    When will DMD2 become standard on the Carpe Iter Tablet? I need to replace my current tablet but I can wait if DMD2 will be the launcher. Any thoughts on that?

    DMD is the standard CARPE Launcher.
    DMD2 will be the standard CARPE Launcher when its ready.
    Currently CARPE tab includes a Manager app that allows you to install all our apps for free (including DMD).
    I am actually considering releasing the first beta really soon, when i do, any CARPE owner just needs to open the Manager app, go to App Shelf (our own App Store with all our apps) and install DMD2.
    CARPE Tab will always have everything for free (any subscription for Navigation / Roadbook / Online stuff / etc ) everything is available for free on the CARPE tab.

    @John@ThorkRacing, do you happen to know why we’ve been seeing such slowness issues lately? Is it the broken weather widget trying to get an update?

    The roadbook doesn't seem to work at all anymore for me (I don't know since when, don't use it a lot). Trying to load a pdf (that worked before) and it still only displays the odometers etc widgets.

    Is there any way to download a previous version of DMD? The latest version is very slow on my 2 year old device and some functions cause the device to freeze.

    Looks like John is spending every waking moment on the new DMD2, so we’re all stuck with the software glitches on the current one without support for now.

    Mine full on stopped reading speed or anything the other day. Needed to hard power off and restart. Suppose we’ll be living with this stuff til the new app is released.

    Hello guys,
    I'm building a tablet for replacing my current garmin setup and 'trying' roadbook navigation.

    I have two question before buying DMD:
    - can I restore the app on a new tablet if I crash or break the one I'm using now? (an old one, 2013, single core 1.3ghz, 1gb ram, slow as hell and not waterproof or shockproof at all :lol3)
    - will I be able to download DMD2 for free if I buy DMD? (I don't want to buy the app now, and maybe need to buy the app again in a couple of weeks)

    Thanks!

    Did you by any chance activate the "Instruments Only" option?
    What is your Android version so i can test?
    Just did a 2 days trip without any problem.

    What android version?

    What Android version?
    We used it on 6 different bikes with different tabs and phone, 2 day trip without a glitch.

    DMD1 does not include restore functionality, i mean like getting all your GPX files, saved Locations, Roadbooks, Trip Logs, etc... that will be a DMD2 feature once its ready.

    DMD2 Launcher is free but you will have to purchase plugins if you want them, example:
    - Map View is not Free
    - Roadbook is not Free
    - Online Account / Backup & Sync / Share / etc will not be free

    Probably better to wait for DMD2 in your case?

    That was it.. never saw that the option menu was different in roadbook mode, so i'm not sure how it changed. Thanks!

    Actually you know what... so that i can start getting feedback i think i´ll publish the Launcher today.... just launcher, no Roadbook, no Map, nothing... basically only the free Launcher.
    As i finish the paid products ill make them available for purchase.
    OBVIOUSLY, later when you purchase the "plugins" they show up in the Launcher, either as full new VIEWS and also as Widgets if the view includes widgets too.

    But it will not do much as it is... just a Launcher with ODO/Trip...
