Ok guys maybe alittle 2 faced here after the carry on i held about refunds etc , in the this is rediculace thread , but , i had only just installed SD and was annoyed that it didnt support phone yet , and felt ripped off , now i know you guys have been waiting for phone for over a year , but.....
Having used sd for a week now , i am really impressed! music is easy to find etc and with pending voice control from one voice.... will be amazing , i have used the Navagation module , and it has found every address i have put into it , and got me there no problems , i am in scotland , so maybe the maps are better for here ?
But overall SD gets a big thumbs up! from me , and insted of looking for all the negatives atm , i will enjoy it for what it gives me just now , and look forwards to the improvents as they come .
and if SD is looking for a european beta tester , fire em to me lol!
Yes, SD is by far the best front end on the market right now but is lacking some features advertised from the beginning. Give me bluetooth phone support and possibly real time traffic and I would be very happy.
I bought it with what it can do, not what it was advertised it might do, sometime, in the future, but we don't know if or when.
It looks good and has a well integrated frontend, any other enhancements are a bonus.
Only real "problem" I've had so far, is that I can't make digital mods or skins since I can't get streetdeck developer to run on my computer at all.
This isn't really fair, since I am not running windows as my base OS, but because of the DirectX (I think, its some form of 3D rendering filter, don't remember offhand) wine/VMWare/Xen doesn't work. Yes, I have tried installing the VMWare 3D drivers, and OpenGL is enabled in my stock base.
I have StreetDeck too, and I got bluetooth phone support working. Unfortunately my phone does not support headset, but at least I get a message when someone is calling. I don't know why this module is not distributed with StreetDeck in the first place.
I have 2 carputers with streetdeck, One is infill G4 - THE BEST carputer ever, and Lilliput TC-1000 - THE WORST!!! carputer ever, infill g4, had a StreetDeck bluetooth driver, so I thought why don't I copy it to Lilliput TC-1000 and try using it with built in CSR bluetooth. I did, and now it works PERFECTLY! I had some issues with windows, freezing to "death" during start-up, which I assume was because of a StreetDeck driver, but somehow, right now, it does not freeze!
I am as well very satisfied with StreetDeck, and I think that is the best program designed for SAFE-in car computer use. "Speed" module probably saved my life from accidents many times, not letting me go on msn while driving at 100 km/h on the highway. Gesture control is very useful, you don't have to get destructed from driving trying to find the "next" button. Unlike other programs that I used(, like RoadRunner, Centrafuse,) StreetDeck is the most user-friendliest, and that is what gives it the most value.
I like that in Centrafuse there is a Web, phone, and e-mail integration, but other than that, it takes a lot of time to figure out how to use it.
RoadRunner... I don't even want to talk about it. It's like talking about linux, it's good that it's free, but there is a manual as thick as bible that comes with it.
Only problems that I faced with StreetDeck were crashes after updates, which I learned how to fix (by simply removing StreetDeck folder from My Documents, and reinstalling the update with original StreetDeck CD inserted).
P.S. If you need these files (drivers) which make it possible to use phone support with streetdeck with any csr bluetooth hardware, send me an e-mail.
yeah thanks for info , give us some details
