    Car stereo emulation software (screenshots)

    Guys,
    I'm working on car stereo adapters (Car2PC) to PC and was thinking about making it simple to have it always with me if I need to do testing or something. So I decided to write simple emulation software to "fool" the PC thinking that it is connected to a real headunit Tricky huh ?
    Anyway here is the screenshot of it.


    Of course if anyone wants to write a plugin for Car2PC adapters, he/she can use it as a jump start even not having the real adapter.
    I'll post the source and skins and everything else by end of the week.
    What you think guys ?

    Hey,
    It is ready now to show off.
    If you want to see how the emulator works, do these steps:
    1. Install WinAmp plugin for Car2PC adapter
    2. Unpack anywhere you want Emulator

    Run install_emu.bat in the Emulator directory.
    Run Emulator. It will say "No Changer"
    Now run WinAmp, Emulator will be connected to it.
    Load Winamp with the music and now you can control your Winamp the same way as you would do using your regular car stereo !
    Whenever you attach Car2PC adapter, the Winamp plugin will switch over to it immediately.
    The next version will be displaying text and stuff the way some headunits can (like BMW)

    Have fun !

    The interface itself is simple. The biggest problem with it is the harness. It' is getting so nasty that they use so many different plugs.. Why is that for ?
