    CarCloud, great concept. The key would also be to optimize for stable cloud connectivity while on the move.

    I suggested that mp3car award Kev000 a Sheeva plug as their October innovation grant and they agreed. So, now the lead devel on LinuxICE will have a Sheeva as well. Hopefully, he'll see possibilities with it that I haven't yet.

    Go for it. Jailbreaking my 3GS running 3.1 = flawless.

    Not sure if this interests anyone but this guy hooked up a PS/2 keyboard to his iPhone somehow.

    Inspiration?



    By The way, we also shot video of an i-phone controlling a suspension system last week at SEMA 2009. That will be online in a few days.

    Nicely done! Of course, they are using the iPhone to control a laptop, which controls the hardware.

    This is sort of the direction I've been headed because it uses the iPhone as an interface while distributing the computing across other computers.

    Hey Bugbyte, I've been following this thread for a while (before I became a member ) and love it as I've been dying to build a custom dash mounted iphone dock into my dash and have it look and operate as clean as possible at the current time.

    I mainly use my iPhone in my car for...

    - Navigon turn by turn awesome navigation
    - ipod
    - hands free phone

    I have already fabbed my mount (horizontal since I hate cover flow and don't use video in the car, but want phone and ipod controls upright).

    Here's my iphone in dash mount (that I'll be refinishing this weekend to clean up imperfections in my first fab ever)
    factory finish iphone mount fabbed into dash - 97 4runner

    I'm ok with touch screen on the iphone for nav, and phone I mainly use the voice controls with my blue tooth hands free visor, what I hate is using itunes touch screen controls.

    I know you've kind of redirected your efforts from replacing car pc to the cloud angle, since there is no touch screen input method yet, but have you found any wireless controls that could be steering wheel mounted simply for the iPod controls.

    with all your research I though you might have come across something like this http://www.isimplesolutions.com/ipod-adapter/WiFli.asp
    but works without having to plug a receiver into the doc, since I already use the mounted doc for charging and input into my stereo. have you come across any wifi remotes that control ipod through the iPhone's built in wifi capabilities.

    BTW, I'm also about to buy PLX kiwi wifi and DashCommand for ODBII functionality from my mounted iPhone and can't wait!

    after some late night browsing I have clarified what I really want is a way to...

    OPTION 1. use the functionality of volume up/down and next/previous track on the wired iPhone headphones (mic and call answer/end would be cool too)

    AND

    still output the iphone's audio to my cd players RCA input (basically need to split the mic jack input in order to input the iphone wired headphones AND the radio's audio in RCA to 1/8" mini cable

    OR

    OPTION 2. use a wireless remote like this product (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_142IPNR...it.html?tp=241) and then figure out a way to still charge the iphone from the doc

    have you come across any way to do what I'm talking about?
