I dunno why you guys would expect anything more from these jokers. They are happily spending our money, and we all know that we sure as hell aren't going to see a free upgrade to 2.0. I can't even get them to reply about getting DVD functionality to work in Vista.
I also lost my hope to get bluetooth long ago! It's hard for me to try to imagine what's going on at streetdeck!
The last program update, which really changed or improved something was (I think) last summer!!
What have they done since last summer ??
I guess the have so much business cases and different customers (not only us freaks ;-)) like Intel and so on. And they don't really care about us.
We are just beta testers, who have actually payed for it.
I was impressed as I bought SD, but now I'm just wondering and disappointed.
And it's really laughable, when SD talks about version 2 *pfff*.
When they need 3 years just to make this usb thing working, they need probably 15 years for a new map engine!
And the main reason, why I'm angry with SD is, that they don't tell anything about their progress, problems, and current tasks.
I wouldn't worry too much about the future of SD. I'm optimistic (but still expecting slow progress). Mp3car.com is essentially interested in catering to the "pc-in-car" community, whether through its forums, its store, or streetdeck. Streetdeck is owned by mp3car but is somewhat of a separate entity. I'm not surprised at all that mp3car.com is selling Centrafuse. They're still making money off of it whether customers get SD or CF, and while SD is their baby, not once have I seen mp3car.com employees claim it is the standard and end all, be all for car pc frontends.
All in all, I have my own gripes with the poor communication/slow updates between mp3car.com employees and customers, but at the same time I can understand that they are a small company that is overwhelmed with requests and cannot handle it all at once.
From a business perspective, I can understand that they have to work with their big company connections, like Microsoft, Parrot, etc. in order to get R&D $ and integrate based on the needs of large companies. Oftentimes, it feels like the end user is getting shafted (sts), but I am optimistic that the trickle down effect will reach us eventually
