    I just did a 5 hour drive and twice I got voice alerts for Ka Band that were deemed to be “junk” by my V1. The voice messages did seem to say they were “J” or “junk,” but got cut off before I could tell for sure. Is there a way to mute alarms and silence voice messages when I get a junk false?

    Yes and no. The V1 doesn't know it's Junk until AFTER it already alerted Ka (and V1Driver also announced it). The V1 will give you a Dee-Doo sound if V1 "changes its mind" (J-Out) and V1Driver will speak J-Out.
    You can shut off V1Driver from saying J-Out but if you have Voice on for Ka to announce it, it makes sense to get Voice telling that oh by the way that was not real.

    Under Voice Settings you can shut off "Speak J Out".

    If the V1 knew it was "Junk" it never would have alerted in the first place. But it takes time in some cases to figure it out. So it alerts first.

    This makes sense. This is the first time I’ve encountered junk Ka since starting to use V1Driver. Thanks.

    I run into junk Ka (33.6 to 33.75 most of the time) pretty often, comes and goes pretty quickly usually, with almost never any J-out from the V1.
