    In the iPhone, perhaps same as iPod, under - Settings, General, 'Auto-Lock'. Can set it to whatever you want including 'never'.

    Right - you can set it to never turn off, so there you go!

    I agree, the switching between modes is not ideal for the car, but I've got some out of the box ideas about what might be possible. I'm still working them out.

    I've been toying around with Dot.tunes, a really cool OS X remote iTunes access program.

    What it does is very simple. You run the program, which effectively turns your computer at home into a server that can be accessed by any browser or your iPhone's Safari browser.

    Try it by logging into the Dot.tunes demo server from either you home computer's web browser or your iPhone/iPod touch:

    Point your browser to this location, which is http://24.94.41.131:9998

    Userid: Guest
    Password: leave the password line blank.

    You'll see the playlists come up on the left hand side and you can click and select a song to listen to. This is precisely how it works on your own machine.

    What this means

    Storage limitations for both video and music no longer matter if you have an internet connection.

    Enjoy.

    Thumbs up Information

    Hey Bugbyte, I have been looking at this site as I want to start my first carpc and can say what you are doing is an inspiration. That being said i ran across an article that may be of interest (its on an Android site) and the link is below. Keep up the good work as I have an iphone and am following this thread closely.

    Bug - or anyone.... Do you think if one has mfr iPod integration in the car for control & full audio..... if one 'could' buy just a screen and sort of just run video to/on that screen with the audio simultaneously going through the mfr iPod fully powering the stock stereo? (I appologize if this is a stupid question).

    OK The big Apple 3.0 SDK announcement. I'm OVERWHELMED. Of note:

    1. Full Turn by Turn so TomTom can finally release their app (and Garmin, etc).
    2. New SDK for accessories.
    3. Full bluetooth - keyboards, speakers, etc. etc.
    4. Stereo bluetooth.
    5. Push notification for everything. (hmmm....)

    So - besides the Turn by Turn of course.... any thoughts on this mere tidbit of what we'll be getting?

    VNC doesn't work though. It's not acceptable (IMO). Delay, choppy. It's pretty bad.
    So it seems wireing is the only way. I'm personally lost as to how to do that.

    In my perfect world, I'd love a Mimo Monitor to somehow hook up to the phone and run the iPhone directly to the car stereo via aux. I wish there was some way to link the iPhone to a mimo. Grab it take it in for use in the home (many uses!) - pop in/out of the car at whim. Simple. Dual-use. I assume there's no way to convert the $50 apple cord video piece to a Mimo. USB video?

    Well, it requires a wired solution using the cable but the cable plugs into the bottom of the iPod and will charge it if you have 5 volts on the USB.

    The mimo requires a computer to drive it. And, you end up in the same place as you did before - you'd still need to connect a USB cable and adaptor between the iPod and the monitor. Presumably, the video quality would be better than it is on composite but that's about it.
