dumb question but how does JBV1 know what the PSL is for a particular road?
And, if you find a road that has incorrect or missing info, you can log in to OpenStreetMap and fix it.
another stupid question. For JBV1 to utilize PSL data from openstreetmaps, the device needs data access, correct? It's not like JBV1 downloads the database to the phone, right?And, if you find a road that has incorrect or missing info, you can log in to OpenStreetMap and fix it.

I don't think that's the case with the R7. After using it for months with numerous encounters, I totally disagree. This is also dependent on every situation where LEO enters the Hwy or street at a perpendicular entry. However, I do agree that the V1 has a better linear ramp up. There's both positive and negative with the R7's ramp up. The positive weigh more than the negative to me. I look at it as locking an adversary at a longer distance. Unfortunately with the V1G2, the strength meter is only 6 compared to the 8 the G1 had. Look at the strength meter indicator of the R7, it's got more bars and colored threat differentiation. It also allows me to easily differentiate true K band signals from LEO vs BSM and auto door openers at muted audio alert. Don't know VR did that. Some V1 fanboys will say, you have to hear the audio or look at the phone screen. Obviously, it's a personal choice. Both will give you the protection you need as a "tool".Lack of rampup is my two biggest issues with the R7. The R7 has no rampup, it's either 1-2 bars or full tilt. The V1G2 seems to have excellent rampup. Too bad I have an iPhone.....
Thanks. What is everyone using for a data plan for a dedicated (read: not your daily use phone) android device in the car? I'm looking for the cheapest available solution. Either add the device to my family plan (verizon) or get a separate data plan from another provider.Correct.
To put things in perspective;
Even with all features enabled and using the most data possible (higher refresh rates), JBV1 still uses a only 25% more data than Waze for me.
The features and benefits of JBV1 have been explained ad infinitum. If you go onto the JBV1 section it'll be explained in detail by regular users. I really don't want to rehash all that in here.I really don't understand the reasoning behind this comparing it to the R7. Can you do a detailed explanation?
