Had an idea about using a refurbished escort 8500 from flea-bay and making it a remote mount unit.
Reason for this would be to have spec mode running alongside my (soon to arrive) v1.
How I would accomplish this would be to de-solder the lcd screen from the board on the 8500 and extend the leads or make a connector etc, then put the screen in my dash.
I've access to a electronics workshop, wrist strap for grounding so I don't short anything out.
I'm wondering why nobody has done this before? Is it because on the true remote mount RD's, the horn is just that, the horn and nothing else? All circuitry is located in the car itself?
Really like to take a stab at it actually but figure'd I would ask everyone here and see if I'm going to waste my time.
