    Am I the ONLY person using Streetdeck v2? I hope not

    Hey guys,

    So I've used/puruchased Streetdeck v1 with nav from day one, I liked it a lot it did everything I needed it to do and NEVER gave me any issues. So fast forward some years and of course v2 came out and Streetdeck is gone (I guess?) I purchased V2 when it came out but never installed it until last weekend, I finally got around to redoing my carpc with a new mobo/cpu/ram and a ssd. V2 is giving me some issues and I was wondering if anyone here could provide any help?


    Issue #1

    1) I use a Holux GR213 USB GPS receiver, I never....ever had an issue with this guy on V1, I literally never seen the (low signal) or (0 satellites) messages, in V2 it recognizes the Receiver, but 9 times out of 10 it doesnt lock onto a satellite, I have to wait like 5-10 minutes if I am lucky. I close out SD, open up GPSviewer and it seems to lock instantly and refresh every second with no issues.


    2) Now comes my more frustrating issue, V1 had straight forward power options, V2 does not seem to have these anymore. I cant figure out a good combination of power schemes to make my carpc work how it used to work. I have my power supply to auto cutoff power after 2hrs. So First I tried Hibernation on my win7 machine, 9 times out of 10 it comes back to a blue screen when I start my car 10 minutes later. So I tried sleep mode, now the pc will come back up quick but SD will be a black screen if I touch my screen it says SD has crashed would I like to wait or close it. So now it seems sleep is not an option anymore either. Am I doing something wrong here?

    I am running the latest update which I believe is 2.1.1

    I still like the look and my main point of my carpc is music/navigation, and when SD is working it does these 2 perfect for me and I like the look as well, so hopefully there are some fixes I don't know about to solve these 2 issues, Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks

    You might be beating a dead horse here. Streetdeck was many moons ago and might not have even been around when win7 was released. That could be a big problem, next all the .net framework has had many version updates from that time as well. Maybe try another FE to se if it corrects your problems at least. Driveline is pretty easy to use, no installer just run the exe after you unzip to your location. Just a thought SNO

    I appreciate the reply, its a shame because I paid a decent amount for v1 with nav and the v2 w nav update. I like the way it looks, but the power issue and gps issue are having me lean towards trying another FE

    Is there anything as user friendly (when there arent issues lol) as SD?

    Driveline is easy to setup, use and it's free! Plus is made by an active coder and uses all the standard carputer hardware. Give it a try. SNO

    I know this thread is a year old, but there are some of us who still use SD. It still is functional for me, my CarPC is getting long in the tooth, but until I buy a new car or have a need to upgrade I am pleased with what I Have. Hope things have worked out for you.

    Hey Jason, long time no see. I stayed with SD years after it was dropped by Chuck, but he did help me get some stuff fixed long after there was no support for it. I was one of the few that liked SD and its design so I never changed it, even upgraded to v2.

    I have a carpc I am probably going to sell on here that i built from the mp3store, its pretty much unused, I built it in Sept/oct, used it for about 2 hours, let me know if you are interested before I list it up for sale.
