I've been watching the top front ends for awhile now... one thing to look at is the fact that there hasn't been any updates in the skin forums for this for over 7 months, 3 months in the scripts forum, and 8 months in the bug report forum, just a VERY MINIMUM amount of posts for all forums under SD. when you look at riderunner its over populated with threads and its a FREE frontend. im not saying any FE is bad, or even better than another, I'm just pointing out the fact that once a 'new release' is being made, in both CF and SD, the support drops off the face of the planet. for this reason I will never pay for CF or SD unless upgrades are free. Why spend money when 4-6 months down the road a new version will be 'in the making' then you have a problem and your left with your d**k in your hands, pockets empty, and at the mercy of the upgrade price because your so used to that front end?
Unless the support shows improvement in EITHER of these front ends I hope for nothing other than these FE's to die off
SD Has always been like that. Slow with development as far as third party is concerned. CF and RR on the other hand are always posting new things. CF support hasn't slowed down that much, its just no one is really asking for major help since they are all waiting for the CF3 release, and FLUX has ironed most of the bugs out of CF2. I haven't bothered with CF2 since CF3 started its testing. Not that there is anything wrong with CF2. Flux did fix the major issue (phone), before finally announcing that CF3 was replacing CF2. You make it sound as though the upgrade price is going to make you go bankrupt. Its only like 49.99. If you currently have the Destinator maps, then the upgrade is 49.99, you simply copy the maps from CF2 into CF3.

Mind you they did decide to do a street deck move and stop all support for a short time, but once people voiced their anger, Flux picked up on the support.
PS: nothing wrong with having your d#*k in your hands, next time do a back and forth motion and I guarantee it will be fun. :fish:
PS 2: There is a slight chance that Flux my go with Geolife's Navmii for navigation. Geolife has expressed great interest in working with Flux and setting up a licensing arrangement, which none of the other companies would do (thats why cr@pinator is still there). Flux has stated they do not want to start negotiations until they get CF3 out, so maybe by CF 3.1 or 3.2, we will see a new Nav engine.
