    We have made a software just like some other scan tool which have some additional features like Media Player, Pop based Email Checker, Internet Explorer, Navigation, WebTracking, Phone, Virtual Dashboard along with a Configuration Panel. A breif description of features.

    Media Player:
    It is just a regular Windows Media Player interfaced with the software so that you can play your desired media files from the same interface. An additional amplifier or the one in your car is connected to the car's computer so you dont need any additional speaker setup the existing will work.

    Internet Explorer:
    A simple internet explorer which gives connectivity through GPRS.

    POP Based Email:
    You can configure your pop based email accounts in your car.

    A navigation system which is connected to a GPS reciever gives you your exact location on map (15 feet accuracy).

    Web Tracking:
    The car can be tracked on web.

    If you have a bluetooth enabled phone or can connect the phone via a cable or infrared through your computer all the calls and messages will be displayed on your LCD.

    Virtual Dashboard:
    A virtual dashboard module which is just a scantool.

    Moved to the Software Dev forum.
    The Worklogs forum is for installations-in-progress.

    I agree that some screenshots or a website would be awesome to see more about what you've done.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
