    licensed? It's free for ALL!

    While this could be cool, it will also require quite a hefty computer, usually not found in the carputer environment.
    These are real time rendered 3D cities, don't expect an epia to handle that.

    Ermm... not quite. It's free for end users to use on the Microsoft web site, but licensing for integration into applications (use of the API) is how MS (or any other company) makes their money on these things

    I am willing to pay for Virtual Earth 3D MOD if it is implemented into streetdeck.

    I can't imagine many folks with CarPCs that could handle this. As such, I wouldn't expect it to be high on the list of priorities for these guys to work on. Not saying it would never happen, saying it's just not high on the list.

    Maybe once faster processors that require less power and generate less hear become more readily avaliable....

    I knew someone would bring that up.

    they aren't cheap, not by any means, which also means they aren't readily avaliable.

    I'm not talking about one processor...I'm talking about more than one processor... and don't give me that it's more than one because it's a dual core stuff....

    Compared to a all-in-one VIA no, but if you are looking at a Pentium M or a mobile Core 2 Duo the price difference is about $50 for the CPU and motherboard. They are also very readily available.
