    WOW!! did you all see that preview movie on the streetdeck website. I think we should adopt some of that functionality as well If thats not inspiration for RR skinners/coders i don't know what is.

    I think most people attribute this to god_of_cpu.

    nvr mind, i found it.

    i wasnt really feeling the "look" of it at all (the skin)esp the main menu, but the functions seemed very cool. I like the gestures thing, maybe the car is the perfect place for gestures cuz i never liked it on desktop pc's. I also like how the transitions and slide in/out effects (ive secretly wanted this in RR for a while). GPS looks cool, but i dont like mappoint, but this is the best ive seen done with map point. Some of the UI reminds me too much of MCE, like the photo screen, and audio player. But overall it seems pretty cool, just not feeling the ui.

    The overall look of the skin wasn't that good, I don't like skins cluttered with buttons, they're too messy for good use in a car imo. The gesture thingie was awesome, unfortunately I have no idea how to add something like that to RR.

    I agree good implementation of MapPoint but I thought it had some pretty big negatives to it; such as the snap to road, automatic re-routing, looks like they figured out rotating maps literally (streetnames upside down).

    The gesture thing has been around for years. Just google for StrokeIt.

    I personally don't like it at all for the simple reason that it will kill my touchscreen in no time.
