    I enjoy my SD I just don't enjoy the support or lack of. My SD is running stable but thats easy to accomplish when you abandon the software with lack of updates. As of right now I am happy with my SD but would enjoy some updates/fixes. I refuse to move over to CF for the simple fact that mp3car was pushing SD I purchased it, they ditch it now are pushing CF. I refuse to buy a 2nd frontend simply because they decided to leave it out to dry. Hopefully we hear some good news this week, it's not like this stuff is freeware, we are all paying customers.

    I have SD and had no problem using it this long weekend. was stable and didnt crash. windows did but not sd i was doing some windows tweaking lol. But yea, for the people that say theres too much crap on the screen, there skins that you can take off what you dont want like tv, xm if you dont use it, all that stuff. There some pretty tight skins check them out on the skins section.

    Yeah, I like the StreetDeck interface. At the moment, SD has the best navigation system of the front ends in terms of presentation. Works even better when your carPC is hooked up to the Internet through your phone.

    SD's GUI is outstanding. Features are now being matched by other products, but nothing is perfect yet. Can CF record XM? Navigate using satellite imagery?

    Support or lack thereof is a biggie no question. Really not sure why they would cut end users off prematurely regardless of what is happening in the shop - but hopefully, one day, we'll know...

    CF can record XM, no on the satellite imagery yet. That would be a nice addition.

    The most important thing I need is nav -- and it looks like both SD and CF's nav is rather lacking. I decided to go with iGuidance and am simply writing the other features I need on top of that.

    I've already got speed-controlled volume, music that syncs with my home playlist server, and a reverse camera.

    But I really do appreciate all the advice and comments I've received in this thread. Thanks!
