Thanks. Good advice.

As for the USB question, I'm used to connecting my V1 through an RJ11 cord to power (usually in the rear view mirror). But in the Theia Q&A (sorry, can't find it now), they say an RJ11 draws insufficient power, so will need a USB connection. Not sure how that works.
Correct, the RJ11 wiring, plugs and connector standard's will not allow enough current for the Theia.

What this means, is you use the cig lighter cord they provide with the detector, use a higher amperage usb phone charger, or use a hardwire kit (when they come out) to power the detector instead.

It's just a new standard is all

Is that a removable targa top? Or is the C8 convertible a folding hard top and I just didn’t realize it?
The hard top convertible. Targa roof is a feature of the coupe.
