what are people using for the interface?
i keep hearing "roadrunner" but was unable to find a website or sumthing for it.
im so confused with this, confused but excited
I use Road Runner, it has its own site, run by some dude, if you read the MP3 car Road RUnenr Thread you'll hear about him, Guino or somthing. Anyway, I use my Thinkpad Laptop via Docking Station under the drivers seat, and power invertor to power the dock. That way I can just take my laptop out of the car when I'm not using it. All the wires I had/have to run are the VGA, Aux Input, USB touchscreen cable and GPS - USB Cable, PLus power to the invertor. No need to run a USB cable for the cell phone, becuase I have PhoCo for my cell via Bluetooth for complete phonebook and touchscreen dialing compatablility. Using the Xenarc Touchscreen or flip out VGA (without touchscreen) combined with the Griffin Power Mate, which fits very nicely in the cup holders on the 850, you should have a Darn good setup.
1. You'll need all thats listed above and an after-market HU
2. You'll need to be able to mess with Roadrunner in orde rto get all ur apps running, and GPS working.
3. You'll need a GPS program, I use Streets and Trips 2006, combined with a Holux Sirf III GPS Antenna.
4. If you want cell phone integration, you'll need a bluetooth phone, and compatible computer. (and the Phonecontrol software)
