    Has mp3Car looked into Cheetah radar products?

    Hi guys, new member here, been lurking for ages though.

    I saw a post a few days ago on radar detector interfaces, and how there really is no OEM/aftermarket solution for making a radar detector interact with carPCs. The few available are homebrews and not well supported in frontends.

    Someone mentioned Speed Cheetah and their custom line of products designed to integrate radar detectors with their custom rear view mirror/displays. I was browsing around on their site and found this OEM page:

    http://www.speedcheetah.com/scshop/s...y=1&language=1

    It looks like they are looking for carPC companies to allow most of the popular radar detectors (not just the V1 like current solutions) to interact with a carPC via Bluetooth. It looks like they have the hardware availabe and are looking for software partners to integrate Cheetah support into their frontends.

    This sounds like a match made in heaven for mp3car. CarPC/radar detector integration is one of my favorite ideas for my next install and it'd be awesome if I could purchase a Bluetooth Cheetah box for an Escort SRX plus a StreetDeck module for the PC.

    Just an FYI in case no one's looked into it.

    Thanks for the suggestion, no we have not looked into this product or considered this concept. I will put this on the list for next week to discuss, and see if this product makes sense.

    Total amount spent so far: $1196.64

    You will probably spend AT LEAST 2x what you initially budget for your CarPC Project!

    I already suggested this a year ago to MP3...but no response.

    However glad to see its being considered now.

    MP3car team. You kmow that they have an SDK kit. Perfect for integration into SD or CF.

    We have talked about this product alot - We are happy to sell the Cheetah with software if StreetDeck developers or Centrafuse developers or RoadRuner developers are willing to create a program for this unit.

    This would be a great product.

    I am positive if you sold the Cheetah with software a RoadRunner plug-in would be following shortly.

    Can't promise anything from me, I'm holding off on the new truck until January, so I won't have anything to test it with until then.

    Have you talked with Cheetah? If they are willing to sell me a BlueTooth unit + SDK in January, I'd be willing to work with making the code work
