How can I make Streetdeck on my Infill G4 not know it is on the Infill G4, and what functionality will I lose if I do so?
I know one function I will gain is the ability to manually toggle night mode via the U gesture, something that I need to be able to do on my return trip to Austin. I'll be driving on highways I never have before, and having the navigation in day mode when driving down unlit highways was very unsafe as the day mode was enough to wreck my night vision. Unfortunately due to the design of my car and the Infill G4, the automatic switching does not work.
When you install StreetDeck from the DVD, there is an option to load the Infill drivers and such at install time.
The only thing I can think of is uninstall StreetDeck and reinstall it without the Infill stuff.
You'd lose FM radio, as Marassa stated. GPS might not work. If the G4 has a TV Tuner, that wouldn't work. The GPS might not work. The control of the screen tilt would go bye-bye.
Why would you want SD without the Infill stuff?
There is no possible way that you can not hook the illumination wire to the parking lights wire in your car to get this function to work on the G4, but if you don't want to go through the trouble, here is a small digitalmod that might be what you are looking for.
Thanks IandI, I'll try it out.Originally Posted by IandI
Well, I'm back home, but still curious how to do this for future trips. As expected, the unit was just too bright to be used at night. To get back, I used my friends Tom Tom unit, and it really exposed some other rough spots in Streetdeck. I'll be typing up something hopefully in the next week with a bunch of suggestions on things I think would greatly help StreetDeck improve.
