    Im very interested. I have a k40 detector installed in my car, and I would love to remove the LEDs and have them instead displayed on the lcd in streetdeck. I was thinking of taking the LED leds and using some sort of usb module like the one phidget makes to get the data to the pc. Who's radar hardware are you using?

      You're making your own hardware detector? hmmmm

        I am planning the board, and will build it with a variety of components. It can be powered input by 9vdc to 13vdc, perfect for auto, and can range pickups from 50 mhz to 500 ghz channels. Since there is 16 different types of radar frequency bands (HF, P, VHF, UHF, L, S, C, X, Ku, K, Ka, mm, Q, V, E, W), I also need to set the proper band selection, or write an app that changes the frequency response. I still have to figure out a PC link, then write the front end apps.

        Progress: |x|x| | | | | | | | | - 20%

            Just don't use one of these while driving through a state/province that doesn't allow them.. they'd sieze the whole carputer!

              Wouldn't it be easier to take advantage of some of the work done in regards to the Valentine One detector? I know there has been work done in regards to V1 in RR as well as an interface kit that has been produced.

              Not saying that you wouldn't be able to make a perfectly acceptable radar detector, but I would most likely forgo your solution for an "off-the-shelf" product from a company with an R&D division and a proven product track record (eg. Bel/Escort, Valentine, etc).

                yeah I agree.... developing something for a existing radar detector would be better... and you would have a much larger customer base immediately...

                You should be able to develop something pretty quick for a valentine 1 or the escort Passport series detectors...

                  This is what I just responded to in another thread. I'd really like to see something like these get further developed. Unfortunately I don't have the skills nor the funding to start something like this. Not yet at least.
