I’m all EYES!

Well just 4 eyes.

Can some of the tech people tell us what they see? (Internals etc)

Thanks for this video! I love that you went into detail about the USB-C port vs. RJ-11, how the headphone jack is also a microphone input, the improved GPS antenna, the display for international drivers who have right hand drive vehicles, laser detection, future-proofing, etc.

Mmmmm...microphone jack. Sure hope that gets utilized soon! Would love auto volume adjustment depending on ambient noise and voice control - "Hey Theia, STFU!"

The counter for laser detection sounds pretty cool. Great for people that have a hard time distinguishing what LIDAR gun a LEO is using. Even if it won't necessarily protect you, it can help educate you on what guns are being used and maybe influence what lidar protection you end up purchasing in the future.

Chiming in re: USB-C.

Please make the cord with an L-shaped device-end so the cord doesn't have to stick out far past the side of the device! 🙏
Nah, we are going to make it stick out for you so it is SUPER noticeable.

Thumbs up on the attention to detail with the GPS! Just brainstorming but, I'd imagine you could use the GPS data from Theia and push it to other devices for say, better navigation app accuracy? Perhaps, using WiFi or Bluetooth?

Anyway, looks like you're making great progress with everything and thanks for the video. :)

Plans to integrate the detector with ALP?

Theia will have both WiFi and bluetooth so you can do that if you'd want to. I think we would rather first try and do some track stuff with the data first though.

Love that we're moving on from RJ11. It's about time! The ambient noise is a brilliant idea. Can't even count the number of times I've cranked up my R7 to hear over the loud music, then later on get blasted when it's silent in the car.

Super excited for this detector.

Really liking the idea of automatic volume control! Not sure yet that I'd want to plug in a microphone for it, but not critiquing either since we probably aren't to that point yet. :)

I can't remember if this has been touched on in the past; similar to auto volume control, I'd love to see automatic variable dimming as a feature too.

With the proposed size that has been mentioned, I wonder if a bottom-mount bracket might help to get the detector closer to a headliner. I'd like to throw that out there. :)

Ooh that's a great idea! I was planning on getting a USB C hardwire cable run beforehand to get ready and installing one with a 90 degree bend to keep things more flush is a great idea.

Jon mentioned 3A going into Theia. Is it gonna be run at 5V which is the standard for USB in general or higher since USB C supports USB PD? I wanna make sure my hardwire cable is set up properly. :)

Looking closely at the motherboard, the headphone jack is behind the USB C port so if we wanna use that for a microphone or something in the future, we'd have to avoid bending the power cable back to cover that jack and I guess angle it up instead.

The detector won't actually draw 3a (it will still draw significantly more than any other detector), but that's what we are speccing the power cable for to have a lot of headroom under worst case scenario. It will be 5V and not require USB PD; we wanted specifically to keep it below USB PD requirements to make it more widely compatible and lower cost for the end user.
