    That was one of the biggest reasons I bought Streetdeck. Are we going to lose them? Maybe going with googlemaps this time? hmmmmm? Hint maybe?

    I know this isn't your problem, but do you know if the onevoice plugin will work on 2.0? Will we even need it?

    Caelric, what the hell is up with that Avatar?? You know what I mean.
    Voice will not be upgraded. There no changes to the SDK that should prevent it from working. I have not talked to onevoice in months and don't know what the status is right now.

    The new navigation engine will allow background imagery to be overlaid.

    satmaps: OH YEAH!

    Onevoice: They have released the beta, but it's not doing great in a mobile environment. Works perfectly sitting still though. Pretty impressive on a benchtest.

    One Voice Streetdeck Plugin Update
    My opinion is my own.

    What would the new maps cover?
    I guess for sure USA and also Canada.
    What about us weirdos in Europe? Will we be covered? If yes, then what part of Europe?
    I figure this will be an important piece of information when we decide to use SD 2.0 or take another path.
    If I donīt remember it. It never happened

    What do you need maps for? Can't you throw a rock from one end of the country to the other?

    I live in Norway. We probably could do so form the westcoast towards east. But then we could risk hit the swedes and get them pi(ss)ed. LOL

    Regarding throwing rocks from north to south, we have to get out of the car to pick up that rock and trow it again and again and again. The further up you get its getting frikin cold.



    Just cuoriuos on what to come.

    Yes, USA and Canada.

    Europe is not in the road map right now, but we are working on getting evaluation data for us to start testing on it.

    Not the answer I hoped for. But thanks Chuck.
    I guess SD 2.0 will be out of the question for me then . Untill Europe-maps shows up that is.

    Uhm, could I run both my current verison and 2.0? Would love to test it and all the new cool stuff.

    Welcome back GOC! Thank you for the candid answers to our questions. I am excited and optimistic about the new direction in which you are taking Streetdeck. I just have a quick question...

    I know this is a small carrot, but is there any chance that we will be able to get Streetdeck to work with the indashpc.com car2pc adapter, either internally in the software or via digitalmod? This is something that (...not a huge coder here...) seems like it wouldn't be too difficult code-wise, and would complete the "eyes on the road" experience for me, and I presume for many other customers. I know you created a mod a while ago for it, but it seemed to only work with the car2pc simulator, not the actual hardware. Btw...I'd be more than happy to purchase the hardware for you in order to get it working.

    Thank you again for your feedback. It's great to hear from you again, and I wish you the best of luck in the coming years.

    Nice to hear SD is still alive.
    About this new nav engine... will we be able to use sat images from the web? If yes, witch ones (google, live, yahoo, ...), or will more of them be available to choose from? I would prefer google, because only google shows most accurate streets where i live, and has best sat images.

    So, what happens to us EU users now? If we upgrade to v2 we loose the nav, or will at least the old one still work? When are you planning to include EU in v2?

    A great feature would be to adjust the car icon size, so you could get it the same size as the cars in the sat images.
    Another great feature (but more complex) would be to have real 3D nav. So you could see the hills higher, etc (like in google earth)

    Is there going to be any GUI difference between v1 and v2?

    Yes, there will be a plugin for virtual earth only.

    EU users will lose nav if they upgrade. They can continue to use V1. There are no firm plans for Europe. We have to be successfull with NA before we can make further navigation data commitments to our vendor.

    No, this will not be possible. The icon will be sized automatically based on your zoom level.

    Yes that is a great feature. It has not been implmented nor is it in the roadmap.

    Yes, structurally minor, visually significant.
