    If I did auto purge it would very likely be optional and adjustable. I have considered it.
    I have another Idea that would reduce creating many one hit wonders in the first place.

    Hello, recently PA has begun to upgrade their ezpass system to make it nationally compliant (or something like that). As part of that they installed 3 lidar scanners to categorize cars in each ezpass lane. This is an issue I face 4 times a day.

    Due to this I would like to suggest the ability to lock LIDAR alerts

    Thanks....let me know what you think.

    It already has it. All forms muting (auto learn, automate and Savvy) of laser and KA are turned off by default.

    Just turn on what you want.

    As you know, I've suggested a few things but I understand you can't do everything at once and keep your wife. I'm sure we all agree that you've wisely prioritized improving core functionality with features such as K out-of-box, statistical tolerancing, auto-snooze. And I understand Ka out-of-box is on your radar. I assume the upcoming iOS 11 will also require some modifications and testing. So while we continue to add to the wish list, you deserve our thanks for a great product which you continue to improve.

    Even though I may look at a request as low priority if enough people request it, it automatically gets higher priority.
    A good example is the bogey list. I really still prefer bogey map but too many folks wanted the bogey list to ignore it.

    Some things are really easy, low risk, easy to test.
    Some add support issues.

    Like if I add Ka out if box, I'll might get emails asking how it works (rather than posting on a forum).
    Or they will have a problem and find out they set it wrong.

    So I often like to chew on things a long time and come up with something that is easier to understand or one feature might address several requests.

    GUI work is the most time consuming.

    A suggestion to make your life easier: a thread (perhaps closed) containing all the instructional videos and other explanatory messages organized for new users in 1 place.

    What ever I might do education wise would be within the app.

    1) Make it work with Apple Carplay.
    2) Would be be REALLY cool if it was possible to have the direction and frequency displayed when running maps... or just frequency..(but i know overlays on IOS is a no go )
    3) Have directional arrow in the APP in addition to voice.

    Those are 3 points i thought about in my 3 days of experience with V1 and V1D.

    #1 is not possible unless Apple hires me.
    #2 It does show direction. But adding frequency, yes. That needs work.
    #3 Not sure what that means but the default display does show “proximity” of threats. If you want a list of arrows you can change it in the presentation settings.

    I recently attempted to back up my database and accidentally restored instead. As a restore replaces the active database destructively, perhaps a confirmation prompt would be useful to prevent accidents.

    It does a confirmation on both backup and restore. It also checks there is something to restore before trying to restore it.

    I like to check the map while I drive to see if I'm in an area with known alerts. The trouble is, I like to see all the information that the alert page gives too.

    Is there any way to put a small map page in with the alert page so the user can check for upcoming pins?

    I was thinking of making the “Mute” button optionally the map when no alert is up. Alternatively when I do overlays, I might allow the same app overlay on the map. iOS does show an alert on the map. But I was never happy with it.

    I think that would be an elegant solution to add the map in place of the mute button.

    While we're here, is there a way to make the map have a night option like it does on google?

    I know the map has north up or heading up, is there a way to have the direction of travel up?

    I tried the map heading up but since I have my phone mounted to the windshield facing the driver, the map is always off by about 45 degrees.

    Very possible on Android and will be looked at when I add theming, but not easy on iOS (as of the last time I looked).

    Thanks for your quick responses. The more I look at the MUTE button surrounded by empty space, the more I agree with your thoughts about putting a map in that area.

    I thought of another one,
    A toggle on the alert screen that flips between the bogey map and the bogey list.

    I discovered the other day when the V1 said "7 bogeys" and was going nuts I couldn't follow along as well with the map they way I could with the list.
