    Re: Looking for iPhone Beta Testers for new App !!

    Just installed. I really like the simple interface and the focus on GPS lockouts. I am looking forward to testing it out, but it'll take me a couple weeks to build up a lockout database before i can provide any real feedback.

    Great news for V1 owners!

    Can you app developers please come over to Escort as well and help make an alternative to Live? All you guys have great ideas and implementation. Escort seem to be either naïve or deaf to its users requests regarding updating Live and updating some of their detectors. One thing is for certain, Escort is a slow as ice forming at updating it products and services. Escort customers need guys like you, Francky and the Escargot app developer making app for Escort too! =)

    Is there a way to turn off your savvy emulation, as I have a savvy attached to my V1. Will setting the Savvy speed to 0.0 km/h achieve that?

    Give it a shot and let us know! That's what beta testing is all about. ;) That may even work better, given that Savvy also works in tunnels and parking garages where a phone may lose GPS.

    Yes, just set it to 0.

    Actually that will be interesting to see how those work together. I may have to get one to make sure the behave together.

    I do my "own" savvy. I believe I could let the V1 do savvy emulation be telling it the Savvy Setting and Current Speed. I currently do not do that.
    It seemed kind of silly to have it do it, because it's basically doing an "if" statement for me. But there might be some situations where it makes sense.
    When it comes to priorities and other settings in the detector. And working more seamlessly with real savvy.

    It's up to you. I'm seeing there will be a wide array of users TMF1, Savvy, different devices etc. So the more the merrier.

    Every one that requested Beta should have access. If you don't, Post or PM me.

    I'd love to Beta test your app. Live in an area with lots of false K-Band alerts. Send me a PM. Thanks

    I assume your app still allows the V1 to sweep for all the same bands and your app just locks out false Ks for now? My area only uses K, Ka and Laser, would I be a good fit for the Beta?

    Is anyone else having problems getting their redeem codes to work? I have tried and it will say TestFlight not available, try again later, so I will then the next time it will say code is expired. What am I doing wrong?

    I just downloaded the app and installed the driver and all I'm getting is a screen that says BLUETOOTH Trying. It never connects. Should I disconnect the Android dongle in the car?

    You need to have the iPhone version of the dongle and it needs to be plugged in to your V1.

    Yes, just setup your Sweeps etc. with the V1 Connection. I don't do "In the Box - Out of the Box" stuff that other Apps do.

    Will this app create a national database?

    I had thought about a means of sharing. That would be way out and would probably require enforcement of standards that the data was collected. But it would be possible.

    In general though I'm most annoyed with K-Falses on repeat trips. If I'm traveling somewhere new it's not that big a deal.
    But if for example I bought a family member a V1, it would be nice to share the DB so they can skip the learning process.

    Re: V1Driver iPhone/ios BETA Project - Version 1.27 is in Apple REVIEW

    Yea, some potential problems with that are that each V1 may read a given freq a little different (34.568 vs 34.571) which would change the database accuracy.

    Also customized settings on one device may not be compatible with settings of another unless you "as mentioned before" set the database to gather most liberal collections to cover all settings.

    And like you said.. Enforcement of standards... When you allow manual input you then become dependent upon the skill and knowledge of the user as to trusting the accuracy of his input.

    While not a perfect system, it may still be worth it to give someone a head start if you have similiar settings .... Repeated use in the same area would finally iron out imperfections anyway.

    Sharing profiles would fix that "except V1 Readout variances", but most folks will not want all settings of one user to be imposed upon them too.

    [MENTION=8778]mswlogo[/MENTION] I'm really glad we have a dev working on this. It's exactly what I, and I'm sure others wanted.

    I noticed after I got to work the app was still using GPS. I also force-closed the app but GPS remained active. Is this using much battery? Would it be possible to add a sleep mode, similar to Waze?

    Re: Looking for iPhone Beta Testers for new App !!

    It uses significant change events on location when disconnected which is very low power use. It may not even need that any more. But it's running well and I'm afraid to drop that requirement.
    It helps keep it alive in background.

    How is it showing you "GPS is Active" on it. Are you talking about the icon on the Lock Screen?
    By the way you can shut off the whole background thing if you want in settings. But I've tested that a lot and it does very good on battery.
    There could be a bug that it's using accurate location while disconnected and that will chew battery.
    Watch the battery usage on the app and don't worry about it saying using GPS.
    If your V1 is powered and in range it will use accurate GPS location.

    How does this look for battery usage, this is overnight on battery with it running (in Trying to connect state).

    Yes, it shows the solid arrow. I'll leave the phone unplugged today and see how it does on battery and report back before I leave for the drive home. Thanks!
