    I am new to the V1. Just picked up a complete package with V1, Saavy, and iOS dongle. Should I run Saavy along with V1Driver or should I not? Are there any pluses to running both? Any minuses to running both?

    SAAVY will work in places you don't have GPS (like parking garage), or before your phone has a GPS fix, but will mute all bands. The apps allow selective speed muting by band.

    If you have a good GPS signal, SAAVY hardware is essentially superfluous but V1D recognizes it and enhances its capabilities. I wouldn't spend the money on it as I'm almost never without GPS and software SAAVY works well.

    I like the idea of being able to low speed mute only K and and not Ka. It would be great if my R3 had selective band low speed muting like that.

    There are tradeoffs. You have a good detector but none are perfect (although some are perfectly crappy).

    I use a Savvy with JBV1. I have a dedicated device but I don't run the app if I'm in parking lot going from to store to store. Plus it's an easy hardwire option for your V1.

    Hmmm, I never saw mention of JB even having a Hardware Savvy to properly program it and test it to be compatible with his app. Perhaps I missed it.

    If an app isn’t specifically designed to work with it, I’d suggest not running both. You will have conflicts. You are essentially getting the worst of both.

    V1Driver will auto detect it, program it and use speed from the hardware Savvy. It was quite a PITA to support but works well on both platforms.

    I meant to say I use them both. Not so much as use them together.

    That’s a good question.
    That is a feature that you can “teach” V1 what Savvy setting you want by your location.

    Lots of folks turn Savvy up on the highway. If you have that on, and turn Savvy up it will drop pins along the road that will tell V1Driver to set Savvy to that speed the next time you visit.

    You must have that option off for it to use those “Savvy Pins”

    There is a shortcut on the main screen to flip that same switch and feedback when it’s on.

    See this video.
