    looks good. What software are you using for the voice control? Is it able to recognize your voice while driving and while the music is on?

    Site says he is using SA2004 for voice nav and WMP for voice media control.

    That's nice!
    Is voice control really working well for you? I keep thinking about buying a microphone and trying it out.

    Elements are suprisingly nice cars. Sure, they look a little different, but they're so original, and really nice actually.

    The voice control for the GPS is Street Atlas 2004, you can also get next turn, present location etc. from the F keys. I use WMP for voice control of music (one of the Plus packages adds voice). The 2 have different tags so I have to preface commands with "DJ" for the WMP and "computer" for the GPS (you can change them). I keep the mic tucked into the seat cover near my right hand so it's easily reached. I tried mounting it but external noise made it touchy.

    The dvd remote also seems to work with WMP but only for pause, stop, next and volume. Works fine for picnics and tailgates.

    I'm working on sharing the bluetooth dial up connection so passengers can have web/email access on long trips and also a back seat screen.

    I've also seen a usb device that'll let you use Playstation controllers on a PC that I may add for backseat gaming.

    I've never done a project like this but the Element is so roomy and functional that we use it for way more than just driving (camping, tailgates, picnics, etc.).

    Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback. This site is an awesome resource.

    Thanks. It took a little getting used to. Since it uses windows voice control you need to make sure you are in "voice command" mode and that the WMP window is active. You also need to speak directly into the mic (I use a small round mic that I can cup in my hand). I've had occasions where if the music was too loud the mic would interpret it as a command and skip to another playlist (always the Four Tops for some unknown reason). I get around that by tucking the mic into the seat cover which shields it from external noise. Also you can toggle the voice control on and off by tapping the screen as well. All in all once you get used to it it works great.

    It's particularly nice at tailgates where you can change tracks from the back of the car.
