    frodo,

    Thanks for the response, it's sad to say that I have my hands full with all sorts of personal and business projects that I don't have time to read the docs for each of the like 50 pieces required to put a carputer together. With Map Monkey, NaviVoice, Destinator, iGuidance, this that etc ... well, you know.

    I read a lot on these forums, and I google constantly for all sorts of things (carputer unrelated), these days, there's just not enough time.

    Not to mention, I have about 7 other major forums to dig through daily, plus 20+ RSS feeds, email, etc... That can eat up a whole day without getting any work done...

    Anyway, you know how it is, users want it to just work. And that's why consumers buy things from major manufacturers in most cases, because it "just works" rather than have to tinker like us hobbyists.

    Oh and Erorus, yes, please publish it. Everyone needs options.
    It's good to see more software for the scene.

    XM Radio

    Yes please publish it. Our software is written in VB6 and we don't have support for XM. I would love to test this out.
    Spent all my money on carputers now I have to work a real job.

    Here it is, folks:

    NimbleXM.1.0.6.Install.exe 10.6MB

    It's big because it includes the mdac components to get to the database (that part alone is like 7.7mb) along with the VB6 runtime. Install steps:

    1) download and run the install exe
    2) Follow the prompts. If it says that files are in use as you install, just click "ignore"
    3) Run "Install Layouts" under the NimbleXM folder in the start menu
    4) Give it the same path as where you installed the app (probably "c:\program files\nimblexm\" unless you changed it.)
    5) Run the app. It'll ask for the comm port the first time thru. Poke thru the .INI files and ask questions here if you have any.

    Keep getting the message "NimbleXM hasn't heard from the XM radio in a while. Reconnect?" Comport is set to the proper port 3 for my XMPCR.

    Modify the NimbleXM.ini file so that
    Code:
    autoreset xm = true
    How often does it come up?

    edit: Also, I haven't tested it on the XMPCR.. does it work at all?
