    StreetDeck-worth the $ ?

    Hi everyone

    Im just wondering if Streetdeck is worth the money...
    And also, what you guys think about Centrafuse XLE

    For no i'm using inCar treminal frontend with S&t 2007(which sux) for a carputer.

    So before I invest some money it would be nice to know your opinions.

    Thank you

    The only person than can determine if it's worth the money is you.

    If someone tries to tell you otherwise, I'd be weary.

    Only you know what will fit your needs. Only you know what you expect out of a piece of software. Only you know how you expect to use your CarPC.

    I'd suggest downloading the demo of streetdeck and the demo of centrafuse if they have one and comparing the two yourself.

    I have to say there is one thing for them... I think CF is more EU friendly on the GPS side where as SD is more US....

    That been said they both support XM but neither support DAB

    How about DBCS (doubt-byte character system)? I remember reading in the StreetDeck forum a few months ago that the current version of StreetDeck doesn't support it, but future versions will....

    This kind of thing is important for anyone who has Asian language stuff... usic, videos, files, etc. on your PC. Adding support for it isn't a killer... it just requires thinking about it during the planning/design stage.

    Have a look at Roadrunner... the abundance of resources for it is far better than any other frontend.
    Setup:
    Dynaudio 240GT
    PPI PC4100, PPI PC2350
    Zapco DSP6
    ADS DAC
    Testing new board (Albatron KI690-AM2)

    I'm pretty happy with SD. The nav software is not the best (Mappoint 2006), but I don't use it for nav all that much. The best thing about SD is that it is incredibly easy to make it look exactly the way you want it to. Skinnability is very, very easy.

    Overall, I am happy with my purchase.
