    With RoadRunner, my Car2PC was able to read the Track Up/Track Down, and the "Preset" buttons. I honestly didn't experiment that much with it, because a client delivered a copy of StreetDeck.
    However, that same client now has the money to build his system, and he's looking more at RoadRunner than StreetDeck because of the head unit functionality. This is a big deal to them, and I don't have the programming skills to make it happen. Hell, the unit is listed as being compatible with StreetDeck.

    I am currently using the Car2PC adapter with Centrafuse (from fluxmedia.net) It works pretty good but there are a lot of features that are still missing and bugs that needs to be fixed.

    I have looked all over the place, including emailing the support for Car2PC but I havent been able to locate the source code for it.

    These are the current functions that are available.

    Next Track, Previous Track, Disc +, Disc -, Shuffle/Random, Fast Forward and Rewind.

    Thats all I can think of, but there might be more.

    If someone find the Centrafuse source code please post it.

    No help from indashpc?

    At this point it doesn't look like there's any help coming from the indashpc side of the house. While I received an email this past summer saying they were working on it, the last I've heard is that there is no plan for a Streetdeck plugin because it looks like it's been siderailed by a Centrafuse plugin in development.

    It doesn't seem like too much work would be needed to get this code actually working with the hardware (if only I knew how to code).

    Would that be the Centrefuse plugin I'm working on?

    I'm only working on it because I have Centrafuse. I'm not affiliated with InDashPC in any way. I have, however, mentioned (on InDashPC) my intention to open it up a bit after completing the CF one to allow it to be easily ported to other CarPC software.

    Yeah, nm....my mistake. Good on you for working on the plugin on your own, Nerve. The support from indashpc is almost as bad as trying to get a streetdeck bug fixed! It's surprising, too, considering indash's business would skyrocket with functioning SD and CF plugins. Thanks for your help with the CF plugin!

    That's ok, you have an RX-8, the car I am in the process of buying (if my dealer ever finds me the one I want)!

    I'm still very much actively, working on the plugin so once it's done (maybe a couple of weeks) then I will consider opening it up to allow plugin developers for the different front ends to use it. If anyone is interested in interfacing with this library then let me know.

    Good deal...Let me know if you have any questions about setting up a computer in the RX-8. There are a few great places to put the pc, and two great options for mounting the screen.

    3. Start StreetDeck, Goto Settings | General | Input | Plugins
    4. Choose the Car2PC plugin, then click enable
    5. Scroll and find the functions you want to set, choose one, then press a button on your head unit connected to the adapter
    6. Repeat for all buttons, save the settings and your done!


    Note, this plugins is used for input only, it will not display any text ouput on the head unit.

    This plugin was developed and tested using the emulator only, it was not tested on a real head unit, please post your review of this plugin after using it.


    Has anyone anywhere gotten this to work on streetdeck? please post your source code, dll or anything helpful.
