So we're back to 'click' possibly referring to a detachable faceplate that can be mounted anywhere in the vehicle communicating with the 'body' via internal Bluetooth or dongle?

I think "Click" is the sound of a pen being clicked by a little robot who will compose handwritten notes about each detection then mail them via USPS on a weekly basis, with occasional cheerful haikus and cute little doodles.

I think that's right. Based on Jon's comment above, the A/D isn't going to be in remote units that comm via USB-C, and long cable RF I don't think anyone would expect or want. So we're looking at a wired remote display, a la the V1's. USB-C can't solely be for power, can it? BT to a remote display I'd think is not a good idea, as BT is flakey and I want an RD that's rock solid working every power on.

Gets back to the risk Jon is running by dropping hints. We're all creating some expectations. But it's fun.

I got no idea what's going on here. What I hate is I'm a calculated decision maker who takes time to commit to a device. I sit back, watch reviews, testing, feedback e.c.t. Stack cash when I can to afford things and juuuuust as I'm about to buy something.... Booom new news arrives on a product, and I have to be patient again ha!
Anyways... Wireless detectors or jammers would be very cool and a huge advance if they work well, especially for installs. Unsure if they are hinting at the "possibility" even if it's device to phone which would be cool.
Banking on it being the bsm filter detector tho as that has been mentioned. Wild guess. :munch:

We’re you shooting K or Ka?

No. BSM proliferation chased them away. 99% of the RD using public has no idea of the relationship between police K, Ka, & BSM Falses. To them the damn thing just beeps too much and has become intolerable.

I took an Uber across town a few weeks ago. The guy driving the minivan had a cheap POS on the dash that literally didn’t STFU the entire 15 minute ride. He had absolutely no idea what this beeping box was telling him.
K band on that trip. Run Ka on others looking for reaction. No difference.

my “chaos” statement was broad and included BSM. I get that. Should have been more clear.

I know the spec firsthand and that's why I used the word onerous. Link for others: https://www.usb.org/sites/default/files/documents/usb_type-c_locking_connector_specification_rev_1_0_20160309_0.pdf

Pic attached.

Decide for yourself if a screwed USB-C is worth the hassle. Consider that if you mount and touch once a year, the locking to ameliorate wear slippage isn't necessary. And if you do an insertion cycle daily for security, you'll go nuts unscrewing. View attachment 132017

You're better off going with the aftermarket magnetic add-on setup. Just not worth an iota of time for Radenso to do otherwise.
To me, the @Jon at Radenso oval logo looks like a female portion Of lightning connection, or mag connector on Apple products. :) Licensed to Radenso for use. Only in my dreams. :)

Forgot to add, a detector in which you can just buy, and then download specific software based on the cameras you face, and/or region would be killer too. Company just turns out one unit, user buys it, and then custom installs the updates that suit them. Customer gets what he wants, company manufactures one unit to suit all. Sorted worldwide no gps region or network locked type device. Travel proof for all the high fliers with country camera customisation. I know, I'm probably dreaming...
Sounds better than a cord change though doesn't it?

Why would they alienate the other half of the world that doesn't go the Apple route? That makes no sense...

No, I meant use that Apple tech as a power/communication connection to the device. Not alienate half the customer base. The chord would be USB or something on the other end. my analogy centered on something clever, reliable, hard to destroy, easy, and is better design than USBc for the device. I also was joking about his pictorial design saying it looked much more like a Apple female connector than USBc that way back at beginning of the post some said it looked like. I carried that forward to a fantasy “what if” wording.

If Radenso ends up making a decently powerful general purpose CPU based unit, there is utterly no limit to what can be done. Rather than an ASIC based dedicated RD, if we had good sensor data being fed into a powerful unit, software can morph ad infinitum, a la JBV1.

So I don't think you're dreaming. It's the way to excellence in a detector, again as JBV1 has shown.

Needs the added bonus of being stealth for the win though. Plus give decent range for redflex and the more harder to detect things. Not 50m range at 60kmph. That's nothing when speed increases to 110-120kmph. By the time it's reacted, and then you've reacted, you're gone already.

Can you explain what you mean for us none techies, ASIC etc?

Such a big discussion... All that this picture means is that the detector will have ability to program it and create apps using published API and USB-C port. If Radenso is smart enough, they would also add useful accessories using same port like dashcam with ability to "protect" the recorded file from erasing when radar detector detects the police radar, and maybe automatically upload such file to the cloud if your detector is using your smartphone as Wi-Fi access point so the police will not be able to prevent you from using video evidence when fighting a ticket.
I just hope they would use a good quality dash cam with high enough bitrate, high dynamic range, high light sensitivity and good auto white balance. Doesn't need to be 4k if those things are better than on other dash cams.

ASIC = application specific integrated circuit. Operation is hardwired and unchangeable, essentially.

Versus a general purpose CPU that runs software and can change its operation easily, essentially.
And if you want the customized performance and parallelism of ASIC but also the ability to make changes then you go FPGA.

Frequently the choice between an ASIC or FPGA boils down to the volumes you are going to sell. ASIC development is not cheap (think $Ms), so you'd better be selling a lot of product to make those ASIC development costs up; otherwise use an FPGA.

I don't have a clue what any of that means, but I agree. :pout: @Brainstorm69 you've never steered me wrong before, so I figure the odds are in my favor agreeing with you here.
