    Hy,

    Thanks for this
    Btw your website is very nice!

    I would like to ask you a few questions :
    - You wrote about serial support... but no schematics, what shall we do to perform this ?
    - Concerning your last schematics update, could you plz confirm me that twice RJ11 pics on it need to be female RJ11 plugs ?
    - Could you take pics from this schematic already done ?
    - My local electronic shop couldn't have 2N3904 before a very very long time, and online "elect. parts" offer in France is very poor... So, wassup with your pretty nice idea of selling it already mount ? )

    *PS : When I use TTL2USB (+ V1 plug ) with the other already existing "SoftOne" software, it doesn't works.... Maybe my V1 cables are too long, or a part is a non-official V1 ( just phone RJ11 cable )... Do you think that your schematic+soft would be affected too by one of those pb ?

    Thanks a lot.

    To test it out, i used the usbmod with the serial drivers, using the same schematic. I haven't spent too much time working on a serial only schematic.

    - Concerning your last schematics update, could you plz confirm me that twice RJ11 pics on it need to be female RJ11 plugs ?
    yes, these are female plugs, so you can just use regular 4 conductor telephone wire, like for the rest of the V1 accessories.

    - Could you take pics from this schematic already done ?
    There are some really ugly, small pics attached. I plan to make a prettier version, and post up nice pics.

    http://www.fairchildsemi.com/ds/2N/2N3904.pdf print that out and take it into your electronics shop, they should be able to find something similar. A 2n4401 or NTE 123AP should work well too.

    It will be at least 3 weeks, if everything goes well. Once I get it all finalized, I will let everyone know.

    I have noticed a lot more noise in the signal running the software in my car, than running it in my house. I never get any errors when I have it hooked up to my computer inside, with the V1 hooked up to ac-dc power suplly plugged into the wall.

    In the car, there are some glitches, but it is usually only an extra bit lit here or there. I have put some new filtering features in the latest build (not yet up, sorry) that checks the incoming signal to make sure it makes sense.

    Hy,

    Thx for those fast answers

    I'm not really needing serial interface...
    So, ASA I receive my electronic parts, I'll tro to do it
    Don't be afraid for me, I've already used a lot of RJ11 female+male in my car...
    I've done myself an over-mirror with V1 CD + RA in it And to plug and unplug it fastly I've put a rj11 female on it....

    Plz post you better pics when possible on your website )

    Thx a lot.

    Hi forden,


    Could you please provide further info on that "over-mirror", with these misterious CD+RA some photos would be most appreciated too


    I'm planning to purchase a V1 for use mostly in Spain, which I assume is pretty much the same as France with regard to radar and lidar being used by police for speed control, do you find V1 effective in exposing bogeys in your country?...

    Thanx & Greetz.

    Matt.

    Hello,

    As I was expecting, it didn't work with my V1 ;-(
    Maybe my cables were too long, so I've retired the V1+his installation from my car, to test this with shorter cables...

    I'll try it soon, and make my report, 'coz I'm planning to buy a car PC soon, and I need this solution before buying it.

    Regards.

    PS : If a working box has been done, I'd be really interested in too...

    I am hoping to have some working prototypes soon. I ordered some boards a month ago, and they have been really slow in coming. Assuming they work properly, I will probably be going with another company to make more.

    I am hoping to have some ready to go late next week (I am out of town until tuesday), but it really depends on when the boards actually show up.

    Sorry about all the delays, but I am really excited about getting this done too!

    Hy,

    That's good news ( still working on it ).
    For myself , I've tried outside the car, and it doesn't work ;((
    I can't understand, I've correctly done the schematics, and correctly installed the USB drivers ( not connected to internet.... ).
    Else I've bought a TTL2USB to try with the other soft, and it doesn't work too.........

    ( I've tried it on my new portable Centrino computer, so USB ports work correctly.... ).

    What could be the matter ?

    Thanks

    Forden

    well, I got the boards, and they look good, but they didn't ship everything, so I am still missing parts. I need to find a local supplier for pcb mount Rj-11 jacks....
