Not knowing anything about all of the Ipods and Icelinks and what not that's out there.

Do any of them actually put the ID tags on the RNS-E screen? Is it even possible?

What about this, would this be possible if the Ipod (or even possibly the Phatbox) was ran thru a CANbus box that translated the signals to the RNS-E?

Is someone here capable of making a box like that?

It is not possible. The RNS-E is not set up to recieve and display data for such a device... unless you completely custom make a video interface that can be used while in TV mode. Something like what Dirk was working on with his CAR PC project.

and with the (max 100 gigabyte!) Phatnoise, you get the ID-tags played back via voice! this works very good!

Actually you can get a 160gb! I've got a 100gb right now, but I'm about to buy a 160gb and put it in the DMS.

I picked up one of those VW phatnoise units that everybody snatched up on sale some time ago. sitting at home in a box right now - may have to dust it off and figure out how to install.

@todd1010: I see the maximum is now 120Gb (US$ 399), where did you find the 160Gb and at what price??

@sfoperator: better go to install it, it is awesome! :D

ah, that is very good news..........it really took a few years to accomplish this "hack", but I understand July 26 was the day these guys did it! Or was this already in 2005 and I was sleeping because I gave up (when the official Phatnoise forum went down last year)? ;-)
