    couple questions

    so does anybody recomend this for someone like me who's not too savvy in programing? i want a simple easy approach to a frontend software.

    can you play music videos while driving?

    The whole philosophy of StreetDeck is to make installing and using a carputer easier for the average person.

    You can play videos while driving and hear them, however, the video will be blacked out until you come to a stop.

    also when i start the trial version an error message shows this:
    could not find any compatible direct3d devices. Note: your computers desktop display mode must be set to a mode with a color depth of 32-bits.

    my color only has the option up to 24. do i need a video card? or am i missing some software. but it works in low performance mode.

    LEGALLY you can't watch videos while you drive.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Just curious, how does StreetDeck know when you're at a stop? If it uses GPS, I can just send fake NMEA strings to the com port.

    You don't have a directX 7 compatible video card or you don't have DirectX 7 compatible drivers installed.

    Low performance mode doesn't use direct3D which is why it works.
