    *** New Product *** MJS Gadgets USB-IO-1

    I got a new Product, available in days, from right here at mp3Car.com

    (Why announce here, cause I designed it for primarily Ride Runner, and I love you guys )

    its a USB I/O interface

    Its not meant to compete with any existing one out there, just be simpler
    Its in the same size ENCLOSURE as my UAS4 (USB Audio Selector)
    (so approx 3" x 2" x 1")
    the Key is the Ride Runner Plugin i did, hopefully i thought of everything
    (which of course i didn't, but it can expand it as requested)

    the manual is attached

    Features:
    • USB Powered and Controlled.
    • USB HID Device – No drivers needed.
    • 4 – Relays (1 amp) selectable Normally-Open or Normally-Closed
    • 4 – Digital Inputs (5 – 30 volt opto-coupled).
    • Plug-able Terminal Blocks, (Phoenix style).
    • Road Runner plug-in available.
    • Centrafuse plug-in available.
    • Developer .DLL available. (.NET Based)
    • Includes 6’ USB A to Mini-B Cable.


    Some things you can do with it:
    • Control Power Antenna
    • Control Audio Amplifiers
    • Control Power Window Module
    • Control Accessories
    • Control Incoming Phone Call Notifier (Led in cluster)
    • Detect Parking lights on
    • Detect Parking Break (to allow video)
    • Detect Car in Park (to allow video)


    Almost unlimitied ideas...
    (yes you can use more than 1)

    Suggested Retail $55

    I think one key thing to add to your list, is the ability to use it to control voice recognition. You could hook a momentary switch to it, and have it trigger RR to listen for commands when using the voice recognition plugin by jebus.

    Thanks, that's very cool. The voice control thing is a good idea, although I personally have it solved already.

    Could it be used to control like RGB leds, like blue for speed trap, red for incoming calls, green for incoming phone calls, bright white when doors open, etc.? (say you have a led strip in your instrument cluster, wherever - but which can change colors according to I don't know what controls those rgb things, resistance, pulses?).

    On second thought, I think the above would work best if it could work w/o the computer being on though...

    As it is right now, you could hook a couple of different color LED strips to different relays. Turn on the one you want for the color you want ect. Talking to Mitch, me mentioned you could also have say a red and a blue hooked to different relays, and turning on both would give off purple light.

    Of course that is just a temporary solution.... Until.... say..... ummmm.... another "Gadget" comes along?

    I'm just saying.....

    Awesome gadget! Ill be purchasing one. I have been waiting for a simple USB controlled relay bank for some time now. The real purpose is to control external circuits from touchscreen buttons. (Example, ground trigger your headlight switch from RR, or positive trigger your amplifier from RR, or lock unlock your doors from RR)

    It can be used to control even higher draw circuits if external relays are added.

    I suppose you could use it to light up some LED's or integrate it into voice control contraption, but IMO these ideas are really missing the point of the device. This is my opinion though and everyone will have a different use.

    For S & G's I may have to add a "start / stop" button to RR to fire up and shut down my engine
