Any updates? I've also written a front-end in delphi, but since i've only coded the exact features I want it won't ever have things like camera support etc. I use bassplayer for audio, (http://www.un4seen.com/) and DSPack for video. I don't want/need dvd support so I haven't bothered with that. To update music I created a iTunes style application which connects to the car once it has connected to the wireless network, then sync's databases & uploads music/video files automatically using TCP/IP Stream. Saves me having to load playlists etc using a touchscreen.
I also couldn't be stuffed with the effort of having multiple skins, so the skin is hard-coded into the app too. It only takes a few hours for me to manually update it, and i've only changed skin maybe twice :P Maybe one day i'll code changable skin stuff into it, allowing it to use RR skins or similar. Its just so much work, and don't even mention flash skinning haha
I use MapMonkey embedded in a TPanel for GPS.

I've read that you want use bluetooth, there is bluetooth framework x, but its price is 500$ for complete version (activex and vcl). is there other component for delphi ? Because I'm making a terminal software to discover and pair bluetooth, with python, but It support only ms stack in Windows
About skinning in delphi, one could have a look there.
and its works fine with
