    Which front end will work for me?

    Howdy All

    I decided on a Screen and a Computer.

    I think

    I am thinking about a 8 inch screen and a mac mini for my 05 Pontiac Grand am.

    I will be running windows to run my sound system off of....

    So here is what im looking for in a front end....

    Navigation
    Ob2 diagnostics
    Media
    Video
    Radio
    Internet
    weather
    traffic
    and
    temp

    I have Tried Streetdeck, Centerfuse, and Roadrunner....

    Out of all of them I liked the Streetdeck because of the hand Gestures But I also Like Centerfuse....

    I want something that is easy to customize to the way I want it to look and something that is easy use....

    So what do yall guys recommend?

    Not Really I cant Decide Between Streetdeck and Centerfuse....

    Or is there another Frontend I should look at?

    Would a 10 inch screen look goofy in a car?

    No one can make that decision for you. That's something you're gong to have to decide on your own.

    A 10" screen only looks goofy in some cars. Again, that's something you'll have to decide based on the dash of your car.

    Seriously though...
    Are you planning on mounting that screen inside the dash? I would recommend a 7" so it fits in where the stock head unit is.

    I would suggest installing all 3 together and try them. That is what I did.
    Streetdeck and Centrafuse have trial downloads. Roadrunner of course is free. I find myself switching between Roadrunner and Centrafuse. Just as stated above, it is best for you to decide that.
