    Is there a chance to overview your source code? (if its object Pascal from Delphi). I could help you with the project if you are interested. Of course, not in the case you want to keep your source code undisclosed.

    PTCruiser,
    I havent attempted to work with the mixer as of yet so im not sure what i will need to do in order to implement that portion of the program. I will be getting to that eventually.

    For all who have offered their assistance,
    For right now i would like to continue working on this project by myself, at least until i have core functionality done and have a stable and usable version of the program. When feature requests start coming in after that im sure it will be difficult for me to do it alone. At which point i will definately make the source code available for anyone out there that would like to contribute to this project. When that happens i will definately make a post about it on these forums to let everyone know about it.

    Attached are some screenshots for some of the functionality, my skin doesnt look the greatest...perhaps some photoshop lessons are in order

    Thanks all!

    Josh

    Status Update:

    Just wanted to keep everyone posted on the progress. I just added gps support into the program. this allows you to use any gps software you would like. it then embeds it into ICES. I have tested this with Microsoft Streets & Trips, and Rand McNally Streetfinder Deluxe. Still working on refining this a little because in order to embed the program properly, you have to set an option that is the text of your programs titlebar. also added 9 customizable macro buttons for the gps screen. this gives you the ability to record macros for your common tasks like zooming, starting the gps tracking etc...then play those actions back with a single button press. (navigating menus on a small touchscreen for a week made me add that feature he he.)

    I plan on actually releasing a beta version sometime around the beginning of April. The following functionality will be available in this first beta:
    MP3, Video, DVD, GPS Integration.
    When i make the beta available i will let you know where to download it.

    Know what? There are *SO* man new (and very functional) projects in the works now. Wouldn't it make sense for everyone to collaborate their efforts in one kick *** project?

    just a suggestion.

    I agree, and if we took everyones ideas and *wishes* we could put together an app with addins to allow a person to customize exactly what he/she would like to see.

    It just makes sense to me. What does everyone else think?

    its been a little while since i posted on here and here is the status.
    the project is moving along really slowly right now, the functionality i have left to finish wont take long, its just a problem of getting to it. i got laid off from my programming job in march and have been looking for employment which has unfortunately taken a lot of time away from this project. but i just got some good news the other day and i am taking a job out in denver colorado. the move from iowa will take a little but hopefully by about the middle of june i will be settled into my new place and ready to really get back to working on this program!

    I actually used it during my recent 12hr drive from iowa to colorado and everything worked like a charm! in fact the only 2 problems i had was with hardware (gps and clouds dont mix), and my dvd rom getting choppy due to the roads. i have a morex case sitting on the top of my dash so if anyone has any helpful hints on how to soften road jitters that would be sweet. i did think about setting a piece of foam in between my dash and box, but if there is anything better ill try that.

    hope to be back up an running soon.

    Later,
