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

    Awesome, thanks for your feedback.

    Anxious to see some others chime in. There are currently around 30 testers !! and I've only heard from half dozen or so.
    I can see from Testflight most folks have been updating on each release.

    About 6 others have never installed it. If you are out there having issues installing PM or Post.

    My buddy running it the longest gave it a great complement. "I would NOT be running the V1 without your App"
    I convinced him to dig his V1 out of the closet and upgrade it.

    He, like many friends, can't be having co-workers etc. in his care with the thing blaring unnecessarily.
    He can deal with it, if it's mostly right and point out to the co-worker that it just spotted a LEO over there.

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


    In addition to the Savy slider going into the Negative... is there a way to have it remember the last setting?
    Much of my driving is in slower than the default 20 and I'll set the slider to 15. Unfortunately, based on work, I do have to hard shut down the App / Phone. When I restart the program it is back at 20.
    While I've been using the program it just happens to be in one of my 'lesser driving' weeks. This weekend and onward I should be able to get out on it more.

    Only other observation, When I use the phone in portrait mode the 1st screen just overlaps all the text lines... more than like an aspect of the 6s+ but it is a 'Happy to Glad' type thing and if simply running the program in the background or on the map screen you wouldn't see it.

    You can set the Savvy Speed in Settings to what ever "Boot up" (Default) Speed you want. That is always "Saved".

    The Slider is an interactive override to that speed. By design, it resets to what ever you have set in Settings.

    You can set your default Speed High and slide the slider left as needed or set default Speed Low and slide it to the right.

    If you tap the "Savvy Override" text it will reset to your default value so you don't have to fuss with the slider to get it back to "Normal"
    It will remember your last override and if you tap the text above the slider again it will go back to your last override setting.

    When you disconnect from V1. It will, by design at the moment, forget what your last override was.

    So just go in settings and set it to 15.

    What phone are you using and do you change the default text size on the phone?
    Send me an image. I've tested a lot of combinations, but not all of them.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    A risky behavior of the stock V1 I noticed and now compensate for in V1Driver.

    If you are currently in say a K alert situation and you Mute the V1.
    And shortly after that you encounter say a Ka Alert. The V1 will not automatically UNMUTE !!

    This seems risky and a common case.

    Now I do have my Bogey Change Tone set to the Lever and have the Lever set low.
    You go insane if the Bogey Change Tone is set to the main volume or not set the Lever low.

    When V1Driver sees this situation. It will Unmute the Ka if it Automuted the K.

    Is this just the way the V1 has always been or have I set something wrong that would make it do this?

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

    I believe it will beep at normal volume for the new alerts but only once then back down to muted volume.

    ---------- Post added at 06:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:08 PM ----------

    So I just made a run with my phone in my inside jacket pocket and the Savvy setting worked great. I was wondering if it would receive enough GPS signal for speed but it had no issue.
    [MENTION=8778]mswlogo[/MENTION] can you add the ability to automute X band when it's only detected from the rear? This setting is in the V1Connection app for K band but is not available for X band.

    That's because you probably have Bogey Change set to Main Volume. And you are hearing a Bogey Count change. Which are annoying and get tuned out because the bogey counter changes all the time.
    You would hear no difference between a K bogey count change and Ka added to the mix.
    It should give a full Ka Alert IMHO. With V1Driver running it will. Or if it sees a new K that hasn't been locked out it would unmute as well.

    So far, so good. No crashes. What I have noticed is that SAVVY is not always accurate/sensitive. I have SAVVY set for 37.0 MPH. I will notice K-band going off even when I am at speeds of less that 30 MPH. Otherwise, it's great. I'm impressed on fast you get updates up and running. I do wish I could run the V1connect while running V1Driver but I cannot. That's probably the case with any app competing for the same Bluetooth dongle.

    Is the display showing you are under (Red) and K band going off?

    What is GPS Accuracy showing?

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

    That K band Rear Ignore feature is a Hardware feature in the V1 it's not a V1Connection feature, the app just makes it easy to set. I suppose it could be emulated in software too. I'd say probably.
    It could emulate most all the Hardware K band muting features.

    Keep in mind that I believe the reason it exists is due to the numerous forward looking Radar System on cars with Crash Avoidance systems.
    The Blind Spot monitors are mostly pointing rearward.
    For X band a Threat or False could be equally common front vs rear so I don't think it will buy you much. The risk vs reward is low on Rear Mute X (assuming you need X).
    Versus the risk vs reward on ignore rear on K band is fairly high. I normally have Rear K off. But with testing with my own guns I never know which side it will pick up and will often be the rear.

    Also with no App running and running V1 unhooked from bluetooth. If I start my K gun and manually mute the V1. Then click the Ka gun I get NO audio alert !! It's still visible on display.
    I have my lever as low as it go and bogey count tone set to lever.

    If I raised my Lever volume (Which I don't want to do because it would defeat running any app) or set Bogey count tone to Main Volume (which also partly defeats the app because it will be noisy) I'd get a bogey change tone.

    If you are going to bother running an app to make it quiet you should set the lever fairly low and set bogey count tone to lever.
    My app partly fixes this situation that if it muted K it will unmute Ka. But if the user muted the K it would not unmute the Ka.
    I hope to improve upon this and handle it if the user manually muted K as well.

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

    I have only been able to test this a few times now, I finally got my LE dongle replaced but everytime the app pulls up it says "Quiet" on the screen rather than "Savvy" etc.. that I have seen on some other screen shot. What are the possibilities that could be listed here when the app is running? I have to admit, this is pretty quiet but I haven't seen any markings on the map yet as I haven't exceed the Savvy limits I've set. May have to drop this down to zero to get a feel for the map. I do know the map is constantly twisting back and forth like it can't lock onto a signal but it is. More of an annoyance than anything.

    By any chance are you in "Little c" mode?

    I'm working on issues like that twisting map.

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

    Then I'd say drop your Savvy speed down and see if the app is doing it's thing.

    If Savvy is kicking in then it should say SavvyMute.

    Are you running with Hardware Savvy by any chance?

    Also check, is the GPS accuracy in RED. If it's RED V1Driver won't do anything if you don't have a good GPS Lock.
    You can crank the Accuracy "down" by raising the number of ft/meters it will accept up in the settings. But don't raise it too high.
    The Default is 50ft. A typical GPS should do quite a bit better than that.

    Go to a shopping mall or something and you should get plenty of hits.

    Are you running with two dongles as mentioned in the other thread?

    No, just the one dongle. I found in another post, it was not possible to run two dongles at the same time. I am running Hardware Savvy. I will try your suggestions and see what happens.

    If you are running Hardware savvy you need to follow extra directions. That explains everything. Read the release notes.
    You have to tell the software you have Hardware Savvy and this is very experiemental since I don't have Hardware Savvy yet. Ordered it Friday.
    I never heard back from the person that requested compatibility :(

    "Savvy Hardware Exists" and "Savvy Hardware Speed" were already enabled, but I will turn savvy down to zero anyway to test things out.

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

    Ok, those are big "details" you didn't mention :). There is a good chance it just won't work yet, you may be the first to try with Savvy Hardware. But I'll be testing it soon.
    The option that is very more likely broken is the use "Savvy Hardware Speed". If it gets no speed then it won't think you are moving. I suspect the Speed didn't change on the main display.

    That would fit your description.

    Try
    Savvy Hardware Exists = On
    Savvy Hardware Speed = Off

    If that doesn't work. Shut both options off and disable your Savvy Hardware until I can test it. If you want to get a feel for the software.

    Actually, now that I think about it, the speed didn't change on the main display. But I also never got a readout of any detections on the main display or map indications when I was under the Savvy speed either. Is that the reason it just said "Quiet"? Will try recommendations and see what happens.

    That option of use Savvy Hardware Speed Probably does not work (coding blind with no hardware ;)). So it ignores everything when it thinks Hardware Savvy is under control.
    So yes, because that option didn't work I think it's behaving as expected. Just set that "Savvy Hardware Speed" Off for now.

    Even with Emulated Savvy or Hardware Savvy you won't see anything on the map is Savvy is running the show. The Map only shows GPS Autolock outs. And it does not record them if Savvy kicked in.
    With the mode you where in because that option is not working yet everything was "Under Savvy Speed" no matter what.
