    looks very good! simple and good!

    The way you have your audio-player split into basically the list and some other area (whre you currently have the cdrip button etc)...

    I think this is a good candidate for putting a GPS map in there! what do you think? If you can get a square area in there I'll whip up some .skin files if you want...

    also your volme buttons, and gamma buttons are not in the same style...

    VOLUME: -----\ /----- GAMA /----- -----\

    do you see what I mean? I think both should have the "angle" IN THE SAame direction

    The skin looks really good so far....
    Will you be doing a Weather skin?

    Just out of curiosity, Why does the "In" button on the lower right look like a volume button?

    I imagine the "In" and "Out" are inside and outside temperature, and the button below the "In" label is a mute..

    hey m8, I really like your skin... as I said above it seems perfect for having a "combined" Music/GPS screen... what do you think about it?

    I whipped this up real quick just for fun... it would look cool with FD imo!

    Thanks guys, sorry I haven't responded in a while, but I like the enthusiasm and these are all really good suggestions.

    RoyN: I like the idea of the split GPS/MP3 function... I would probably not replace the audio_player skin with it... add a button to the it called "show map" or something along those lines, that would call a skin that would look like what you suggested, and then have a "hide map" on that screen to take you back to the original. I could even make the one with GPS the default and then you can choose to hide the map if you want to see the buttons.
    As for the volume and mute/dimmer buttons, that is just honestly personal preference. I tried flipping them when you first suggested it and for some reason didn't like it as much. This could be changed though.

    kiztope: I would like to make a weather skin. I hadn't planned one originally, but I may do a link to it from the "web" screen. I'll just have to wait and see.
    And as for the "In" and "out", froop was right about them being temperature. I just haven't implemented that yet.


    I'll try to post some more updates as they come along. I just wish I had more time to spend on it. Thanks guys

    Hey maiwand, thanks for keeping us posted

    I agree aboiut having a toggle button for music/gps or music only... Some users might not even have GPS on their systems, and the ones who do may wish to have it off at some moments so it is really best as an option...

    I see about the buttons not looking right whn you made them symmetrical, yeah, it may be the case, if you think this looks better than I'll trust you, it looks great! you have a great talent which I envy...
