    Is there a way within V1Driver to prevent the V1 itself from visually displaying muted alerts?

    No. Personally I think it's risky. But it's still on my "maybe to do" list.

    I don't think you can in V1 Driver, but believe there is an "auto" function if you get a throw-away android. It's been a while since I used my android phone, but it may let you keep the display in a "concealed mode" if it is a muted alert.

    hopefully someone is using android that can answer.

    I would like to still have it display on the phone but keep the V1 itself dark.

    Under Hardware Settings you can try Auto Dark. If the phone is displaying then the V1 will be dark. If phone is not displaying then V1 will light up. This is regardless of alerts.

    Add a Concealed Display or cover the front of the V1.

    Ideally, I would like to have it visually alert for alerts that aren't locked out but not visually alert to locked out alerts

    @btmgov,
    I get what you are saying. Attached is a screenshot of similar settings in the app I use. It works well, but I tend to just want the unit dark.

    Maybe there is something similar in the app you use?
