    StreetDeck Limited Edition Released for $119.00

    A new less expensive version of StreetDeck has been put on the store. It is the same as the full DVD version, execept for the following things:



    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:

    Voice

    With mappoint installed, will the voice instructions work with GPS nav? I assume one can still search for a POI in the normal manner within mappoint?

    Yes, the voices work just fine.
    Yo can also purchase additional voices (like the AT&T Natural Voices) and those work well, also.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    If you purchase the limited edition and install mappoint europe it will work. Europe is and will continue to be supported in this version. The only thing not availble will be non-ascii characters.

    A full bundled european version is probably months away.

    I googled "AT&T Natural Voices", but their website doesn't offer any way to buy the voices...where can they be purchased?

    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 ▀.

    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!

    some other things you probably should consider for the european customers

    1. although you can specify kilometers as units instead of miles, the speed definitions are still in mph
    2. english voices for german streets are very funny. you should have the option to speak everything in german (driving instructions plus street names)
    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).

    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).

    i haven't understood mp3 navigation/loading yet. seems to be a complete new way how streetdeck is approaching it. what do i have to do to load an entire album in alphabetic song title order and not in track order...

    There are several downloadable TTS programs that use a couple of really good voices that are much better than those included in the MSFT speech SDK or AT&T.

    Ultra Hal:

    NeoSpeech:

    http://www.neospeech.com/

    I'm using VWKate (Neo Kate 16 in NeoSpeech). It is a very natural sounding voice that isn't nearly as choppy or grating as some of the SDK voices like MSFT Bob.

    oh and thank you btw for making this version available, since I'd rather have the option to buy it without the nav software.
