Recommended Font Ends

I loaded Centrafuse as my front end because that's what everyone else has and works pretty well, but I'm frustrated by the lack of GPS support we have for Australia. I've been considering trying out Road Runner, but this doesn't look as simple to load and upgrade.

Anyone had any experience with other front ends?

I have downloaded roadrunner, frodoplayer, and centrafuse.

So far CENTRAFUSE is the winner. It has a terrific GUI, almost everything works (but its still in testing stages), and it does it without loading ugly plugins.

ROADRUNNER was a decent enough frontend, and if you have experience in programming, it would be a great option as its completely open source. I found it a bit ugly for my liking, and it was far more complicated than it had to be.

FRODOPLAYER - the name pisses me off, and i never actually managed to get it working, but i've heard good things about it.

... so basically centrafuse is the way to go as far as im concerned. it has ability to do everything i want in an attractive fashion.

oh and about the GPS support - david from flux (creators of centrafuse) has confirmed that when the official release of centrafuse comes out (and yes, you will have to pay), you can buy working australian maps.

thats probably the most frustrating part: that we have to buy the software soon, but its served me well so i'm willing to pay.

yeah I don't mind paying, I saw on mp3car.com that they have worked out a deal with Destinator to include maps... but I want it NOW :lol::lol::lol:

I looked into Frodoplayer and Road Runner, but most looked to complicated and I don't want to read crap in windows installing pluging if I don't have to. The skins that some of the guys have working with each look awesome though...

sweet ill have to grab RC5... i never got RC4, but i read that it had a few more annoying bugs than RC3...

This front end hasn't crashed on me since RC1, so i'm pumped for the official release... let's hope its not too expensive, but if it comes with maps, im sure it will be...
