V1 Dual Display Setup\Phone Adapter?

The V1 Connection Bluetooth adapter plugs into uses the same jack as the External Display cable (ACC). Anyone think plugging in one of these:


into the ACC jack would cause any issues? I'm trying to integrate the display in my mirror and use V1 Connection.

Why?

I have a color coded display setup in the mirror and since my eyes are always checking the mirror, I'd like to use the mirror as the main display and just use the phone to setup custom sweeps, etc...

Re: V1 Dual Display Setup\Phone Adapter?

Finished the install tonight and the Android phone I was using died on me. haha

I can confirm I am getting power to the display in the mirror via the adapter. I'll try and borrow another Android device and see if it works.


On a side note: I purchased a longer telephone cable at Home Depot because the cable which came with the V1 was not long enough... and the the V1 will not power up when it's used. Is there a specific type of phone cable I need to purchase?

Here's a pic of the V1 color display and the STiR + in the mirror... woot

You need to use a cable that would go from the wall to the phone unit; not the type of cable that goes from the phone to the handset. The second type of cable doesn't have all of the wires connected. If it is the correct cable that you're using then maybe it's too long. Although to my mind that's not very plausible, but something to keep in mind. Is there enough power from where you're tapping it and is the ground secure enough? The V1 is very sensitive to having a good ground and power.


Cheers.

To answer your opening question (sorry it got missed), yes, you can use most telephone wire splitters: http://www.valentine1.com/V1info/techheadquarters/default.asp

Just make sure it doesn't include a DSL filter.

For the replacement telephone wire, I found this in the V1 manual:

Making your own Power Cord


Valentine One usesstandard RJ-11 (modular) telephone
connectors. You can use any telephone cable (the one that
runsfrom the wall jack to the phone) for a power cord.
Complete cables are available in many lengths at electrical
or building-supply stores.


You can also make your own power cord using bulk phone
cable cut to whatever length you choose. To attach the
RJ-11 connectors, you will need a special attaching tool.
Bulk phone cables, loose connectors, and the attaching tool
are available in most electrical or building-supply stores.


NOTE: The sequence of wires must be reversed from one
end to the other.

Thanks guys.

I'm using savvy and the OBD port to power the V1 and displays. The cable I purchased says on the box "connecting telecommunications devices to a telephone jack." Cable is 12 feet long.

I'll try Radio Shack an maybe something between 8" too short and 12".

Although it is interesting to see old members never run across before.
