    If you drove an Infiniti G35 last spring, then you might've been lucky too...

    I love my car, cause (A) it's a G35 Coupe, and (B) cause it's got StreetDeck!

    (two really cool toys that deserve each other)

    Good luck with the release of street deck and now I understand why you didn't want me giving out links to my website.

    $2500 is expensive but I think with the hardware and software you have spec'd in it's resonsable.

    12Vsystems; I went to your website and have a suggestion for you. I think you need to hire someone to do better graphics for your site. If you want people to get a real sense of your system especially the screen shots better pictures will be needed.

    Good luck.

    I'll work on the graphics one of these days. Thanks for the heads up.

    I've been a lucky beta tester for many months. If I total the amount I put into my carPC, it easily reaches the $2k mark for hardware alone (P4 system with 512MB RAM, Win XP Pro, OPUS, XM radio, SB Extigy, Alk CoPilot GPS, external DVD, USB hubs, Xenarc touchscreen w/ customized housing to look stock, etc.) If I were starting from scratch I would go for it and skip the headaches. You do know that unlike AVIC etc, you can customize this thing with skins? At least the beta has a skin editor with it. And the primary developer has been very responsive to making updates and has even more cool stuff planned (that I don't know if I am allowed to disclose or not).

    I agree that if you already got your system together, then a software version would be really nice. I can understand why support would be a nightmare though with all the custom/varied/flaky carPC setups out there. I have expressed my opinion to "the management" that a software version should be an option. I think a trial/demo version that would allow you to test it on your hardware for 15 days or what not would be a nice option.

    The user interface is just out of this world - just A M A Z I N G. But hefty CPU/graphics processing power seems to be called for. I don't know that the "Intel Extreme Graphics" can make the cut. You'd have to ask the StreetDeck folks to find out how well your hardware fits the bill...

    And yes the navigation is based on the MapPoint SDK. The maps are WAY better than my CoPilot Laptop v8 and the voice prompts with speech-to-text (I used AT&T Natural Voices that I already was using with my home automation system but any SAPI compliant voice can be used) is just soooo cool.
    I have been able to get StreetDeck to run stable on my MII 10000 with onboard graphics, i did have to upgrade to 512MB RAM, but its running fine.

    Its a little slow starting up but once up its fast.
