    I have been leaning towards the all-in-one solution with the full PC installed in the dash but the more I think about it, it seems like it might be better to have the PC installed elsewhere so that it is more accessible for upgrades, repairs, etc. Can anyone who has had installed the PC in the dash comment on any problems they encountered with this setup and if they would do it this way again. I would hate to have to tear my dash apart if I wanted to plug in another USB module or upgrade a component at a later time.
    thanks,
    Murray

    I was wondering how much room a dedicated bluetooth module would take up rather than use a usb bluetooth dongle?

    @ FMode:
    We'll be using Bascom-AVR as the primary development studio for the AVR's. Bascom has an integrated RC5 and RC6 IR command set, which makes it very easy to implement. However, send me any documents you have - I'd appreciate it.

    @ tfboy:
    I agree with you. The extra wires would be a hassle. The integrated tuner is really useful when it's an all-in-one system. I suppose the tuner should be an option - or maybe it should only included in the all-in-one model.

    Probably not that much. The problem with this is that most people will not need or want to pay for the bluetooth feature(s). It might make it into a later revision of this product, but not the first release. Also, keep in mind the options for bluetooth/FE software - they seem fairly limited right now.

    I added some additional fields to the waiting list. You can select which specific model you'd like to be on the waiting list for. If you'd like to be on the waiting list for the Version 2 or Version 3 models, you may sign up again and choose the appropriate model, just add a note that says you're updating your previous record. Otherwise you will remain on the list for the first "basic" version, Version 1.

    PS: There is only one customer who did not provide any information (other than a phone number). If this is you, please re-submit the rest of your contact info - specifically an email address. Resubmissions are ok - they will be weeded out accordingly.

    Updated specs on the website!

    Thanks Brett - good idea to change the sign up form.

    I signed up again for the version 3. Can't wait!

    Thanks.

    Another thought (I'll eventually shut up!) is to have the backlit buttons with user-definable colours.

    You can get small LED-lit buttons which can be programmed to light up red, gree, blue, yellow, white, etc.

    I can't see this adding any real cost (it's pents / cents difference) and may appeal to a much wider community who wish to have the screen integrate with the lighting colour of the dashboard.

    As an example, in Europe, SEAT cars have red-lit dashboards, VW have blue and Skoda have green (I'm a Skoda person myself )

    Keep up the good work. I'm getting impatient now for version 1

    It's time for another CAD update! See below:

    Nice and clean. Beautiful, Brett. Congratulations.
    Can it be turned upside down if someone so wishes?

    Do you know what kind of drivers the rotary encoder and buttons will use yet? I'm just trying to figure out if I need to learn how the scroll wheel/encoder setup that most people use works or if it will be something new. Great work so far.
