    Visuals while listening to music

    Request for Streetdeck feature:
    when i load up a play list and Streetdeck goes from song to song and i am not using the GPS it would be nice to have some visuals.
    maybe full screen or atleast larger Album Art.

    Visualizations are only supported on the rear screens of multimonitor systems.

    Dual Screen?

    As it is not publicized much, what is the advantage of having dual screen and what exactly does the second screen do? Do you have any examples or screenshots of the dual screen configuration?

    It's a legal issue

    It is because of a legal issue that visualizations are considered a distraction and therefore a driving hazard - it would fall under the same laws that keep us from watching DVD's while driving... It's a CYA issue... But larger album art and a "detail screen" would not be....

    Not to get into legal symantics, but that wouldn't cover them as any contract that is entered into on the premise of breaking a law is not binding... Therefore they'd just get sued when you were watching your visualization and ran off the road, or rear ended the person in front of you...

    what about album art though? I'm not talking about colors flying around. If anything the adition of album art would be a safe feature. rather than try to figure out what song i am listening to i can tell instantly by the album cover.
    would album art fall under this legal problem?
