    I find i'm constantly using my Bluetooth Keyboard instead of the gestering, however the Forwards / Back gestures are the ones i use the most.

    The gesture I most frequently use has nothing to do with StreetDeck and everything to do with my middle finger at my driver window or out my sunroof.

    The biggest "problem" with StreetDeck is that it is not a custom solution.

    On one extreme, there are those who want a working carPC solution with the least hassle and are not prepared to put in the time and pick up the skills to do a custom install from scratch. They just want something that works with minimum fuss with the technical support to fix it when it breaks.

    Then on the other extreme, there are others who are prepared to put in weeks (months? years?) building a carPC system from basic component parts and enjoy thinkering with almost every aspect of the system until the install fits their needs perfectly.

    Nothing wrong with either approach. And in certain cases, it may actually be cheaper to buy an off-the-shelf solution like StreetDeck than trying to build your own. (Sort of like buying an Opus/M2-ATX/DSATX than building your own DC-DC with SDC).

    You just have to know which type of carPC owner you are and choose the appropriate approach.

    It can be part of a custom solution once the developer version is released...

    Custom Install?

    If you have the money, forget the custom install and pay someone to do it for you - it's the American way (and then they are responsible for it breaking, not you)

    Was there supposed to be a G35 skin released with the new update? I didn't see one when I installed it...

    Later this week, it will be a separate download.
