    Default Whishing Feature M-20

    Hello , manufacturer of blinder , I could send you a direct email but I liked to see what others think of it .

    Overall on the m-20 the wiring is well done and quite easy to figure out.

    But the difficulty arises from having to run the 2 wires from the interface to the transponders.

    Suggestion :

    1 ) Why not be able to send the ''conversation'' between the interface and the transponders via a wireless link.This way the transponders could be hot wired to the -+ close to their location.
    This link could be optional , just plugging it to the interface and , voila !

    2)Even easier would be to have the interface under the hood with a proven heatshield /weatherproof and receiving the alert in the cabin via a wireless link.The receiver could then be on battery and/or 12 volts.

    3)Stealthiness is always compromised by suspicious wires , and arrived an age where it becomes uneasy to play the contortionist under the dash, unless one is a due member of Cirque du Soleil.

    2 ) in the meantime , can i use a doubler on the interface , so i could only run one wire instead of two , this way i could double the feeder to deliver the signal to each transponder.

    3) If my idea find a way , can i received this option free as an appreciation? ah ah

    Wireless, that would be more expensive, and less secure. Why would you want something that can disconnect? Its like your home network at home. Wireless is easy to set up, but it is unstable at times. With regular cables your are connected at 100% at all times. The blinder is easy to hook up, as it is. Only part that took a lot of time was getting the transponders strait and level.

    my wireless = never in 2 years.

    Wire is wire , i agree with you.

    Why do you need a tv remote control ? = convenience .

    Cost is really subjective , when someone wants something the cost is a non-factor , well , my brother-in-law find me Beep to spend for a blinder + veil + v-1 , over $900.00

    and i find him Beep to spend so much on golf , who's right ?

    Regarding cost , the electronics are so cheap now , digital is so faithfull , and it is an option , so let's see first if the manufacturer likes my idea .

    What I would like to see is an integrated Blinder-radar detector system, like the ESCORT PASSPORT SR7 w/shifter or something.

    But what I would want is a wireless link from the unit(S) to the display, which would be a little "barre de chocolat" maybe the size and shape of one piece of a Kit-Kat or the like. Then when you are pulled over for RD use, just press off on the little display, the system shut down, and put the little bar in your pocket. No wires or controls at all visible in the interior!

    Usually the wireless can be very stable. But the wireless will be blocked by metal of the firewall etc. Wires are the best for this. But you can put a wireless transponder on the inside of the dash and a controller on the outside that is wireles...

    I'd like to see more integration with the systems on board the car.

    Alerts can mute the stereo, but if you were on the mobile phone they would do something more visual.

    Alerts could suspend cruise control.

    Alerts could be cataloged by location based on data from on board nav systems, and you could see past alerts on the map or use that data to mute falses.

    Alerts could be displayed using OEM dash panels or nav systems screens, making it hard to tell a car was RD/LD/LJ equipped.

    Many newer cars already have a CAN bus network linking power control modules and other computers together. I'd like future RD's and LD/LJ's to connect to this.

    The wireless idea is great too for those of us with multiple vehicles or those you rent cars when travelling a lot.

    Smart ,

    i tend to disagree on this :

    But the wireless will be blocked by metal of the firewall
    A small wire coming out from the shielded container and up the waves goes everywhere.


    I like your idea of the chocolate bar.And what about bluetooth and the cell phone to give you the alert , the possibility are endless .Manufacturer should offer each possibility as an option.Modularity becomes a marketing tool and you pay for the basic , if you want or extra for the premium.

    Why not offer a ultimate detection system '' a la carte '' ?

    Our friend talking integration is right on .
