    Can do better

    Have they addressed the Bluetooth Hands-free profile echo cancellation issue? If not then any kind of purchase or upgrade is a definite NO from me.

    On the other hand it could have been a bit more worth it if only they'd used a better GPS Navigator engine. Destinator 6 is absolutely rubbish(routing in particular) here in the UK. It probably works fine in the US, but no improvement on that side either means that I'll be sticking to Igo8 until they come up with something decent.

    No, uhm, actually, it's just as bad in North America. GMPC with a plugin is a fantastic solution for N/A otehr than it has been discontinued. For first time CFer's, save the money on the non Nav version and buy something better.

    Yes lots of issues have been remedied with Bluetooth in this release. I suggest you download the trial and give it a test run. Assuming all your hardware is in order, you will be happy with the results.

    Here is the full email we've sent out


    New Europe maps are here!

    Also, as promised, the brand new 2010 maps for Europe are now here. There is a 30 day grandfather pricing in place, so if you think you should be eligible check the UPGRADE MAPS link on your account page, and if you have questions please contact us.



    Here are the major changes with 3.5:



    Centrafuse Market - We're pleased to announce the inclusion of Centrafuse Market with the 3.5 release. This represents a major step forward for Centrafuse and its ever-growing developer community. The benefits to this new built-in app store are many-fold. First, we were able to remove some of the lesser used plugin apps from the Centrafuse base install which makes for a more modular and lightweight installer with a smaller memory footprint and quicker load times. If you find yourself without something like OBD-II or Email, or need support for a particular radio, just open up the Market browser and download it.



    Secondly, the Centrafuse Market streamlines and standardizes how plugin apps are created, deployed and updated. This means as a developer, you can quickly and easily push updates out to your users, avoiding the hassle of relying on detailed instructions, minimizing end-user install issues. Developers will be notified with instructions to sign up to submit Market applications later this week.



    The next phase of the Market will allow PAY-FOR apps, allowing developers to set prices, which we feel will bring a much broader selection of apps as we attract more developers to the Centrafuse developer community. This is planned tentatively for release with the 3.6 update.
