    Question Need Inspiration

    Hello,

    Well I thought it would be cool to write a front end of my own. I have researched the existing front ends like Ride Runner etc. but I have not come across anything that completely satisfies my taste. So I fired up the VB and the C# IDEs and have come quite aways. I have integrated things like GPS data logging/parsing, near real-time WiFi scanning using the Windows native wireless LAN API, media management and playback, power management, application embedding and more. As I continue on this project I keep thinking I am reinventing the wheel. Their are existing applications that pretty much cover the canvas of front end capabilities.

    So I guess I am turning to the mp3car community for some new unique ideas. If you have any ideas no matter how simple or complicated drop me a line. I would love to make this front end more unique than the lot. I can almost see this front end being the product of the mp3car community but that is a ways out. In closing any comments, questions or concerns will be appreciated!

    hello,
    the frontend has to be designed thinking in the person who will use it is driving a car!, so you should be very simple, not distracting, intuitive, able to handle basic functions pause, seek, next song, answer phone call with only three or four buttons. (like stereos do)
    The sound is very important, the software should give many audio settings, trebble bass equalizer, loudness, automatic gain control (songs recorded too loud).
    And one of most important things is that it is reliable! that no hanging, it is very frustrating that the program will hang or crash when you are driven, or when it's going to power on or off.
