The Spell Checker deck has a stored spell as part of its benefits. Does this grant knowledge of an additional spell to the decker? If not, what is the benefit of the spell being stored in game terms?

P. 31 under Cyberware list "Unless otherwise noted, only one install of each type of cyberware is permitted"

When it states type, does this mean one per category or on of the specific piece, i.e One piece from "Control Interfaces" or one TSE Cybergunner specifically but you could still get other control interfaces (I am far more concerned about cybereyes and ears though)

You get to cast it.

But no, it doesn't "grant the knowledge".

You can't have two BelleScans for example, to ignore 4 points of Speed penalties.

Thank you. Does this mean that a cyberwitch can only cast stored spells while in the GodNet?

Check the Flesh App entry. It can explicitly be cast while out of the Godnet.

I saw that. But if you know the spell already from a spellcasting perk, you can do that anyway.

You can already cast spells that you know in the Godnet. So the way I've read this, you choose one from the Cyberwitch spell you don't know and can store it in Spell Checker, and cast it both in the Godnet and in the Flesh.

Brilliant, thank you.
