    Top Secret Interface **UPDATE**

    Well after four month of coding and procrastination the interface (code name Fairlady) is about 85% done.

    Currently here are the functions:

    MP3 player. Uses Folders as playlist

    Music Video / Movie Player. Uses Folders as Playlist

    DVD Player. Will play DVD's, VCD's, MP3, and/or Video. *must have dvd software already install to play DVD's.

    GPS Nav launcher. Given the different GPS setup out there, decide to launch installed program rather than embed one.

    Camera. Uses webcam.

    Cell Phone Interface. Uses AT command compatible cell phones. Loads stored phonebook.

    Everything list is also voiced command. Still have to work on switch between webcams and error trapping before its finished (but sooo close )

    Here are a few screen shots, will make a video demo when finished.

    Default Screen:


    Menu:


    MP3 Player (M):


    Video Player Menu (V):


    Music Video (Videos):


    Camera's Menu (C):


    Rear view Camera: *pointed at the screen


    and Lastly

    Cell Phone (#):



    Once again the Alphared symbol will NOT be in the program.
    Hopefully I can get this done in a few weeks. I'll be looking for 3-4 beta tester to work out the bugs and test it in everyday situation.
    Don't pm me with request. Email to betatester@taylormacintosh.com , if you are interested.
    Include system you have, os, experience, location and don't forget name.
    Require OS would be win98 and up, 600mHz and a connection to the internet.
    Beta testers will get a full working version after testing for free. As far as price, have not decided yet, but will not be more than 40. (I'll let the beta testers decide on a fair one)

    Sorry for the long post but just excited that I'm almost finish

    Great...

    but will not be more than 40. (I'll let the beta testers decide on a fair one)

    But I don't think people like to pay for this kind of software...

    => remember cobra?

    Any way your interface are looking great and why not a donate or sharware concept...

    Wasn't here early enough for cobra. From what I've read, the guy built it with help from people here and then went commercial. I haven't done that. I haven't set a price yet or offer it for sale, so its not set yet. I'll let people here decide if they want it or not.

    Thanks, but if you had spent more than five month coding and rendering 3d images and sort, would you just post it out and give it away?

    Yes...

    Anyway perhaps a demo version or a time limited version...

    Beacause screenshoot are not enough...

    For cobra the only help was user feedback!

    Sorry for my aggression.

    No offense but I would NOT pay for this software.

    Remember the problem with charging for software, is that the day you launch it, I would venture out and say a WEEK after you will find some type of crack for it.

    too add on to that.. there really isn't a big market to charge money for a app like this.. but thats just me. There are so many other alternatives out there, you have to make a killer app to get people to pay for it.

    If someone wants to sell their software, that is their choice. It is your intelectual property and you have every right to do so.

    If you don't want to buy it, don't.

    Alphared spent a lot of time working on this. He has created a unique interface with little to no assistance from anyone here. He stated "no more than 40" sounds more than fair to me.

    A limited (by some means be it featurs or time expiration) demo might be in order though.. I hate paying for things.. especially software.. if i've never seen them in action.

    good luck

    Jeeez, $40 that much?
    C'mon guys get the coal out of your butt, it's turning into a diamond!

    IMHO it's looking really good, the video on the shots looks a bit small, but its all under development.
    Whilst spending money on hardware and getting decent kit is good, it's the software that makes an application. If it aint easy to use and looks good when why bother in the first place. Anyone with an empeg will till you why it's so much better than any of the other commercial in dash mp3 solutions.
    $40 is hardly a bit chunk of what a screen, motherboard, cpu, snd/vga/network/wifi/hard drive must have cost you.

    So those of us who have stated we are not interested in purchasing such software, are *******'s? because it is our choice not to buy it?
    Like I said I will not buy this software, but if others will, better yet for the seller.

    Make a demo. You tell us to get the coal out of out butts... and the only reason is some screen shots? Game makers realized this doesnt work too well a long *** time ago.

    And besides, not everyone here is a yankee. $40US = a buttload in canadian.
