    HELP! ALP install errors/warnings

    Update: One of the sensor-to-HW4 cables was defective (I've read that the connectors aren't difficult to break when pulling through tight grommets but I was quite careful - another cable has a snapped connector so my guess is that it may have been broken upon removal). Replaced and sensors are...

    ALP + NetradarDSP, New Install "Radar Antenna Disconnected" error and Netradar not receiving

    Same issue here. All cables are connected correctly and don't appear to be damaged. Have tried flipping around the cable that connects the RG3 to the HW4 to no avail. Going to try fiddling with the settings next as discussed in this thread.

    Why run both Highway Radar and Waze for police alerts?

    Yep, in the works. I've slacked off a bit on my July timeframe for beta and am now hoping for alpha sometime next month. My team at work just launched a new product this week that we've been working on for over a year and a half so the last month or two have been a bit hectic.

    About Highway Radar for iOS and other non-Android platforms

    This set of APIs sounds to be exactly what ferius has already done. I'm integrating my app with his APIs to retrieve lots of data that enables the core feature set. I'd recommend chatting with him privately so as to ensure that you're note duplicating effort. It probably makes sense to simply to...

    About Highway Radar for iOS and other non-Android platforms

    Hi 812! Really awesome that you're interested in pitching in. I do hope that, despite posting this message here rather than in my existing iOS project thread, your wish is to pitch in rather than build a competing app. Competition definitely drives innovation, though I think teamwork is probably...

    Haha yeah, exactly this. I've said previously that I hoped to have a beta out by late July, and while I'd still love that I do recognize that I've taken a break that's going to push it back some. No promises at this point other than that it's staying on my radar and I'm looking forward to...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Yes and no. Both apps are being developed "natively" (meaning built specifically for each operating system rather than using shared - and so somewhat compromised - components). Android apps are written in Java and make use of Google's pre-existing code, while iOS apps are written in...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Long time no update! Things are finally starting to calm down at work (I'm back to my normal job and working on some final bugs prior to launch) so I'm planning on getting back to work soon. Just wanted to drop in to note that this project hasn't been abandoned. Things to do before late July...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    It's going to have to be a paid app, so I've been holding off with opening up a donation avenue in order to keep me focused on delivering. I appreciate the thought though! A number of users have asked/suggested it and I've been pointing them to @ferius' donation page in the meantime since the...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Thanks again for the support all. I'm moving from my normal back-end Java code to iOS development for a week or two at work starting tomorrow. I've never worked in our iOS codebase so maybe I'll pick up a trick or two! This project is still on pause given the fairly hard push towards launch at...

    Hello from NW Washington

    Still then plan! Welcome OP! Seattleite (maybe former, on a temporary-or-maybe-permanent sabbatical from Seattle right now) here; you live in an awfully pretty part of the state! Watch out for aircraft enforcement on I-5 and I-90. They set up a lot on the Seattle-Olympia I-5 corridor and I've...

    Already up and running! That was the easy part, haha. Great to hear! Apologies for the lack of updates. We're getting close to launch after a 1.5 year-long project at work, so I've been going pretty hard at that and admittedly don't really want to look at more code after work. Was hoping to...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Weekend Update (but not the SNL kind): logic to collate "current road" candidates complete, along with some basic "point to line" math to determine the closest road of the candidates. Need to add a bit more logic to be more exacting on choosing the correct road. Also managed to introduce a bug...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Not a bad thought, but that would likely actually make it more difficult/time-consuming to build. The easiest, most generic thing to do is just build a solution that works for every road regardless of what it is. Basically, it's "grab the closest roads, then determine which one I'm on."...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Latest update is a boring one. I'm still working on getting the road snapping working in order to appropriately display speed limits and alerts. So far the app is understanding what surrounding map sections to pull and is then pulling, processing, and organizing said data (as well as...

    Haha, I appreciate that! I wrote "Good news" and obviously that line was the first thing to come out of my brain. Glad some you got a chuckle out of it; I thought it might go unnoticed.

    HELP! ALP install errors/warnings

    All, going to do some debugging and get back to you. Thanks for the support! Not quite eBay, but a fella I spoke with who bought an M3 with it installed and didn’t want it. Could’ve been a scam but everything seems in order (and was acting as-expected until the reset). BRD, I did buy a few new...

    HELP! ALP install errors/warnings

    First power on, everything was good. After doing a "reset and learn sensors" I started getting "GPS antenna disconnected." I read on the forum that this tends to happen until you get your config set back up. Got the bluetooth module connected, successfully updated to 5.6.6, and used the...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Good news! The Dacia Sandero Ferius came in clutch with getting the decompression of road data figured out and I was able to get the rest of the type conversion stuff done. Need to do some validation, but the next big step is getting an algorithm in place to accurately determine user location...

    Official Highway Radar iOS app development thread

    Hey thanks for asking! It's still somewhat in progress. Heads are just double-stick taped on; need to get permanent mounts angled/leveled correctly and attached. I only did the front, so still have to tackle the rear once I have a plate mount. I'm also now getting "GPS antenna disconnected" but...
