    no offense but it looks ugly to me

    i agree with everyone else if we can't customize it, it isn't worth it, a lot of people on here if you look around like to make it match their car/truck and the direction they are taking their installs, it's one of the things that sets people apart and makes this fun, you see what everyone else CAN think of, not buy.

    another point, winamp is free uses free plugins for remote/lcd and works very well, why would one want to buy something? i could see buying Cobra because it comes from someone who actually does this in their car and it has a personal touch to it.

    You have a ton of different skins on your website that look really nice. Why not use some of those as a basis. Maybe have like 10 templates that you can make small changes to. Why would Gnet care if the end user made something that some might think is ugly?

    It's nice to see some more competition in the Carplayer programs. Keep up the good work.

    Yea, i just want to say that I really like the look and feel of the interface. But if I am gonna spend $40 on it I would like to be able to change the fonts and background images and such. You dont really need to create a tool to do this for us, just leave all the images in single directory with functionality for switching to multiple skin directories... We (and photoshop) can take care of the rest...

    riiiight... yeah.. that will look cool at a car show...
    anyways.. i can't bother using a mouse while driving... i know where the buttons are on my remote, and don't need to look at the remote/screen to control cobra

    Due to the response here i think we will definitly be integrating remote control access.
    very good idea

    Hi,
    I wanna know if e-mail feature would be incluted ??
    And if internet access could be done via mobile phone or WLAN ?

    If your software has the following features and doesn't cost very much ( i'm pooooooooor student ) I think I would buy it.
    - Winlirc integrated ( plugin)
    - LCD support ( or plugin for JaLCDs ( check www.jalcds.de)
    - same buttons for same controls feature
    - MP3&OGG!!!and normal CD
    - Video , Divx,Xvid etc , DVD , VCD , SVCD
    - e-mail
    - external programm louncher
    - good music management ( I mean that you can simply jump inside playlist via button from letter A to B ...c .D .etc
    - TV/Radio ( via WDM ) (would be cool)

    not so inmportant but just as ideas

    - Mobile phone dialing would be cooool ( via AT commands)
    - Image viewer with slideshow
    - quick : Quit shutdown and hibernate function ( that i dont have to exit the go start quit and so on )

    what i wish would be a demo version with only music feature and where the other things are integrated but wouldn t work to test if the proggy merits( hope thats corect word) the price. Kind of trial to see how it looks & run.

    price : think 39$ would be fair if the versions are bug free and the manual would be downloadable as pdf or such and if updates would be free ?

    Important : don't exclude people from other parts of the earth by having to complicated payment .


    Regards

    Felix

    P.S: hope i expressed me right and without misunderstandments. If ther e are such please PM me. ( still don't have dictronary for english)
