    I like the icons on mp3 screen. The icons are so strong very usefull and simple.

    You can try orange (same like your dasboard lights) for the lines instead of white. It would match better with your interieur. The photo-like icons are not so strong. You can try a typical radio for hi-fi, an usual tv, an usual phone that anyone can guess what it is. The bracelet on main screen was ugly, and the texture on it makes even the elephants sick.
    You can put the m icon somewhere in the corner and much smaller. It would be cool for engine status screen. The background effect is too strong reduce it overall and reduce it more under the buttons.

    I'll give you a simple tip for better looking bevels. Try this one;

    1. ctrl+n open new document 400x400 white background
    2.ctrl+shift+n create a new layer
    (you don't have to call it mylayer it sounds ghey)
    3. draw a circle like 200x200 on the new layer and hold shift for the aspect ratio as you are drawing it
    4. fill it with black (press d for black)
    5. ctrl+shift+n create a new layer and put it above the other layers
    6. hold ctrl and click on the layer with circle, this way you can select the outline of this layer. If you hold shift, you can draw nice straight lines.

    There is a crazy *** pixel on dvd icon so kill him.
    7. go to top layer and don't lose your selection choose gradient tool (shift+g)
    click on gradient settings at top. Make a gradient: color: white to white and opacity: 0 to 100.
    8. fill the selection with this gradient. Begin from top of selection till 10 pixels under the selection.
    9. put the top layers opacity to 60-70 it depence on you

    Now you have a glass looking ball. You can use any image instead of black circle.

    I currently don't have photoshop installed on my pc but as soon as i have it i'll help you more technically. I'll have my adobe cs2 in several days. Don't do too much. Try less opacity on photoshop effects and don't support the war.

    very nice
    i really don't have to say too much this time.
    put a play next track and prev track buttons somewhere that you can control the music anytime without quitting the current application.
    i would suggest you use the same type for all icons. Don't use differently type(illustration, photo, etc.) or differently color schema (bw, sepia, color) on same set.
    some suggestions for the main icons;

    phone: http://www.genuinerecordingsaustinte.../old_phone.jpg
    music: http://www.shopnbu.com/classic-turnt...cd-jukebox.jpg
    tv: http://www.vladstudio.com/photoshopt...images/6-7.gif
    gps: http://www.boku.ac.at/irub/compass.jpg

    background is still too strong. www.deviantart.com here you can find some interesting brushes for photoshop. and don't worry about the bracelet, i see it's gone.
