  • Auto-return to main screen

    Has anyone done anything to make this? I would like this feature, and I am not sure how to even start with it.

    Thanks

    How would this be useful? I usually select the music I want to hear, then input my nav destination or switch to the nav view while I'm driving. I wouldn't want SD to switch back from the nav view unless I told it to do so. I think most other users use SD in a similar fashion...but I could be incorrect. I think that automatically switching back to the nav view while the car is in motion might be more useful than switching back to the main screen.

    The option to automactially switch back to ANY user defined module after a period of inactivity might be the most useful feature of all...and would seem very easy to implement as a digital mod or as a feature of SD itself.

      Ok, I can agree with this....

      Maybe have it 'lock out' specific modules? so if you had NAV up, it wouldnt do the auto return?

      I havent used my setup much yet, (esp with nav) and I also dont see using nav alot for day to day driving.

        Ah...

        I like the nav eye-candy to display while I'm driving...even if I'm not actively using the nav at the time.

        Auto-return is a good idea though, and one I haven't seen suggested before. Perhaps you should repost your idea in the "ideas to improve SD" thread...it's somewhere in the main SD forum, and it would probably get more attention there.

          I guess I should explain the rest of what I hope to do

          I am planning on mounting a couple night-vision cams inside the 'burb, so the wife can see the kids as she drives. I was hoping to use the Subaru Skin, and overlay the cam image in place of the logo on the main screen only.

          Make sense now?

            I do the same thing as well but was wondering one thing. I like the album view only because of the gesture where you make a line across the screen skips to the next song. There is no way of doing this if you have an album playing but in nav view correct?

              It works in NAV for me... although I cant remember if its because I did it at the bottom where the song is listed.....

                It doesn't matter what module you're in. By default, the RIGHT gesture is mapped to the next track throughout StreetDeck
                Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                How about the Wiki?

                  ...and I believe that's true of any gesture in SD. Every gesture is pretty much global.
