    How much interest is there from people wanting me to produce and distribute these?
    Esthetics's are everything!!! If you plan on marketing yours, if you want my money the screen HAS TO duplicate the V-1 faceplate, sounds and lights exactly. It has to popup on top of whatever is on screen. I would go so far as to say it needs an RR plugin and definitely have a button onscreen to mute the sound.

    Yea, see im making the hardware, and maybe some basic frontend for it. I would expect (and hope) that others out there would make other frontends for it (Roadrunner, certafuse, etc). I would just release the hareware and how to talk to it.

    Thanks. Yea the design is done and I have a PCB on order so I can test it before I batch order some and have them assembled. The software is like 90% complete. Just a few more things and it should be good to do everything the real concealed display does.

    Once I have the first small batch built (5 or so) etc I will see if anyone wants to buy them and if I should put in a larger order or not. Im really not sure how much demand there is for this anymore.

    FYI, if anyone has a good name for this it would be appreciated Dont know what to be calling this...

    This sounds awesome. I've been looking for something like this to add radar to my carpc.

    Regarding the plugins for frontends, it shouldn't be too hard. Zorro over at the centrafuse forums would probably be willing to help you with one for CF.

    Valentine 1 to Nokia mobile via bluetooth

    Hi everybody

    I see alot of you searching for a place to install the remote display, So i decide to build an electronic project to send the data of valentine 1 to Nokia mobile via bluetooth.
    In this case you can put valentine 1 at any place in the car and connect my device with 12v source to it and you can see all data of V1 in your mobile with bluetooth.
    Do you find this interesting and worth to build ????
