What's new in this release?
  • GPS icon removed in favor of a simpler textual GPS status indicator
  • V1 display icon relocated to upper right of screen, near where the GPS icon used to be
  • V1 display icon lights up red while V1 display is on, shows "R" or "S" when display is off because of Rear Dark or Sensor Dark, respectively
  • TMG icon relocated to bottom left of screen, where the V1 display icon used to be
  • Options to limit the number of alert table rows for each type of non-V1 alert (all alerts still mapped and/or announced as configured)
  • Options for larger map arrow and to have your location be at the tip of the arrow instead of at the center
  • Option for tail numbers on mapped aircraft
  • Option to exclude from overlay K- and X-band alerts muted by Silent Ride
  • Added "QUIT (HOLD)" button to pop-up settings dialog
  • CSA settings reorganized
  • POI factory RLC and speed camera at same location are combined into a "Combo Camera"
  • Map auto zoom for aircraft zooms to closest threat instead of always zooming out to ~10 miles to nearest edge
  • When CSA and/or mark alerts are ahead, map auto zooms to closest CSA/mark, regardless of nearby aircraft
  • RG road detection improved to reject cross streets
  • Mark alert ranges include time options for automatic, speed-dependent alert ranging
  • Green time option for new, non-V1 alerts
  • Launch other app option (currently Waze or Maps, when installed) replaces launch Waze option
  • Removed fused location provider option (because it sucks)
  • Other tweaks and fixes
  • 18 Sep 2019 camera database

"Added "QUIT (HOLD)" button to pop-up settings dialog"

Woo Hoo ! You beat me to it. I was going to suggest that option in the exact same place you put it.
Sounds strange, but I was having a hard time getting the App to close. My alternate option was a pull down from the top of the screen.

When JBV1 is brought to the foreground by an overlay tap, the back button takes you back to whatever was in the foreground when the overlay was tapped. This is to allow easy switching back and forth between JBV1 and any other app. When brought to the foreground by the launcher icon or notification, it will then quit on a double-press of the back button. That may seem like too much trouble, but I don't want to sacrifice easy task switching for easy quitting. Hence the QUIT button.

Was this the feature I asking for? If so, when I drive past my muted speed will the alerts show in the overlay?

You don't remember what you asked for? :)

When you exceed your Silent Ride setting, alerts will no longer be muted by Silent Ride, so... yes.

I remember and thank you. Now the alert screen won't be cluttered in shopping centers.

To be clear if I have the slider to off (left) then the alerts won't show?

The overlay won't be cluttered. The alert screen always shows everything.

Yes.

Wow! Lots of interesting stuff going on here! I am still in the middle of looking through all the settings but I'm excited by what I'm seeing Johnboy00!

Adding the auto start of Maps is a nice touch should we start seeing equality of reports on Maps vs. VVaze!

Just to let you know I like the new CSA alert graph a lot instead of the bar.
Was freaking out a little this morning thinking something was wrong with TMG since I couldnt find the alert circle on the screen, lol. Then halfway on my commute, "Oh there it is!"
