    I'm at work too so I can't double-check, but from what I recall, it only allowed me the option of sorting alphabetically by either Artist or Album.

    When I load a playlist in Queue mode it loads the playlist in the order that I saved it, which is great, the two problems with the Queue mode are that 1) you can't replay a song once you skip over it, and 2) if you load a playlist and already have something on the Queue, then you have to manually select the first song of the new playlist you loaded (no "on-the-fly" switching)

    When I load a playlist without the Queue option, then it won't load the songs in order! So in sum: when NOT in Queue mode, we should have the ability to open up a playlist in the order that WE saved it. And really, I don't see this being difficult to implement at ALL since you are actually doing less commands: Loading a playlist versus loading a playlist and reordering it

    My understanding is that bluetooth phone conversations didn't work very well using the XP bluetooth stack and a generic bluetooth dongle, so they opted to go with the specialized hardware.

    That's how my USB GPS worked in Mappoint... USB GPS emulated a COM port, and you point the software to that COM. Worked like a charm...

    It seems obvious to me that this ISN'T the point of Streetdeck. There are plenty of loosely coupled frontends. It seems to me that Streetdeck is a more integrated platform, and all of your apps run WITHIN Streetdeck providing continuity and a more polished system. I looked at other frontends and just couldn't bring myself to use them since I'd always be app switching and there was no integration between apps...

    I'd like the ability to queue up an entire directory with sub directories. Because you can only queue up a directory's immediate files.
    If I have a folder called "ROCK" and I just wanna rock out , I want to call all the files in that folder and sub-folders. If I wanna make the girls shake it , then I wanna call out all the files in the "STRIPPER MUSIC" folder and sub-folders

    Also I'd like SD to be less of a load on my CPU, not that I havent tried to find a solution as of yet, I just got SD the other day

    and i think it would be good if you had the option to change the keyboard layout from alphabetic, what it is now, to a standard keyboard layout. I cant get used to that alphabetic layout.

    Also could we request that the "module not available whilst vehicle is in motion" feature can be disabled. Often i drive with a passenger that could use these features safely! Clearly if im on my own in the car then i could have the modules disabled

    I just got this software and am not familiar with all the features but here are a few that I would love to see added.

    1. Volume/ Mute button while in navigation.

    2. Basic color changer. An option in the settings to change the overlay color without having to make a new skin. (Example- I would like an Amber color to match my BMW dash lights.

    3. Keyboads in SD be keyboard layout and not in Alphabetical order (I cant believe they are in that order WTF This drives me NUTS!!)

    4. Show the time on every screen. Like in Navigation... maybe a small time display in the bottom right corner.

    5. Of course adding Sirius Radio

    6. I would like the trial to last longer so I can play with it more on my laptop. I have had to reload SD on my carPC 5 times from screwing around with it and breaking it.

    You should be able to at any time save your current location as a favorite in destinnations. Some places you do not have address for or the map is a little off. I do not think this should be to hard...just saves the lat/long coordinates and you can give it any name you want.

    I want the ability to have multi-tiered music searches.
    Start with artist, then album, then track.
    Have it go by tags, not directories/filenames.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
