    Has anyone let the BBB know what they think of streetdeck/mp3car? File a complaint here: https://odr.bbb.org/odrweb/public/GetStarted.aspx

    What a surprise, they have an unsatisfactory rating due to their failure to respond to a complaint.

    Streetdeck.com, About us.....

    StreetDeck.com was created in 2005 by the Mp3Car, Inc team. (est. 1996) Our mission is to create the best, safest in-car computing experience in the world. The StreetDeck software, a product of academic research and over four years of development, is the best open car-computing platform in existence. With it's innovative user interface, StreetDeck allows the driver to access digital media, hands-free mobile telephony, and navigation while keeping their eyes on the road. More and more people are installing computers to replace the functions of their car stereo system. However, there are unique challenges to getting a computer to work seamlessly in a car.
    My opinion is my own.

    Now wait a second......let's be fair here.

    Streetdeck the software? Love it. Better than any other front end out there.
    Streetdeck the company? A few spoiled hobbiest that don't have a clue how to be a real business. Get upset when you don't rave over their brilliance and scowl at any possible criticism.
    Streetdeck the creators? See above and add ego.

    Bottom line is, in some ways, I would like to see MP3Car lose Streetdeck. Yes, that is what would happen. Streetdeck would not disappear, it is too good at what it does. And because of that, there are others out there that would love to own the rights. People that understand the following:

    Bad Product, Bad Service, Bad Support:
    No customers

    Good product, Bad Service, Bad support:
    Me. I'm technical enough to fumble through and get it working, but not only would I not recommend the product, I would suggest that no one else buy it.

    Good product, good service, bad support:
    Me and possibly a friend that was technical. Still discourage everyone else.

    Good product, good service, good support:
    Me, my friends, my family, anyone on the street.

    See why I say exponential sales? The product does work good enough for recommendation now. But it would be a cold day in hades before I would put my reputation on the line by doing so.
    My opinion is my own.

    Not to say the gripes aren't unfounded danielkh.....I'm glad I didn't spend money to purchase all these problems but maybe they will turn it around.....and nobody better start a "Pathos must work for Streetdeck because he is too optimistic" thread either

    You know what I have found? Upgrades are the problems (ok, in all fairness, APPEAR to be the problem). I went through upgrade after upgrade and had problems show up and then more problems. Until streetdeck wouldn't even run for more than 10 minutes and shut down. Tried reverting to older versions and the next time it started up, it would automatically reload itself and fail. Even uninstalling and reinstalling the program wouldn't help. Was just about to give up and try roadrunner again, but then......

    Reformatted for other reasons and went straight to the latest and greatest and have not had a single problem. Absolutely love it! I think they have some (a) brilliant programmer, but either (t)he(y) is too arrogant to listen to anyone else, or they are too understaffed for a good serious quality control. Both are indicative of problems B and C listed above in my last post. The software guru's that I worked with? They got so arrogant that they sent out a lot of blank CD's. Why? Because it was "beneath them" to check the disks to see if the software actually copied. That was embarrassing as heck.

    No matter what is really going on there? We will come out the winner in the long run.
    My opinion is my own.

    I give them serious credit for actually posting as they said they would. Maybe no substance, but it was something. When you are expecting a technician out to your house for service, if they call and say they are running behind but will be there soon, that is a heck of a lot better than simply not calling. Hopefully they will have some substance in the next few days. Maybe it will be ditched, maybe they are up for sale. This could turn out very well. Maybe a deal in the works like Ford has with Sync/Microsoft. Who knows, luckily, I have a couple weeks to wait. Otherwise, I will simply use Vista media canter, and streets and trips for now until a good frontend shows itself. CR is ok, but definetly needs a lot of work still. RR is great, but time consuming. My time is worth way more than the headache.

    Keep in mind, even if they took SD and threw it in the trash (very unlikely), it would still continue to function on your computer. Or were you the one still waiting for registration code?
