First off, I’m a HUGE fan of Highway Radar. My thoughts arn’t criticism.
I understand more features make any device/app more challenging for the common user.

With the above being acknowledged, have you ever considered speed threshold voice alerts? I don’t need 1.5 mile voice alerts at 25 MPH. I do need 1.5 mile alerts at a... spirited pace.

-40 - .5 miles
-70 - 1 mile
-90 - 1.5 miles
-100- [emoji851][emoji41][emoji12]

I may be a little ambitious on fine tuning. Just tossing thoughts around.

We have quite a bit of control now, considering all of the programmable* parameters. But speed is not one of them. Maybe a "time to target" setting, based on the current speed would work. IOW, "I want 60 seconds warning based on my current speed."

*Anyone happen to know why "programmable" has two m's?

Yeah, I thought about calculating alert severity based on the time to target at current speed, it does make sense. I also thought about several announcement per alert (e.g full info 3 minutes in advance, a kind reminder 2 minutes in advance, and just PSL+confirmation time 1 minute in advance).
