    Is that just called a "Front End"? I'm really new to this car software stuff...

    think of a front end as a quick launch setup... it is typically driven by a program (frodoplayer, mediacar, roadrunner, etc) and it is then skinned... so everything you can see is considered the skin and depending on how the frontend is written you can access certain functions from each mode (modes being music, movie, etc)... some frontends let you control mp3s while you are running GPS software...

    so take RoadRunner, the front end is just a fancy way of controlling winamp, media player and your choice of GPS... it also has functionality for XM and FM... there is a new weather screen that pulls data (thru wifi) when available...

    Centrafuse also pulls traffic data if available...

    Meedio doesn't support GPS software I don't think. I used FrodoPlayer a little bit but it seems a little cheap to use. I would like to use software that is somewhat good quality and has everything I'm looking for. Can someone help me out?

    Sorry about the above information...I did not use the software enough to give any good feedback. For one I didn't even know that the owner of frodoplayer is part of this message board...so I guess I didn't think anything of it when I posted that comment. I did not mean to say the above comment in a negative way. Sorry frodobaggins.

    dork.

    if you mean cheap, as in free, then yes, you are right. otherwise, develop your own somewhat good quality software and then criticize.

    Sounds like you should look into Centrafuse.

    You do realize that by bashing FrodoPlayer, you're incuyrring the wrath of thousands (OK, maybe dozens) of Frodo's fanbois, all of whom happen to be smoking primates. You'll be lucky if you don't have both eyes burnt with half-finished Marlboros.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
