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

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!
Can you post or send me a screen shot in PM?

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

I assume you mean the compass arrow on the top status bar. Mine is always on. And I don't do all that much.
But I must have 4-6 apps that list "location -> always" and background. Dropbox, Waze, etc. If you have any app that does this I think the arrow will be on.

Some apps that don't really need location use this mechanism to periodically wake Themselves.

You can read about this here. https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/209

So when disconnected from V1 it should use about the same battery as dropbox (idle, not uploading pics).
When connected to v1 it will use the same as a Nav app and depend if you have screen on and foreground or not.

Even when connected to v1 and in background it's quite good on battery. At least on a 6s plus it is.

Re: V1Driver iPhone/ios BETA Project - Version 1.29 is in Apple REVIEW

Oh sorry, I thought you meant a screenshot of the battery usage at the end of the day.

Yes, it's the compass arrow at the top and it's operating exactly as you described. The app has been active for the last 3 hours and hasn't registered in the Battery usage section for the last 24 hours. All good!

Cool. But keep one eye on battery usage on each release in case I introduce a bug.

Speaking of releases I figured out why the reviews keep getting canceled. If I upload another candidate for private beta it cancels the pending public beta review one.

So I'll stop uploading until this last one gets reviewed.

Check out screen shots and release notes in OP of what's new.

How do we know when the next revision is available to update the app?

The TestFlight app will notify us.

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

Installed v1.29. All good except any alerts I receive are not mapped; do they not map if they're (auto)muted for any reason, e.g. below Savvy set speed?

Correct they do not map if savvy kicks in. I've debated about that and for now that's the way it is. Minimize junk in the database.

New request:

One Apple ID email address per RDForum member. I'd like users to be "in touch" with what's going on with the app.

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

Well I guess I have to find my V1. Good thing I didn't sell my Rd. And to thing I was considering getting a Max360. Boy I miss those arrows. I may have to give my Max2 to the Mrs. And get rid of the Passport in her car. Lol

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

For the last 24 hours, I show 6% for the V1Driver that includes 9 minutes on screen. I did this as I wanted to look at the app but will now likely only run it in the background.

This compares to 3% use of EL with 1 min on screen and 30 min in background.

Re: V1Driver iPhone/ios BETA Project - Version 1.29 is in Apple REVIEW

Just installed 1.32. This app just is amazing and keeps getting better every day! I never knew how much I would appreciate having Savvy.

Speaking of Savvy, can the set speed input be a slider so it's a little easier to change? For example when going from highway to local roads, it can be dangerous to change it from 55 to 30 and I hope for a red light to make the change. A slider that ticks up and down in 5 mph/kph would be great. Heck, put this slider on the main screen since it's probably going to be used often.

And the small i that appears next to a pin's info doesn't seem to do anything; should it or is that an iPhone or Google Maps thing?

The i on the pin doesn't do anything yet.

I have a few cool ideas on "Interactive" use coming which will include a savvy slider.

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

Just tested a friends (cracked screen) spare iPhone 5. Worked perfectly even with no cell service. GPS locked quickly and just as accurately.
