    There is no update in the software.. Right now I am fabricating (the first screen)...

    I will update it as soon as I install the screen and PC...!!
    But for now it is fully functional..
    A/C controls, alarm, garage door opener, neon lights and I am working on controlling the stiffness on the shock absorbers!!

    Replace them with something computer controlled.

    I have knobs in my car as im sure most other people do. How could it be possible to use a servo to turn that if someone wants to maintain physical control over the knob as well? Turning the knob with the servo connected would damage the servo and then throw off the state of its position in regards to the software.

    The attractive part of controlling HVAC with servos is removing the physical knobs and allowing for a larger screen.

    Well.... If you don't have an auto clima you need servos..
    Get some HIGH torque for planes.. CAn be really pricey!!($150 each maybe).. YOu don't need fast servos, but HIGH TORQUE servos with 180 rotation!!!

    For clima control, doors, lights etc and shock absorbers I use Phidgets with Visual Basic!!! They are great!!
