    Application Objective - To bring an unbeatable stability at lightning speed, independent from today’s Operating Systems and car PCs hardware configurations. Maestro PRO is created with passion, aiming to set the new standards in Automotive Computing.

    Unbeatable stability at lightning speed - Being really Automotive, Maestro Pro is reliable, professionally written application created by the most talented Bulgarian software engineers. All time-critical algorithms, functions and communication between different modules have been written entirely in assembler.

    True platform independence - Maestro Pro could run on all Microsoft 32 bits Operating Systems (Windows 95 and above), Linux/UNIX- and it goes even further - it can be used without any OS. For example - you can boot directly from a memory card and you’re directly in Maestro. Forget about those boring Operating Systems’ problems and long boot process.
    Downloaded but didn't install. Maestro Pro may be OS-independent, but the free version 2 is definitely NOT. Here are some of the release notes:

    The following prerequisites must be installed before the installation of CNS Maestro:
    · Windows XP Professional + SP1
    · DirectX SDK 9.0b
    · Windows Media Player 9
    · .NET Framework 1.1
    The following prerequisites are not required, but different features of Maestro will not work if they are missing:
    · TV Tuner driver (PixelView)
    · FM Tuner driver and Radiator (1.8 or later).
    · Destinator v2 (For the navigation)
    · Bluetooth drivers and Nokia 6210 (will work with other phones but is not tested yet)
    · Codecs for Media Player. The stable set of codecs which is tested to work is AC3 Codecs, DivX codecs and XVid codecs.

    I think I'll pass.

    Hi guys,

    it looks like our download link got 'red' & crazy, handling more than 100 simultaneous downloads. As we would like to bring a comfortable download to you we have just added 6 download mirrors for international visitors.

    I'd like to apologize for any inconvenience the slow download might have caused to you.

    br,
    Svetoslav

    Well , I took a few minutes to try the software out. I was able to install and register without a hitch. The download did take a little bit of time but since the addition of the new mirrors I was able to get the download completed in about 10 minutes.

    First off I want to thank the authour for providing another free in car solution to the community as each project adds another dimension to our software possibilities.

    what that being said my personal thoughts on this software is that it shows alot of promise of becoming a good option for anyone looking for a in-car solution. As of now with the current version the program feels as as if it were still in very early Beta phase and was still being developed.

    Moving forward I think the company should evaluate their list of promises, and provide a more flexable setup utility that would be able to embrace a more wide group of users.

    Just my 2 cents
    -S

    Scorp, you've summed it up perfectly.

    I too did the D/L, install and Reg. without a hitch and was pleased with the look of the product but it is just not ready for mainstream. With enough time and thought it could really be a hit, keep up the good work Svetoslav.

    Going to test it later tonight.. Made a (dutch) mirror too, since i was getting only 70k/sec from the fastest server I could find.

    http://www.xs4all.nl/~mozteke/maestro_e_2004.zip

    (XS4All, The Netherlands, just tested it and got about 4Mb/sec, but file too small to test it ok)


    The screenshots do look very good, and it looks like its perfec for lazy ppl like me who want to have it all, without having to take care about all kind of programs and frontends.

    I'm sure i'm going to test it, and let my experiences know with it.

    Hi guys,

    About the problem starting the application....

    Please check that your systems match the minimum system requirements.
    You need:
    Windows XP Professional SP1 or SP2
    Direct X 9.0b
    Windows Media Player 9
    .Net Framework 1.1

    If the problem still occures, please send a copy of your config file (maestro.exe.config) located in your Maestro folder (usualy C:\Program Files\CNS Inc\CNS Maestro) to [email protected]

    br,
    Svetoslav
