    Standalone SB/iPeng-like functionality for iPhone (or I guess Android)?

    I've got a Squeezeplug set up at the house serving to a SB Touch, a couple headless pi's, and sometimes the iPhone, and I control everything with iPeng. I love it.

    I'd like to be able to use the same or a similar interface totally offline by loading a few gigs onto my iPhone and . . . i dunno what. Can I run a local "squeezeplug"/Logitech Media Server on my iPhone?

    What I'm really after is how to get a similar experience in the car as I have at the house in terms of searching for and playing music.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, itĺs still on my to-do-list for iPeng but with all the other stuff that has higher priority right now (like iPhone X redesign) it wonĺt be soon

    Some have built Pi based LMS with wi-fi hotspot for use in the car i.e. the Pi tucked away somewhere with control from iPeng connected via the hotspot. Have a gander through the Linux forum for a howto
    Pi3 with piCoreplayer music on QNAP TS419p via NFS iThingys/iPeng/Tablets/Jogglers
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 - > Celestion Ditton F20s
    Office - Pi -> Sony TA FE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN 755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - SB Touch -> Topping TP21 -> AKG Headphones

    I have a portable LMS built on a wifi enabled 2Tb WD MyPassport drive. It's a backup of the main copy of my music library. I guess that could be run as a server in a car, streaming to iPeng or similar on a phone.

    If you plan to go this way (or similar) but use an Android device and still want to have data access on your device: make sure to have at least Android 7 (Nougat) on it, as that finally allows you to connect simultaneously to a wifi network and your 4G data connection.
    Main System: Touch; Marantz SR-5004; TMA Premium 905; TMA Premium 901; BK Monolith+ FF; HDI Dune Smart D1; Pioneer PDP-LX5090H
    Workshop: iPad 32GB Wifi + Squeezepad (local playback activated)
    Wherever needed: Acer Iconia Tab A700 + Squeezeplayer
    Car: BananaPi LMS + Squeezeplayer on Android phone - Controller TBD ...
