    Nice! Thanks Craig.

  3. happyg, I know it is possible to run a radio skin on RR, however, just wondering as to the set-up of getting the signal in. You have replaced the radio in the dash, do you still have radio acces or all your own tracks? I know an FM card can be placed in the computer, but do they also have any cards for AM?
    Just wondering!

    I am using one of the old D-Link USB Radios. I bought that because when I started out with the Car PC I was going to use MediaCar (or MediaEngine - can't remember now, one of them had support for the DLInk). Then Road Runner came out & continued support for it so I stuck with it. The signal comes in through the line in input on the soundcard & Road Runner autmatically mutes/unmutes this line when you start the radio up. I think now RoadRunner supports other radios through software called Radiator but not sure about AM support. I am sure you would find answers over at mp3car.com though. I have not really missed it & don't even really use the FM radio but it is handy every now & then.

    Hope that helps!

  5. Thanks happyg, will check the site.

  7. Gday I bought a wireless key board that looks just the same for $15 at the computer fair, that was in June ! now they are $20.
    I mounted it on a travel table with some velcro.
    We used the system for 24 hrs constant with no problem.

    Almost 2 years on and that link still works with that photo.


    Follow the link and look at the car pc component list...

    one of them is "Counter-Intelligence: Smoke Screen, Oil Slick, Flip-up License Plate, Hideaway Machine Guns"

    I'm sure alot of people have that in their car...

    I have settled on one called Triton for a while now with my own small mods and made my own gauges for the main screen. You can find it here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-s...60-triton.html I can put a link up to it here if anyone wants it, I changed it around a bit to suit embedding oziexplorer etc in RoadRunner.

  14. I am starting to get the hang of making my own skin. Its a very slow process! How did you go about embedding Ozi into RR?

    Yeah, I started one but it is such a big job I didn't have time to finish it. Embedding Ozi wasn't fun at first but I ended up getting it to work reliably using a program called skinbedder from the mp3car website. I have everything you need zipped up somewhere, I did post it on the mp3car website somewhere but can't remember where. I am leaving for holidays tomorrow morning for a week so if you haven't got it sorted by then pm me and i'll dig it up for you and post it here.
