    Volume rise to match increase in road speed

    This is a "request" or reality check, to those of you software wonder people out there, is it possible to create an application that increases the volume as the cars speed rises ? I am thinking this would be awesome, and I can think of two ways to achieve this, either some micro switches that get activated by the gear lever, so 3rd gear has more volume than 2nd and 4th has more volume than 3rd and so on, or is it possible by the OBD interface and some simple OLE links (if <speed> greater than <60> then increase volume by <5>%) or something like that or am I dreaming and creating headaches for myself ?

    This is very possible. The easiest ways would be to just use OBD II to just read the speed directly and transform it into a volume modifier using some equation or use the speed read from a GPS device. This feature will be offered with my software when its released in a few months.

    Garry just added a speedo to the Destinator display in MediaCar... I just posted here Destinator with Speed/Bearing, and Winamp control to suggets he might tie this into the volume.

    Wouldn't increasing the volume increase the ambient noise and therefore increase the volume which would then increse the ambient noise which would then...

    Sorry I thought it was a given that you would filter out the stereo music from the ambient noise
