Nice advertising!! Just kidding ... welcome on board Si g. Thanks for the link.
try digital dash 4.0, it costs 39 bucks, and is customizable...thats what i m using...www.gnetcanada.com can download the demo and use it for 15 mins at a time...perfectly stable...its the simplest thing ever...i work long hours, so creatin my own would be time consuming, i paid 39 bucks for the full version, and simply modified their software for my custom use...i ll post some pics in a few days.
I too feel the same way. I purchased a headunit so I can hook the PC into the auxiliary in of the headunit, it has mp3/wma/m3u playback. I kind of prefer the headunit over the PC when I'm driving, at least I know I can change a track without looking at the unit.
The CFX skin I'm using is very pretty and all but I just want something I can use without taking a second glance at the screen. Maybe four to five buttons. only a couple of colors so it doesn't seem like you're looking at a rainbow everytime you want to change a track.
It's too bad I'm not a graphics designer otherwise I would make a very very simple skin for RR. Perhaps there's somebody in the same boat we're in but has the required skills to create the graphics. I can finish off anything that's not graphics related.
