    so what are the main differences between v1 and v2?
    Do improvements overweight the lack of nav in EU?
    Will we be able to run v2, but switch to v1 when we need nav?

    Chuck, thank you for your posts. (Final MP3car team rant) I can honestly say I trust your word much more then FO's for 1 simple reason, its your baby from the start and actually care about the app. FO could care less if it dried up and died and proved that to us. I have 0 issues paying an upgrade fee just like I had no issues paying the initial price...As long as there is constant support, updates and my money is going to the team actually working on the product.

    For the most part the current SD does everything I need, the only thing I am looking forward to with a new app is.

    Navigation enhancements
    -Easier button to multiple routes to a specific location, like an eclipse head unit does.

    -Add current location to favorites.

    -POI'S!!! I have been saying this for a year. Allow me to sit in my driveway and download working google POI's or something for 5 hours so I don't have to ever download one again.

    There is no reason for someone with a stock Ford Focus to have a better working Navigation then us using SD lol.
    -Oh and did I mention, working POI's?!

    Other minor stuff..
    -A gesture shortcut to "playlist" by default, I still cant make custom gestures to save my life, I gave up on that after 20 minutes feeling like an idiot.

    -Select a song and "move to top" hitting "move up" 450 times is one of the most annoying parts of SD.

    -More stable video playback.

    -Auto play next video in your my video folder.

    -Make sure you keep -testmode in v2!


    Thanks chuck, hope to hear from you soon.

    There is an option to calculate the 4 different supported route types at once and display them on screen at the same time.

    POIs are substantially better. I don't think you be disappointed with the number and accuracy of them.

    THere will be several ways to add new locations to favorites include the current GPS position.

    Other minor things... Once support for V1 is under control and V2 is released these could be addressed, but not before then.

    There really is no V2 european option yet. When we are able to license the data and do it right, I'll talk about european V2, but until then I don't want create the impression that we have a V2 european option.

    Primarily the big thing will be nav. There are bunch of small enhancments like better vista support, and battery meter for laptops, and a few UI changes like an always visible clock.

    V1 skins will be semi usable. In theory they should work, but you may not have some access to some features if the new addtions to 2.0 conflict with things in your skin.
