    Prelude

    I know, it's a car model, but it also means 'An introductory performance'.

    This brings me straight to the first problem:
    Is there a 'slider' option for frequency as well?
    Just have a look at the radio screen and you know what I mean, I want an old fashion frequency slider.

    There's no "frequency" slider, but I could count that as a request. Question is, do you just want to display the current tuning position ? If you want to control it, then you should tell me how you'd like it to work.

    PS: Love the RR logo on the "grill" of the car.. haha

    Guino: consider it a BIG request, and yes, I want it to show the current tuning and jump to the right frequency when selecting a preset.
    Control preferrably done with the up and down buttons (as I placed on either side of the frequency scale).
    The RR logo I did as I didn't want a car brand in it and say yourself, it's a nice touch (ps the car is a Honda Insight).

    This is a Beauty!
    Like this classic look a lot.
    Maybe a bit dark, could be better if the buttons had a glow on them.

    Keep it going

    the first thing that come to my mind when i look at the screenshots is there is a lot of wasted (empty) space. Even if you dont want to change the size of the buttons (there ok) you can make the areas that display text larger and use bigger fonts.
    There dosent seem to be enough contrast with the text and the buttons, with the text being almost the same color as the button, but with a black outline, and other things like pinstripes going through the text make it harder to read on first glance.

    As for the look, i like the theme. Im assumeing your going for metal on the buttons? If so i would did a little bit deeper and come up with a good metal texture as a base, a lot of people screw this up and there metal looks like weird plastic, overall i would play with the contrast a bit to make the important items pop a tad bit more. Right now it seems like your trying to match the contrast of the car in the first screen, which isnt a bad idea, it just has low contrast. Just something to tweek.

    I love the look though, simple, keep goin at it.

    I wanted a clean simple look, that's why the term 'wasted space' springs to mind, I personally would call it tidy and clean LOL

    I'll have a look at this when I finished this one, maybe this one should be night skin?!?

    its getting better, i would still make the text pop more though (just me). If you take a look at your blue text, you can see how much easier that is to see and read and for the most part that font is smaller than the others.
    Other than that its comeing along, lookin good.
