I have lost patience for the time being with CF. Their direction in their product is not what I am looking for so I want to move on and try RR.
From what I read there are basically 2 main options: DFX and Carwings. How do I decide which one to use or are they the same with just a different look?
I get the impression that plugins are skin specific and not necesarily available for both. If that is the case, here are my priorities:
I just did a fresh install of Windows 8 (dev copy) and Winamp Pro, CF is not installed and likely won't be unless I can't figure RR out.
1. Sirius Radio with Mitch's adapter
2. Good quality audio through optical out to an external X-fi card, no on board sound shaping required, I have an external processor.
3. Garmin Mobile PC
4. Voice commands and maybe BT phone if it will perform well enough (otherwise I will continue to use my Parrot) since I lucked out on one of those DS350 mics from ebay for $20
5. Elm OBD
6. Broadband wireless USB stick and Wifi for connectivity
The rest is all gravy to me.
Thanks in advance for the primer on RR!
Why is Elite 2 not an option? It has all the plugins you want. It's in "beta", but is fully functional.
I am having trouble figuring out where to set up some of the other features. IE: Sirius works in Car Wings but I can't figure out how to add it to Elite so a button shows and works. Also GMPC opens when I select guidance but it does not embed. I'm not grasping the concept here on plugins. Do I need to D/L them somewhere for this specific skin and install or do I just need to alter setup somewhere in the settings?
Any help would be appreciated. I guess I was spoon fed with "the market" in CF
