This is not that easy to implement but this is still in my plans.Need to have integrated map that can tell the road you are on
Doing this with a high accuracy isn't really trivial, however I'll do my best to make this feature go live.just would like maybe the ones on my road to be say one color and ones off my road to be gray or something
I'm going to publish a version with adjustable volume today. Selecting a custom tone shouldn't be that hard to implement, will to to do something about it.Alert tone is attention grabbing but I can say with no doubt my wife would toss my phone out the window instantly if that was going off on a drive, it got to me after a moment too.
Interesting how this may work when there are tons of police around. I'll think about the best way of implementing this.and perhaps an option for voice alerts say every half mile leading to the threat ("Police reported in 1.5 miles", "police reported in 1 mile" etc as one of the optional tones rather than just a bunch of various forms of beeping?
This one may only work well if you add in the built in map feature, then it can call out the ones on your road and not the others... without the built in maps it's a little harder to use for the Waze alerts in my area as the roads are just too close together, but yes that is harder to integrate for sure. When I'm on rural drives it will be useful and for now I will certainly use it for aircraft alerts which is my main concern as I can deal with standard Waze for now, I just check the screen for blue pins ahead rather than waiting for the audio alerts as they are usually too late.
minSdkVersion 22Anyone know the SDK version on this? If it's low enough, I'll probably be running it all the time on my old phone (REALLY OLD!). I bought a phone mount for it and I used to use it for the first TMG update app but now it's no longer supported and it's sitting and collecting dust.
Well, setting an old device with this app as a second screen is the fairly legit case I haven't thought about (I use Android Auto as a second screen). Need to find my old HTC Desire with Android 2.3 on board for testing =)It's definitely below 20, can't remember if it was ICS (4.0) or Jelly Bean (4.3). Trust me, it's old
Is there a way to brute Force bypass SDK?
Tbh the tiny screen is perfect for displaying things on my small windshield. Kind of like Stinger with it's screenHmmm. I could dig out my Galaxy S4 for this, continue to use my Moto G5s+ for JBV1, audio and serving Android Auto, and use my Android Auto screen for VVaze.
Hm, that is strange. Was the LEO actually there? Maybe that was an old stale alert that already went away from the app but was still in the Waze application.Just installed and used it for a 30 mile trip. Daze alerted to a LEO but nothing popped on the app for that particular LEO. I did, however, see 2 alerts in the app for 4+ and 9+ miles away.
I really like this idea, thanks a lot! It is also important, however, to avoid it going to the foreground on some tough intersection while GPS is guiding you through it. Probably doing it only while you're going above low-speed muting threshold should help with avoiding such cases.One suggestion; while the app is backgrounded it would helpful if it could pop into foreground during an alert automatically to save fiddling manually with the phone.
