    CD/DVD support - only in the trunk?

    Where do you access/install the cd/dvd rom at?

    Read the manual and that only details the SW. Also looked at quite a few other places on the streetdeck site and here but found nothing definitive.

    TIA,

    It is installed in the computer. You could also do a custom bondo type install of an optical drive in your dash board if you were very motivated.

    The Importing Media section in the manual states that the easiest way to do such is to attach an external USB drive, so I would assume that having a CD/DVD drive in the dash is just a matter of running a usb cord to the trunk where SD is located.

    Dooh so the DVD player is just the SW.......

    You must purchase that too. The descriptions need to be cleaned up a lot then. There are so many things in the fine print that will bump the costs of this well beyond a decent home built system.

    The SW Looks awesome and I would love to see that as a separate item you can purchase.

    Note: I don't work for streetdeck or mp3car, but I'm not sure what you want more clear...

    I was really approaching this from the perspective of their target market which is not really a lot of the folks here. Except maybe lazy lurkers like myself.

    If you say dvd player to someone buying a computer they expect to have to purchase nothing else. This is being marketed as a turn key kind of a solution, yet the details need tweaking. The nuances in how this is marketed need refinement and I have approached them regarding this.

    The BETA unit includes the hardware for the DVD player in the trunk. The store listing will be fixed to mention this.

    From the store:
    Vehicle Diagnotics - requires OBD-II connector (not included)
    Camera support requres camera purchase and connecting hardware (not included)
    FM radio requires FM tunner (not included)
    Bluetooth phone integration requires bluetooth chip (not included)(chip in final development)
    Satellite Radio required XM direct box and Cable (not included)

    We will be releasing a complete list of certified hardware within a month, however, StreetDeck should work with most of the generic PC hardware you are familiar with.
