Briefly discussed here
Listen to my newbie idea! (mini touchscreen on door panel)
Is there a program out there that will control them? I looked around a lil bit but didnt see anything other than music/media software. thanks for helpin a n00b...
The hardware depends on the make and model of your car. As far as generic software, I'm not aware of any, but the code to emulate a couple knobs and sliders is cake. It's hooking it up to the car's hardware that makes the project a bit more difficult, but there are a few people here working on it.
^yeah thats what i was thinkin..... its gonna be hard to control the vacume tubes......
I am working on a similar project right now!!
HVAC control.. Neon, door, windows controls etc..
Also the background will change when lights turn on, doors open, night (with light sensor) etc etc..
Also parking door control...
The buttons havea push-effect...
Ignore the empty boxes..
