Andy (who developed the V5 Slave CF plugin) told me.Quote:
How did you know this? No biggie, SMB connector can be bought from ebay, farnell, rs etc
http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/displayPro...-2072-00001000 is the cheapest SMB connector that should be used AFAIK. As the radio is now £26.97 + delivery and the connector requires a £10 minimum order, it gets pricey. Not specifically advertising this but DIYers who just want the Venice module can get it for £30 by going through checkout for http://www.coolapplab.com/ultimate_c...ona/index.html and putting 0 in the Power / Control board box.
Mainly an audio driver to improve audio quality. I'll post more details about it and photos shortly but any orders that haven't gone out yet will come with it.
Somebody will have to reverse engineer the slave firmware and then build CF and RR plugins. Standalone software would be good for testing too.Quote:
if so then how about the software to go with it?
Maybe. I'm not convinced. It would require a lot of somebody's time to reverse engineer the slave firmware. Master is easy and the documentation is dotted around the internet anyway.Quote:
Im pretty sure someone will come up with it.
Possibly. As I said, I am not pushing it but there is the option. There is a much bigger market for "ready to roll" hardware as proved by our customer base. I can also guarantee that if you build a high quality board (components we use) you will pay more than we are currently selling the unit for so making more sense to purchase our unit.Quote:
You selling the module for £30 a pop would help the homebrewer.
so nothing regarding my problem list?
add to that the CF plugin seems to crash if you get impatient and say press a button a second time before it reacts...and not just the plugin crashes and freezes the whole of CF stops responding.
example of this being bad:
was driving home form new place of work, changed radio station, then quickly had to switch back to nav to see what turning to take...and as i pressed the button to switch back to nav the screen whites out and i get a loading circle until the station changes....needless to say it cost me a 20 minute detour :/
