    Enhanced - Fine tuned the graphics on the Bogey Polar and Bogie Map views.
    Feature - New option in AutoMute settings called "Auto-UnMute V1 KMute". Basically it makes the V1 KMute feature safer to use by unmuting when V1Driver thinks it should. Read the TIP for more details.
    Tweak - Slight change to handling a BT Scanning error.

    No Crash logs for the past few releases.

    iOS
    Enhanced - New Bogey View Style called Polar. See the Tip for more detail. Try the Demo in the different Views.
    Enhanced - You can now control Frequency Display on Bogey Map (Show it at all or number of Decimal Places) This helps cut down clutter on the Bogey Views.
    Tweak - K Band Spectrum Coverage bar drawn slightly better.
    Bug - Ramp Indicator was not updating as often as it should have.
    _________________________________________________________________________________________
    The new Auto-Unmute Feature is not in iOS yet, it's a bit more involved. It will come though, assuming it works good. The new Bogey Polar View is in though.

    This new Auto-UnMute V1 KMute feature is tricky to understand.

    If the primary reason you use KMute is to take advantage of KMute bridging the "BT Mute Lag" with Apps this option is for you.
    If the primary reason you use K-Mute is it's affect on BSM you probably DON'T want to use this.

    With this on, you are running MORE conservative (potentially more BSM alerts, but pure silence on everything that is supposed to locked out).

    Basically the KMute acts as a "Pre-Mute" for all K Alerts. What V1Driver will do is IMMEDIATELY unmute all Kmuted Alerts UNLESS it knows it should NOT (like gpsMute, AutoMute or Savvy).
    This works so well you can Turn OFF the two extra switches that the V1 will unmute itself if over threshold. No need to do that, V1Driver will Unmute it for you, unless it knows it should be locked out.

    So basically, all gpsMute, SavvyMutes and Auto-Re-Snooze will be 100% Silent (with V1 KMute UnMute Switches OFF) on the V1 every time.
    And you essentially have no KMute "PreMuting" on any potential threats. It's the Best of BOTH !!

    This option essentially moves the "BT Lag" of Muting to the a BT Lag of "Unmuting". If you have KMute in V1 Off this option does nothing.

    If you depend on KMute to keep BSM's in check you'll get more of those. But AutoSnooze should take care of those (AFTER you've been alerted).

    I could also allow the KMute Timer to be any value up to 30 seconds, not limited to 3, 5, 10, etc. But to me the most useful would be having selectivity below 3 seconds. Like 1 second KMute option (V1Driver would unmute after 1 second).
    So essentially V1Driver right now has implemented a 0.2 Second Delay KMute option (i.e the lag time to unmute).

    Nice k-Mute option!

    My issue with K-Mute Lags is a few shopping centers that have multiple K signals. I get the Bogey lock sound audio punch through now before V1 Driver can mute it. Will this new K-Mute option work on the bogey lock audio as well?

    I recommend users set the bogey lock tone to LEVER for the very reason you describe. V1Driver will even pop a warning if you don’t set it to lever. It’s annoying as heck. V1Driver will unmute when appropriate (even without this option). So the bogey lock tone is nearly useless.

    Unless you live in the sticks, set it to lever. I can’t vouch for how well other apps do at unmuting. V1Driver will even unmute a 2nd K after auto muting a prior K that is still present.

    Keep in mind though you may have a strong K that is muted for what ever reason and a weak Ka triggers an unmute. The V1 alerts with the tone of the strongest signal. So sometimes you’ll hear K tones from V1 when it was a Ka that triggered it to unmute. But the Voice will say Ka and tones out of V1Driver would be Ka (if enabled).

    I have bogey lock tone set to lever and I still get punch through of audio from your app (before new update) and others. Sure would like to not hear that silly tone.

    Thanks!

    You mean you hear bogey lock tones while V1 is muted or unmuted?

    If bogey is on lever (and obviously lever is way down) and V1 is muted (typically from savvy or gpsMutes on shopping center) then you should not hear bogey lock tones.

    Do you have KMuting enabled? Keep in mind this new option is more conservative (it will sometimes unmute kmute sooner).

    I use to hear bogey lock tones for a spilt second or so before the App could mute it.

    Took a drive just now with your app updated and I heard no lock tone! Great addition to your already great app! Nice work!

    I don't know when the last time you updated but there has been other work done in prior releases that may have solved your issue.

    But this new release would not solve that problem.

    I also came to report my new "AutoUnMute V1 KMute" option is not working as intended, stay tuned :(

    Beat me to it on the K unmute, I noticed that this morning but my testing was limited.
