... and I sorta figured this would be a good place to find potential testers/gather some info. I'm an electrical engineering student and I'm doing this project in my free time.
I'm starting targeting the V1 (since the V1 is what I own, and I have the specifications for the remote display comm bus timing) and will be integrating this V1's data with my Droid cell phone.
The goal is to make the V1 locationally aware: I will record and upload radar events over the 3G network, using GPS to record the location. After a drive I can view the "events" on a map (from my computer or phone) and choose to silence these locations in the future, warn myself of a speed trap zone, etc. It is my intention to allow the phone to control both display on/off status on the V1 and mute functionality.
I recently just found out about trapper and sent their developers and email hoping that I can agree to standardize the RFCOMM data I stream so that they can integrate this with their existing software without much fuss, but we'll see if they are interested.
If any of you guys have ideas for other detectors with a remote interface (be it like the V1's, a computer interface like USB, etc) please let me know. There is a thread for the app/hardware development on an android forum but I can't post the link with my postcount so that will have to wait. In the meantime, I'm open to ideas and suggestions, so please throw them my way. I'm going to subscribe to the thread to stay updated.
