    Question What software/frontend is this?

    Please help me identify the front-end software on this "vehicle PC". Some of it looks like Vista Media Center but other screenshots, specifically the media player, look like something else. Ideas?

    The last pic says Infill G4, so Streetdeck skinned maybe. Looks like RoadRunner with a simple skin on top of it though.

    THe first is definately MC from microsoft, and the middle pic, could just be a skinned of media center.

    Did a little research and it's definitely similar with the Infill G4, but that is a complete hardware package. I'd agree it's a custom skin on top of RoadRunner or Streetdeck, I'm wondering which one and where to get it though.

    I'm not sure what device the first link shows. It is not a G4 by Infill. Not sure what the front end is either. It does look like a modified version of Windows Media Center.

    The second and third links are definitely an Infill G4. The front end is a custom application that comes with the G4 (if purchased in Europe/Asia). It is called Infillstation (I think). It is not a skin running on top of RoadRunner.

    The G4 can be purchased right here from mp3car.com/store. They have an awesome deal going on right now (not sure how long it will last, so you better hurry) of $2200 retail with a $500 discount to forum members . That's only $1700. Cheap when you consider some of the after-market Nav systems (without PC functions) are $2000 and up. You will not get the Infillstation software as a front end (something about licensing issues). It comes with Steetdeck instead.

    I can confirm what dragon says. I saw the Infil at CES back in January running those applications -- they said it was their own SW.

    Both pictures are definetly showing the Infill G4 (by Maxan) running it's own software called "Infill Station".

    The first shows its Media (music) option, the second one the Main-Screen.
