Reverse engineering the radar detector Beltronics Euro 550 29th September 2010

My motivation for this R.E. project was that after several years of using my Beltronics radar detector it started displaing the following error code ?LO3 CAL? ?MARKERS?. Its warrany was well expired and I could not have it serviced here in Europe. I've also bought a cheap Whistler XTR-330 detector to replace my Beltronics for the time I was sorting this error out and I've regreted the buy the same day. The Whistler is more like a LED blinking / noise making device than a radar detector. Out of curiosity I've taken apart the Whistler too and you can spot right away the cheap chinese electronics.
