  • Clock & others

    I've been waiting for the update, but I was wondering if the clock was going to be a standard thing on all the different screens.

    Also when in navigation mode, can the volume be added as well as and ETA? I thought the last screen had the ETA but it keeps showing either 30 mins off, but the time goes down... doesn't make sense... if that makes sense.

    Why do you think somebody wants to have a clock on the screen all the time and waste display space, when 99% have a clock in the car??
    I don't know why you not, but do you seriously expect them to change this only for you, to make you happy and all others frustrated??

      Considering that it can be added by altering your skin, I think this one is entirely up to you.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        I've been using centrafuse for awhile now and I'm use to the clock. And my clock in my car was replaced when I put the pc in so thats why. I'm just asking a question, no need to jump down my throat about it.

        I was looking at trying to make my own skin, but haven't had the time to play around with it. Can the Volume button be added to the navigation screen with skinning?

        What about the ETA in the navigation. In iguidance it shows you what time you will arrive and I find it extremely useful. Maybe my trial of SD just is messed up?

          It could be made an option in the settings. and off by default. i want the same feature... but cannot use the development tool as the reason I bought this software was because I am not tech savy.

            This is a feedback forum, hopefully used to convey feature requests to SD devs. Let's not hassle people for wanting to use SD in a specific fashion, even if it may be a "quick" programming fix.

            I wouldn't have paid for StreetDeck if I wanted to "code" tweak my front end.

              If it doesnt get added I am sure if asked nicely in the skins section someone would knock you up a skin with the clock on each screen. (If i get chance over the next few months il give it a go)

                Since when is locating elements on a graphic overlay considered "coding"?

                  Its not going to be in the default skin because it takes up too much space.

                    In SD's defense, it is probably the easist front end to change the skins. Watch the tutorial (all of 18 mins long), play with the Dev Enviroment for about 15 mins, and you can be an expert at skinning SD. It is suprisingly easy, and it is the main reason I am sticking with SD despite some other complaints I have about it.

                    Anyways, once the next version comes out, I'll look into skinning a clock into it.

                      Hmm, I didn't find this to be the case. I fired up the dev mode and it looked pretty complicated (I'm a Network SysAdmin, not a prorammer). Guess I should watch the tutorial again and give it another try.

                      In my mind, anything that is not in options/settings, but where you have to enter "dev" mode to tweak, is closer to "coding". Know what I mean?

                      Just the same, as I say above, I will give skinning another try. If not, the clock suggestion (and any other user skinable requests) may be best double posted in General as a feature request for devs, in case enough folks request the same, AND in the skinning forum.

                      Thanks for the suggestions guys.

                        Well, I said it was the easiest. I didn't mean it was easy, just that it is orders of magnitude easier than skinning the other front ends I have tried.

                        However, it is not that hard. If you are computer literate (and as a sysadmin, I hope you are!), then once you watch the tutorial, you should have no problems at all. If you do have questions, feel free to ask.

                          So, after all this discussion about wanting a clock...how easy it is...has anyone developed a skin or a digimod? There seems to be a lot of posts with people ASKING for a clock option throughout SD, but I haven't seen any posts of them finding what they were looking for.

                            you dont need a digitalmod for the clock.. its very straightforward to add to the skin.. by modding the skin...

                            but it DOES take up space..

                              Thanks, I realize that you dont need a mod, but a mod would allow you to have a cloak without having to give up so much space. Perhaps even a gesture that would display the time. I've never created a skin and wouldn't honestly know where to begin with a digital mod, but if no one has already worked up a solution/alternative then I might take on working up a skin when Christmas break rolls around.
