    The streetdeck standard installation comes with an option for the T3. I used that one.

    Nevertheless, I gave up on mappoint's directions and not just because it keeps crashing SD (although I have to admitt that is the big reason I am not using it anymore); the two minutes that it does work are enough to realize that the MapPoint SDK wasn't designed for in car computing. The routing algorithm doesn't take in consideration the direction that you are driving and re-calc time is so slow, that by the time it finishes, it is already invalid in some common cases. It seems the MS guys haven't modified Dijkstra's algorithm enough to make it usable for this kind of environment. If I were SD, I would either:

    - Hope that the MS guys get their stuff together for Mappoint 2008 and live with the crappiness of their routing results for a few more years (kind of dangerous to do this from a business perspective - but may be considered cost effective for some).

    - Start looking for a new SDK (maybe contact iGuidance and see if they can make a deal).

    Something tells me they are going with the 1st option.

    Anyway,

    This very topic has already been discussed in great detail on this forum.

    We are working on a new SDK for navigation.

    Then my guess was erroneous; it is #2
