    What are you using to get the gps data displayed on the bottom of the screen? (you mentioned his on your site that the text on the bottom of the screen was GPS information)

    Each screen shown there is part of a VB application - on the Music Screen, it's just pulling data from the GPS and showing it in a text box - so they're not showing up on the desktop or saything like that. The mapping software (OziExplorer) is running in the background all the time, and I imagine the speed and heading details are pulled from there.

    Does that answer the question? (I'm not sure if it does!)

    OziExplorer has an API that means it can call functions in the VB app upon new data available. It does this every second to show the speed and heading.

    The VB app additionally has a list of post office locations throughout Australia that are scanned each second and their distance calculated from the current position. The closest one is shown on the screen as the "current" suburb.

    No prizes for guessing who wrote the software!

    I'll take some clearer action screenshots when the new screen arrives.

    New Screen on the way

    Ordered a 7" screen from Armen, which has now arrived - now to install it.

    Found the worlds smallest (well, maybe) powered USB hub (about 70mm x 20mm x 10mm), which will form part of the new centre console control panel so that I can use the USB mini keyboard I bought from ebay. The hub runs on 5v, so I don't even need to fool around with powering it.

    w00t!

    No sooner than I get my filthy paws on the new 7" screen, and it's time to uninstall, return the car to stock, and prepare for the next installation in a new car. New car/pics/dramas to come!
