    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.

    That's sweet man, let me know when you're done and how it went, I'm planning on using VB as well for all my controls.
