Hey, I took it as flattery, I could care less about where your idea came from. I'm more concerned about where this is going. Love it so far!!!Quote:

Your skin is even better suited to this type theme because the main menu options drop down. You could put the function specific buttons along the left border where my main ones are.
Last request for now - when brainstorming Nav layout, consider maximizing height. I don't know about you, but I use the full height (top to bottom) of my screen for nav. I know this means I have to give up the song title real estate and change the flow of the background, but every little bit I can see in front of me helps and the sides are worthless until I need to turn. I have examples if you're interested in pursuing this.
:nw: :nw: :nw: You got skills, I just got ideas :tard: My ultimate goal was ergonomics - put the same button on ever screen in the same place. Once I learn/memorize where it is, I can pay more attention to driving.
Too many buttons! Aargh, it scares me!Quote:

Skins need more structure so we have fewer but much bigger buttons. It's one of the things I really like about the OEM navigation system in my wife's new Civic Hybrid. You have to got through a few more pages to get things done but the buttons are all enormous.
dinasty if you need a beta tester ( on pentium 3 ) , i can.
Actually, i have the mc2 skin and runs GOOD.
True, you're absolutely right. Big buttins require more pages/more steps to accomplish some tasks. That's a major trade-off designers face: simplicity vs utility.Quote:

I look forward to where this one is going, this is exactly like what I have been looking for since I abandoned mine.
I have never eager to use RR. I have seen several skins that made me tempted, but I have always been a diehard Frodo and Centrafuse user. This skin has become my calling to RR. Great Job!
Simply astounding mate,good job.
Ok, that just blew me away. Love that search function. Cant wait for the release!
very cool. I look forward to giving this a shot when it's released. I didn't see any GPS software demo. What's the planned support?
iG with sendkeys :) However, MM & FD support is just a matter of changing a few commands.Quote:
