    Realistic Car Stereo v.alpine

    i haven't seen a realistic car stereo skin yet. closest was the alpine skin but it looked more like a created image than a real picture. how bout something like this.


    i just spent like 15 mins putting it together. i plan to make it one of the simplest skins only having two to three screens. i don't know if any of you would be interested in something like this.

    anyways i have no idea how to create a skin, or edit someone elses skin so if someone would chime in it would be great.

    with iguidance 3.0

    face buttons still need to be changed to: GPS, PLAY, NEXT, BACK ETC...
    still need a 'maximize button' for making iguidance go full screen with a small menu bar for the song title and controls

    still need playlist and song title (the pic u see is just a representation of what i want to do..i haven't actually started yet, im still making skin images)

    I like it. I don't think it could be my "daily driver", but it goes in a new direction. I could use this to take a "Sunday drive" with...

    RR skin editor makes coding a skin pretty easy. You can find it here.
    Yeah google!

    The biggest drawback that I can see is how limited you are on your "screen" size. iGuidance for example is really limited in vertical display capacity.

    Beyond that, the skin looks nice.
