Is there anyway to change colors of the arrows depending on the band. I would like to have Red for Ka, Yellow for Laser, Blue for K and Green for X.

There's currently no way to color the arrows, but it's something we can look into if you want to post the request here: https://yav1dev.atlassian.net

What you can do in the mean time is color each signal for the list view based on band using the box settings.

YaV1 Settings | Frequency Boxes | Enable boxes | Define a box for each band and select the color you want.

I have watched Votex video on programming YaV1 and he has given 3 frequency boxes for Ka but nothing for K and X band.
What frequency boxes does others have set up for K and X bands,

It seems that the YaV1 has 4 predefined frequency boxes for K from 23900 to 24250 and X from 10490 to 10570.

To color code entire X or X band do you just simply change the background color for each frequency box?

Thank you any help,

I have X disabled on my V1 as it's not used in the areas I drive (basically it's only used in OH and NJ).

For K I have a box for 24075 - 24198 that is colored red and I mute out of the box, along with a 3 second K-band muting of signals that are < 5 to help suppress BSM systems. You still get the visual alert to what are likely BSM falses, or an audible alert and red color if it's more likely a true threat. It's not perfect since K-band is so polluted across the range but it helps. Police K-band can be anywhere in the spectrum of 24.000 - 24.250GHz, but their guns are centered on 24.125 and 24.150 from the factory (and unfortunately may drift).

I do something similar for Ka-band where I create a box for 33750-33850, 34650-34900 (which reportedly drifts high), and 35450-35550 colored red, use a voice file for each of those boxes to anounce it's center frequency, but do not mute in/out of the box. This way I always get an audible alert to Ka-band, but if I hear the voice announcement I know it's close to the center frequency (33.8, 34.7, 35.5GHz) and is likely a true threat and not a false from a leaky nearby radar detector. Unfortunately I've been seeing a lot of 35.46x falses lately, so I might bump that box up to 35470 or so.

For the coloring you'll need to define a range for the box.

Thanks for the info Mike. I used the entire predefined range for K and used voice file "k band".(an old escort user)) and color coded match my LED. With your info i can now narrow the frequency box for k band.

Thanks
