    Great seeing you back Chuck!!! If the new nav engine supports overlays in the same or similar way that v1 does why can't we put a plug in together that downloads the tiles for traffic data in the same way the Virtual Earth cacher downloads satelite data?

    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.
    Just a few thoughts while you guys are hard at work on the nav system, you can take it or leave it. Have you guys thought about or would be at all possible to add support to search for POIs on your current route or near your destination, rather than your current location. Also to display your favorite destinations as a "push-pin" on the map.

    You can search around your current location, destination, or a place picked on the map.

    Favorites are not visible on the map. Searching for POIs around the route also won't be there at the initial release.

    Is it possible to run both V1 and V2 at the same time?
    If so then I would sure want to test it. And possibly stick with SD in the future. But with no nav possibillity, I will have to look somewhere else. I really would hate turning away from SD.

    Im among those in Europe.
    If/when you are making an Europe version, Ill be more than happy to Beta-test it if needed.
    If I dont remember it. It never happened

    If you install V2 to a different location and change the application data path, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work, but I haven't tried it.

    Chuck is there any type of ETA for a v1 update or even v2? I am literally dying over here to try out the new navi. Just give us a general date so I can sit and wait patiently

    First the website has to get finished which should happen by the 28th. We will post the latest V1 version and ask for any outstanding bugs to be reported again on the new website and make fixing them the priority.

    I can't commit to any V2 release date other then definitly this year and we know longer have a V1 revenue stream coming in so it is very much in our interest to get it out ASAP.

    Chuck,

    What happened to the download links for Bluetooth drivers and release versions in the private tester forum? I need them again and both links are deceased. I know you're not supporting Bluetooth now, I just need the old stuff.

    Thanks!

    this is ridiculous

    You're not being very "coy" in your actions. Although I am very interested to see what happens.
    My opinion is my own.

    Talking SD integration with other products

    Chuck,

    Glad to see you back! :0)

    Just a few quick questions...have you guys thought about working in the Bird's Eye View maps from Live? Also, I created a tracking app that using web services to communciate vehicle location in near real-time and have wanted to integrate with SD. Sounds like this is something I should hold off on with a new Nav engine. Can you give any info about the new engine that would help with proceeding with my plug-in development?

    If you get a chance, let me/us know.
    Thanks and glad to see you again!
