    I do intend to add support every feature I possibly can for this skin.. I do not know how much trouble it is to support the PNG format in VB... I know it is not directly supported, but I'll look into it..
    Wait a moment. If it's not directly supported, maybe you'll need a lot of time and code for implement it, when you can do other more interesting things. Transparency is not a priority, since the background will be always the same (the black "screen"). It can just be displayed over the main graphic, and problem solved with JPGs or BMPs.

    what GPS software is that in your pic?
    It's Via Michelin MapSonic. But again, remember, those screenshots are a concept, I don't know if MapSonic can be enbedded that way.

    just got to say, I think this skin looks excellent... Well done!

    What I find attractive is that is looks quite simple, yet professional. It reminds me of standard manufacturer 'car computer' interfaces. I started a skin like this a long time ago but couldn't get the 'look' just right... It looks to me that you have, once again good work I can't wait to see the finished article.

    If I could recommend anything to improve the UI it might be the facility to change track prev/next (or when listening to radio change between presets), I am wondering if the CONFIG button will be useful on every page too.

    Sorry - am I the only one here who likes the way GPS (in my case, IGuidance) embeds in the current brushed alum skin? I like the GPS window to be as larg as possible, and this sking clutters the screen with the other buttons. Regardless, I like the look a lot. It looks clean. But again, I like simplicity on the GPS screen.

    DonŽt worry. That picture is an idea of main menu displaying general info, but if you press the GPS button, youŽll see a "full screen" GPS, if you press the audio one youŽll see the specific audio player, etc.

    It would be very easy to make an alternative GPS screen to run the gps embedded using little space in the screen... I intend to add a GPS skin update that uses more of the screen in the next update of RR (with play/pause etc + a seekbar) but I intend to remove the info bar on top of MM for that.. regardless of people liking it or not, I will leave the old .skin file and images in place so whoever doesn't want to use the new gps skin, can simply rename 2 files and be done with it.. having the option is always great.. I for instance don't mind the space for the map because I typically only listen to the voice prompts..
