    you should have recieved your code. I show that it was sent out to you 21+ hours ago.

    The reason there was a slight lag in getting you your registration key is that you placed the order on New Years day. So there was really only a single day lag in there.

    i realized that the non-ascii characters are not shown on the navigation instructions which makes streetdeck's lock and feel very unprofessional and unusable trying to read e.g. german streetnames with a lot of ÷Řa and ▀.
    Keep in mind, StreetDeck was initially written with North America in mind. The Lite version that you purcahsed is simply the same software but without the Navigation data present. We had a lot of folks request this since they already had the map data from other sources (work being the primary).

    by when can we expect to have those special characters being displayed? months is not an answer for paying customers. this is a main failure of functionality not mentioned in this thread until yesterday. i bought the software before! unhappy customer!
    Our developers are working their tails off currently to get requested functionality working. This will be put in the list of to-dos.

    1. although you can specify kilometers as units instead of miles, the speed definitions are still in mph
    This will be put on the list as well.

    2. english voices for german streets are very funny. you should have the option to speak everything in german (driving instructions plus street names)
    Since you purchased the lite version, there are no voices included. You can choose your own voices to use with the software if you like.

    3. (off topic) please add a estimated time of arrival and current speed label on the panel. it would also be nice to have a beep or warning if you are over speed limit (as iguidance is doing).
    This will be added to the list as well.

    IMO the navigation screen/functionality still needs a lot of improvement compared to other carPC frontends/navigation software (roadrunner, iguidance, destinator). the reason why i decided for streetdeck is the integration of modules rather than doing configurations for hours or days until something works (trying to integrate iguidance into road runner with large buttons and on-screen-keyboard was a nightmare).
    Thanks for your input.

    Don't understand me wrongly. I really appreciate the work you guys are doing for SD. I just try to make the software even better with my feedback.

    I have been using SD now for approx 5 days in my car. So far i can say that it is the best CarPC software. Saying this I have been using Frodoplayer, RoadRunner and CentralFuse. Some are a nightmare to configure, other are just not stable or are lacking many important features. SD ran without any crash.

    Nevertheless two things need to be changed. I know you could skin or work around the below requested features. But I think this would be very well appreciated features for an out-of-the-box solution.

    1. QWERTY keyboard as default
    2. Music navigation / loading should be much simpler

    • No Enhanced Voices


    What you are purchasing is simply a registration code for the trial version. You will be e-mailed a registration code after you submit your machine codes, but will be not be shipped a DVD.

    We may do so in the future, but we do not currently offer the navigation data or updated voices for sale standalone that would allow you to upgrade to navigation at a future time. However, if you install a compatible version of Microsoft Mappoint, navigation will work in this version of StreetDeck. This includes Mappoint 2004, 2006, and Mappoint Europe. You will NOT be able to use the Find Places function in navigation in this version of StreetDeck even after you install mappoint though as this feature is only available for the full DVD version of StreetDeck.


    The limited edition can be purchased here:
    http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=SDK%2D009

    Why take out the Find Places feature? I thought all we needed was Mappoint and it would be the same thing.

    Also what voices are included in the Full version? MS Mappoint has one or 2 I think. Do you include others besides the MS MP 2006 ones?

    I believe the find places feature has some tie in with how the fully integrated version of StreetDeck works. The lite version has never been touted as 'just needing map point and it's the same as the full version'. It's always been pointed out that certain features would not work like the full version.

    There are a few much higher quality voices in the full version. There's a pretty noticeable difference in the quality of these voices and the 'stock' map point voices.

    streetdeck-mappoint ?

    does streetdeck come with the same mappoint you can buy in a store or is it branded for streetdeck. streetdeck can only be used on one personal computer.... can the mappoint program shipped with streetdeck be used on more than one personal computer or is it locked to the streetdeck program

    It does not come with the same mappoint you buy in the stores. It's actually integrated into StreetDeck. There's not a seperate disk for the map data. It's all on one DVD.

    I was under the impression that the integration with mappoint is a simple pluggin in mappoint for streetdeck...Hence the reason i can download SD from here and use it with my already installed mappoint.

    Yes, you can use your own MapPoint for the lite version.

    The question was worded as the user was asking if you could use the MapPoint that comes with StreetDeck on other computers. This is not the case.

    It's not just a simple plug-in with the way that MapPoint is integrated.

    I have an idea of purchasing SD in a special way, because of the not yet available EU version:

    - now I pay the price for the full european version.
    - then I register with the downloaded lite version and use it in the meantime.
    - when the full european version is out you will send me the DVD and I can run it with my already gotten registration code.

    Would be great if this i s a possible way !!

    Else, what do I loose if I use the lite version with MapPoint 2006?
    Poinst of interests - I already heard - anything else?
    Will it also work with future versions of SD?

    My Car PC is ready soon, but SD for EU not available .
    I know it's my own fault, but it's happened .

    Maybe there is a solution.
    God of CPU wrote something that the EU version is propably months away - aaaaaaahh

    Thanks for the information,

    Roland

    You don't lose Points of Interest, you only lose 1 of the 2 ways to search points of interest. You lose being able to search points of interest by free form name query ("Find Place By Name" in SD), you can still search by type, i.e. You can do things like restaurants within 5 mi, but you can't do things like find nearby "McDonalds". This is the only limitation.

    The recommened and supported way to get the european version is to do exactly as you want and purchase Mappoint Europe and StreetDeck lite. This was one of the major reasons for releasing the lite version. The bundled european version is on hold until we finish our UNICODE port.
