    I would personally suggest plugins or a front end, as they are well the main requirement/use in this field.

    A plugin would be my first suggestion vs a front end as well to many of them coming out now.. Dont even plan on releasing my font end as well dont need another on the pile.
    Plugins would be handy for most and added more so if you create the same plugin for various packages/front ends. Eg a simple one would be a arduino plugin for centrafuse to allow
    simple device operations using say serial data.

    So perhaps have a look at the various hardware items available and due to be available and then turn them into a plugin or way to connect easily with a software package.

    Most items are available in the way of software or can be sourced, BY ALL MEANS keep with your idea.. Just make sure the idea is one that has not been done 100 times before

    How about a Windows app that lets you answer calls, place calls, and browse the address book, all via bluetooth?

    For bonus points, arrange it with all of the core functionality (pair, answer, dial, browse) in a DLL that exposes a simple API for all of the above, so that the EXE would just be simple UI stuff, calling into that DLL to get all of the real work done. Then plugins can be created for other front ends, using just the DLL plus whatever plugin library each front-end requires.

    And let me know when/where I can download it. Thanks in advance.

    If in addition to the above, while having the DLL accessible. Also perhaps allow the EXE to pass command line arguments to allow for other developers out there to use it with their packages or to at least extend its use a little further

    External touch screen app for iphone or android ?

    I know most new android phones support USB-OTG, ie keyboard and mouse support, would be nice to have support for USB touch screens as a normal HID device, and have an app to support calibration.

    Totally agree with this idea. No matter what the final software is or does, it would always be handy to be able to interface with in other ways so that the feature can be expanded on by others.

    It would be great if u could write some drivers to let USB FM radio receivers work on Android tablet devices.
    Im seriously thinking about installing a android tablet as a media device in my car. but i also listen alot of radio in my car, i would really like it if i could keep doing that with an android tablet.
    so far i havent found any good solution for this problem. only thing is to buy a android tablet with a built in FM receiver. but there isn't much choise here.

    What I would really love to see is an encoder that uses Intel Quick Sync Video. There simply is none, unless you want to pay thousands of dollars for an enterprise license.
    Or a program like MiniCam that can use the UVC H.264 extension under Windows 7.
    Oh yeah... a working handsfree substitute to Bluesoleil would be awesome too. I cant stand this buggy software anymore.

    Android digital gauge cluster from arduino input.

    Hi,

    If you are up for a challenge here is a project that would make me and many other non OBD users happy.

    If you could design an android app to accept and display the inputs of an arduino (in the form of analog rpm and speedo measurements) displaying these measurements as a digital gauge cluster.
    This would be an awesome project that would allow for non OBD people like me ( Ive got an old school mini) to have a fully digital dashboard.

    Chris

    A spin off of this is develop an android app or modify the current app for the Pioneer Appradio 2. There is a bounty set up for it on xda-developers.com and avic411.com

    Currently at $425
