I was able to get internet explorer running on this unit QL-RAV977.
Want to get google maps running to get traffic updates + email.

I want to do some software mods:
1. change desktop to iphonetoday http://code.google.com/p/iphonetoday/
2. get traffic from google maps
3. more apps

should I create new topic, or continue here?

How to get internet on QL-RAV977 using wifi point ( home or sprint phone with wifirouter installed)
1. I got this wifi
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110592012860
put drivers cab on SD card
2. get CECMD.EXE - filemanager , put on SD card.
3. on unit - menu -> files , click SD and "Other" , click on cecmd you will get filemanager, navigate to \windows, run explorer, you will get familiar windows interface
4. back to cecmd, navigate to storage card run drivers cab from wifi adapter. after that connect wifi adapter to any of 2 usb jacks, it will ask for wireless networks. check that you get connected - blue icon of network on taskbar
5. start->programs-> internet explorer

Problems:
1. after power off, when I connect wifi adapter - popup ask for driver name . have to reinstall again , to get rid of it
2. google maps is not working
3. tried to run opera mini/skyfire no luck

will continue to search for a way to run flash .

How to get iphonetoday:
1. download iPhoneToday-1.5.4-pnd.zip from http://code.google.com/p/iphonetoday/downloads/list
2. unzip on SD card
3. run CECMD ( I recommend to copy CECMD to unit - so you always will have it in "OTHER")
4. run iphonetoday.exe

Later I will try to replace manager.exe ( software that running all HU) with IPT, but first I have to update all icons/links for IPT to point to right programs.

Wow, gomelkiev, that's impressive.
Forgive my ignorance, but are you looking to change the interface or the functionality (or both?
I guess I don't know what 'iphonetoday' is (a theme?)

IPT ( iphonetoday) - is the just new interface/theme with much easier way to add new programs icons. in current interface ( manager.exe) almost no way to add new icon for new program, let say you want to have calculator ( for example) or new game.
in IPT it will take few seconds to add, in manager.exe - you have to get code and recompile. I couldn't find any config files that manager.exe is using.

functionality - will be much harder to do changes , b/c we don't know hardware, but windows CE 6.0 ( according to microsoft ) look very promising. so 1st I want to get internet in the car. I have sprint phone with wifirouter, so it works like wifi spot, so I am trying to get internet on the go. after that : email/ weather.

one more thing that I will try to look into, how ipod.exe ( program that controls ipod interface) is working. I have ipod32gb and ipad64gb and both are not working.
Ipod interface on the back has regualr 3.5mm connector(for audio) and 6 pin connector ( to charge ipod) . If I can't find a software way to charge/play music from my ipod/ipads, will try at least to use 3.5mm connector as AUX input.

Very Cool! I wonder, with software mods/hacks, is it possible to disable RDS? The fact that RDS constantly changes the radio preset names is the one thing holding me back from getting it.

this is one of my projects in the future - to disable RDS
couple ideas:
1. disable in software
2. strip RDS data from radio waves. build some kind filter that will block digital part of radio wave.

not good, only finds the mini sd. Had a look on internet but found nothing.
I am not a specialist and it is not a hot topic for me. would be nice if it worked.

I connected our samsung S3650 (corby) for charging (USB) and the system asked for a driver.!?
