    Thanks much,

    Ok, Good News: StreetDeck 2 will be cheaper, will include a new navigation engine, will have several other minor enhancments but not much else.

    Bad News: StreetDeck 2 will not have bluetooth support. We don't have a license to the bluetooth support and probably won't be able to afford one for some time.

    All right - thanks for the news

    What happens to those who have the beta bluetooth piece installed and working? Will v2 allow us to continue using it?

    Do Streetdeck 1 owners get upgraded free? (you might want to answer that privately lol)
    Or at a serious discount? (that one you could answer publicly MAYBE )
    My opinion is my own.

    Forgive me for being the grouch, but after the silent treatment for, oh, say six months, I will have to see some positive results (more than just some forum postings), before I am again satisfied with SD. A new patch will go a long ways towards that, as will continued support and news/updates.

    This isn't good news at all.

    Basically, it sounds like phone support "coming soon" is being dropped, no word about traffic, or other "coming soon" features, and "full version" users will have to pay an upgrade fee - how in the world does anybody consider that good news?

    Streetdeck, Mp3car, digitalwheelz, whatever has treated their customers like crap. Actually, worse than that. 6 months of "trust us, we'll tell you something soon", and really I'm not suprised you guys are trying to pass the plate around again.

    Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

    The money that your customers paid was for a fully functional product - not empty promises. This is more of the same crap.

    If these guys actually follow through now that the pi$$ing contest is over, it means....

    1. Open to multiple hardware choices while maintaining the look and feel of streetdeck.
    2. Getting away from navigation software (hopefully) that will not take you off the freeway......just to put you right back on.
    3. Support for more "volunteer work" on getting even more features added.

    May not be the best news, but it's better than "streetdeck is dead". As for the upgrade fee, decent navigation stuff isn't free on any frontend.

    Edit: I was going to try and NOT ask this, but are we going to lose our Satmaps on the new nav system?
    My opinion is my own.

    Look at it this way - paying even more money, and not even getting the features that were orignally promised is pretty stupid, don't you think?

    So now I'm supposed to be excited because this is going to be some kind of open-source project (only not free, but just somehow magically developers are going to start to develop for it?)

    And oh yeah, just wait another 30 days for the first updates... I'll believe it when I see it.
