    The 20 seconds only goes for the 2008 WRX I was writing about - yes, if in doubt about your car, play it safe. In fact, you shouldn't even trust some guy you don't know on this forum even if you do...

    Okay, I'll give you the Alpine codes, but first you have to buy my album at www.JackPryorMusic.com. :hippie: Just kidding... but do check it out! You might like it. (It's part of the reason I've...

    Yes I did! Rest assured you can do it with a simple PIC circuit - mine is installed and working great. I just need to find time to write it all up... I'll try to do so this week.

    Thanks for your thoughts. I'm actually done and have a working hack!! :high5: Just haven't had time to write it up yet.

    The 5V was a total red herring. The controller works without it even...

    Interesting... The sleeve is ground, I measure about 0.1V on the tip, but the ring reads 5VDC and 10VAC, so it's cycling between 0V and 10V. That doesn't tell me much, except that this would be more...

    Need Alpine wired remote control pinout.

    EDIT: Figured it out! Scroll down to Post #9.

    Alpine head unit seems to have a standard 3.5mm stereo jack for wired remote input (i.e. steering wheel controls), but for the life of me I can't find...

    Wow, it has been awhile. Thanks for asking. Truth be told, I've been spending more time on my music than my car PC. (The music's going great though, by the way.)

    So... Designing this was way fun....

    Got a PM I thought I'd reply to here:


    Yeah, the steering wheel definitely has to come off to get to the screws for the button panels. And the airbag DEFINITELY has to come off anyway (if that's...

    Thanks. You know the sad part is that I actually bought some and it's sitting here, but it's lower on the priority list than cleaning up the computer in the trunk.

    The tip is the very end, the sleeve is the long metal part that extends all the way back to the plastic, the ring is the literally ring-shaped metal area between the tip and the sleeve...

    Just to encourage other people, I have had incredible luck with Garmin Mobile PC over the past several months. All I do is keep it running in the background, and when I want to use it I just minimize...

    Sweet! Where did you find technical info on that? I'm not getting very far on Directed's website.

    Umm... I wouldn't guarantee that steering wheel controls will work with the stock stereo. The wiring and connectors are all there, but I don't know that the stereo is programmed to accept those...

    All I can think to suggest is to see if you can tap in and measure the exact resistances in the switch. It's possible that the one for Track + is at the edge of the tolerance for Pioneer, but beyond...

    Sounded like you had dozens of testers so I didn't jump onboard, but I'd be more than happy to test. I'm using an old XM Commander unit wired to COM 1 of the PC. Would love to help.

    PIC's are kinda complicated to use unless you're already fairly solid on computer programming and electronics. (If you are then they're dead simple! But those are pretty high prerequisites for some.)...

    Interesting! That's more complex than I would have guessed. But I guess even a mid-grade processor is worlds cheaper than adding sensors and associated wiring and such.

    So, without any direct...

    You are referring to the Garmin GPS that comes with Mobile PC right? It's USB, so it's a completely different beast than one on a COM port BUT - and this is almost impossible to find info on - you...

    Yeah, the algorithm shouldn't be hard. It's hooking into Windows, stealing touch screen input, tweaking it, and spitting it back at the OS that would take me some research.

    Okay, so 2nd best would be a "virtual touchpad" or "on-screen touchpad" program. Oddly enough I found a patent for just this idea (claim 12 about halfway down) but I'm coming up dry for any actual...
