    Fellas, fellas, come on... what F/E we use does not define who we are as a person, there's no need to defend it to the death with sword and shield in hand... to each his own, not a big deal.

    Daniel, to answer your question from page 1, I bought the 2nd tier version (the one with PhoCo, but without nav), and here's why. After downloading the trial version, I noticed that there was a plugin add-on called CFiG that allows you to use iGuidance within CF. Well imagine my excitement because I already owned a full licensed copy of iGuidance that I bought for my Pocket PC. Well when you buy the retail DVD of iGuidance, it includes three versions: Pocket PC, CarPC/UMPC, and laptop. Since I already knew I liked iGuidance, as long as the plugin worked well, I knew I'd be happy. Sure enough the plugin is very nice and works well with IGuidance. So knowing that, I just bought the XE version of CF and I've been good to go ever since. I've never used Destinator and know nothing at all about it so I have no idea if I would like it better or not. I do know that I like iGuidance better than Mappoint, but I admittedly also did not run into the same problems with Mappoint that other SD users did. I didn't have a big problem with it.

    Wouldn't it be a lot better if the user could choose to show extra function buttons in its place though?

    You can also always make a skin of your own - it just takes some photoshop know how and a bit of time, but it's fun

    I've never used Photoshop (or CF), but are you saying that you can use Photoshop to add a 3rd row of buttons in place of the CF logo?

    The "Integrated Climate Control" plug-in puts the buttons right in the middle, where the Centrafuse logo usually is.

    Don't ask me how they did it...I'm not a programmer, just a messenger...but, it looks very cool!

    I, like many others here, replaced the "Centrafuse" logo on the startup screen as well as the "Centrafuse" logo in the middle with a logo of my car's make (Lexus). Looks very sharp...very "factory". I also replaced the Windows XP boot screen, the desktop (that flashes momentarily during boot), and the "Welcome" screen with custom screens so there's no sign that I'm running Microsoft in my car.
    2003 Lexus SC430 - Black with Ecru. VaisTech & NavTool with Centrafuse integrated into factory nav screen (hands-free Bluetooth, Voice Command, mp3's, videos, HD Radio, Sirius Sat. radio, DVD, Internet, & digital gauges (via OBD-II)), & LuxLink module.

    He says he cheated and just forced the plugin to show up on top of the real estate where the logo is:
