What you're proposing is putting a $150-$200 android tablet (think Google Nexus 7 or the newly released Nook 7" tablet) into a din slot and integrating it professionally. I'm sure with the proper funding, you can get this done right and make $$$$ for yourself, while keeping the price to under $400 or so (definitely not going to cost $800). It's just a matter of integrating is professionally.

It would be a HUGE win for both you and everyone out there wishing for a better android unit in their car. What do you say!!
I would love to see something like that come to light. Considering I've had my D99 for less than a year, I'm actually very disappointed. The only reason I keep going is because of M3Evo's ROMs. I really only use 2 apps on Android: Mixzing and NavFree, and I almost never use the WinCE side, except when the phone rings or I'm in reverse. I could complain some more, but it comes down to 3 major gripes: 1) The resistive touch screen is a joke, 2) the hardware was 3 years old the moment the D99 came out, 3) There's no support or bug fixes from Dynavin's staff.


Anyway, I actually came on with a question. I'm not sure which ROM I have, at the moment, I can only see that the image file on my SD card is from April 2, 2012, it's probably 1.2. I noticed that my programs and even my launcher, seem to be a bit forgetful about 25% of the time. When I start my car and open up Mixzing Player, I sometimes get welcome and tips screens as if this is my first time running the app, it forgets all of my settings. Same thing happened with poweramp, which I no longer use. NavFree is doing it, as well, I click the icon and it says "installing, please wait." Every once in a while, the launcher even forgets if I want the default launcher or Launcher EX.
