Overview

In 2004 a company called "Jaric Design LLC" created a companion hardware module for the Valentine 1 RADAR Locator that would allow BMW owners the ability to use their car's native dashboard as a substitute for the official modular Valentine One remote display. They appear to have supported only a few models from the time period they were in business, 2004 to 2006; The BMW E38, E39, E46, E53, and E85.

While they've been out of business for many years, it seems that the devices show up on eBay or BMW user forums once in a while.

I felt it'd be good to assemble what I could find online of the documentation and relevant files for anyone interested. This is a collection of reference material I was able to briefly scrape together using Archive . org's Wayback Machine. Some of the page captures (saved as PDF prints) are missing image content -- and this is unfortunate, but not correctable due to the fact that the images were never included in the archived copy at the time their bot crawled the site. None the less, I'm a firm believer that any information is better than none at all, and I think there is still a substantial amount of contextual information surrounding the occasional missing embedded image in the instructions -- such that you should be able to get the gist of it.

Attached below is a single zip file containing:
  • Demonstration Videos
    • Dash Cluster Integration
    • OEM Radio Display Integration
    • NAV Display Integration
  • Installation Guides for the Various BMW Models
    • E38 - 7 Series
    • E39 - 5 Series
    • E46 - 3 Series
    • E53 - X5
    • E85 - Z4
  • Owner's User Manual
  • Setup Instructions
  • Display Mode Options
  • Firmware Update Instructions
  • Firmware Images
  • Firmware Update Utility
  • Online Store Product Page-saves Describing the StealthOne
Bonus:
  • eBay Advanced Search to help you watch for them. Copy and paste the below into your eBay account, and save the searches to receive listing notifications in order to watch for them.
    • (jaric,jaric-design,jaric design,jaric designs,jaric-designs,stealth one,stealth-one,stealthone) (bmw,bimmer)
    • (stealth-one,stealth one,stealthone) (v1,valentine-one,valentine one,valentine-1,valentine 1,valentine1)
I hope someone can find this useful.
Give more than you get.
We do it for the love of the game :)

Is there anything similar for the F chassis BMW cars? I remember wanting one of these back when I had an E39 M5.

Nothing specific to the BMW HUDs or Dashboards. The closest thing you could do would be to swap out your Media console screen with an Android computer replacement that can run Android Apps, and get on-screen functionality that way. Also, see this thread here for other ideas: Specialty Radar Detector Hardware

Copy the two custom eBay search strings from above and then save them and subscribe to alerts on your eBay account. I think those two searches will give you zero false positives, as I have the same two on my account as alert subscriptions for daily emails and don’t get any false positives with them how they are now. If I do in the future and need to make changes, I’ll come update them here too in my first post.
 

thanks

Really? Ebay.com and search for it. Not trying to be rude but come on.
:rolleyes: I did, searched Jaric Design LLC, and no luck, and when I got rid of the LLC the search results made me give up immediately...
Links also help when an item that you mentioned has sold which may have been a possibility as well... , with a link someone would be able to see what was for sale....

As mentioned above and in his original posting, I did exactly as he mentioned, )well I only posted the first one), pasted it into a search window as shown here and it found it right away.

:lol: search is an underused function these days, even though we upgraded to the better version of it.

@Jennifer is on point with this, she's actually being nice, normally we would have just inserted a LMGTFY link here.

The point is - we are trying to empower people here - to find answers and seek higher things (100 reference). You guys have the power in you already - use it.

Well, the only reason I wasn't more smart a&s with a "Here, let me Google that for you" response was cus I was on my iphone, driving and eating bag and latte while typing it... ;)

I agree that search is a tool that can provide alot of information if used properly. Too broad a search and it is useless. BTW, I read this thread when it was originally posted, when I came back to read todays posts by a member I did not go back to the first post to re-read the entire thread, and happen to see that there is a reference to search strings (REALLY?).

This forum has a TON of information in it, so theoretically we can all just search existing posts and threads and not bother with new posts? ;) I'm sure xydrine would love that... Personally for ebay links, they are usefull to share the exact item you found for sale, especially since you took the time to post about it here to bring to others attention, so why not make the effort and point it out....

It might make it easier for other to find...

BTW, someone selling R7 at a big discount on ebay

One of the things I'm looking to do is make information more easily accessible/updated. With the RDF Spring Update - the new theme, along with the CMS (articles section), possibility of node teams, etc etc etc... more accessible information is the goal. Of course all of it will tie into RDFGSv2 which will break the wheel. But wheels need to be broken from time to time.
