    Should I Switch from Road Runner (11/5/07) to the new Ride Runner?

    I have been away from the forum for awhile. I've been using RR for years and my last installed version is RR (11/5/07) using DFX 2.0. It still works fine for what I use it for (MP3,Video,GPS) but I'm going to be using the car more so I'm looking at adding more features (OBDII,Radio,ETC....).

    I think the release I'm using was around the time Ride Runner was starting and there were talks of mandatory updates and time bombs, so with things working good for me I didn't see a need to update.

    I've been browsing here a few days and even installed RR 9/1/11 on my desktop and it looks like a TON of progress has been made. The new DFX 5.0 looks amazing as well.

    So....What are the Pros and Cons of updating to the new Ride Runner?

    Thank you,
    Jay

    why not keep your old install & then install the new so you can compare without giving up what you already have? as long as it's in a different directory I think you should be able to keep both

    what he said isnt 100% true!

    a side by side install might seem to work, but alot will fail
    the common components since 2007 to 2011 (long time you know)
    have changed
    and just running old rrconfig, will mess up com registration

    see old programs like this (vb6 with COM components) are a side by side nightmare (.dll hell)

    just go new, its 2011 already, so many hundreds of improvedments and bug fixes since 2007

    I'd say why not give FreeICE a try.. lol but then I would. With movable widgets and a lovely flash frontend it's breathtaking (ok maybe a little o.t.t).. sorry what was that? where do you get it.. well on mp3car.com of course. It's even got it's own section and the thread to Alpha 4 is right here - http://www.mp3car.com/freeice/149182...alpha-4-a.html

    Alpha 5 is due out in a couple of days with lots of editions :-) I might even add a couple more widgets for good measure.. like how far am I from home widget that updates every minute.

    O.. and if you don't fancy to much of a change then defo upgrade your RR. It's got a hell of a lot more bling now :-)

    I can live with a hijacked thread as long as we can persuade Cdr to skin back for RR
