@200V, thanks for your feedback!

Map display and Normal display work as expected. Compact Display looks just like Normal.
Are arrows colorful? I thought they have to be always white until Android 5.1.

The difference start showing once you have an alert with sound. You can check screenshots in Play Store.

I could not get multi window to work. App did not show in Samsung multi window menu (neither does waze or Escort ).
As I remember Android 5.0.1 doesn't have multi-window support and Samsung uses their own hack there that only works with Samsung apps.

Some non Samsung apps work in multi window. I have Skype and Trip Advisor going now. But, you have to place them in the Samsung multi window menu first.
The S4 works great for a dedicated screen for CM apps.
I read somewhere that an app needs a flag set to show as multi window capable to the Samsung ui.

I meant Samsung or "using Samsung-specific API" apps.

Tried it today. Amazing for a first release! Love the sound, miles away and minutes reported ago!

Is it possible to add some kind of zoom : In and Out for the map? Thanks. Me and our forum members look forward to your update for this sweet app! Thanks as always. You're awesome!
Or, when the alerts on map get close over ride distance settings and zoom in are so you can orient?
I have distance setting set to 3,3,3 miles.
When you get close to alert site, you are ‘on top’ the site and can’t see anything.

Yes I am. Will be working on it all next weekend and hopefully parts at a time during this week.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I travel to Washington and have personal experience with VASCAR. This is the last thing I need to nail down to have a little more peace of mind when travel in that state.

I would gladly pay for this app.

Is it possible to have this app override CarPlay when an alert happens? For example, when I plug into CarPlay, my iPhone screen goes blank and CarPlay takes over unless I interact with my iPhone. I would like to not run a second device.

Just released v1.1 to the Play Store

The main feature here is support for a secondary aircraft data source (there is an option for this in preferences).
Note that entering flightradar24.com may violate ToS of Flightradar24 and use their aircraft positions in the application ;)

Also fixed couple bugs in the app.

P.S. How to remove an option from the poll? Don't see any way to do this.

The website says there's a secondary server field in settings but I don't see it. Am I missing something?

Play market needs some time to push a new version to your device, it doesn't happen instantly. Once the app is updated you'll see this option.

I made my run today and got great warnings (need to tweak distances a bit though) of the speed traps but I noticed there were no popups/overlays for the alert while I was running Vaze.

Is that a Samsung/Android 9 thing?

Otherwise, this is already shaping up to be an awesome app. I wouldn't think of leaving home without it if I was heading out without my V1...

May be either. Android 9 may think that you don't want to receive alerts now, Samsungs are often completely unpredictable on what they're doing (I know this since I have S8 =).

Also alerts are always suppressed in "don't disturb" mode.

If you do voice alerts, could it please be optional? My Net Radar voice alerts can't be turned off and it's annoying.
Love the app. It's a huge improvement over Daze alone, although I still run them together in split screen so I can make reports.

Definitely. I'm trying making all new features optional.
