Trying out V1G2 again and of course JBV1. So much more complicated than it was back in my V1G1 days.
Jbv1 can be confusing. Iv set ot up good for my needs but theres still settings that idk what to do with lol. My gen1 cable quit 6 months ago so iv been running JB stand alone and waze. Standalone is great and im seriously considering a R7 over a Gen2 to shy away from having jb up for short trips

Why do you feel like you have to go through and change every setting? If you don't know what a particular setting does, either leave it alone or ask for help.

I'll see what I can do about that for next update, but have you tried locking the orientation in Display settings?

It's been a long time since I've seen the default configuration of a freshly installed JBV1, but what I hear pretty often is that it's pretty much usable and safe to use "out-of-the-box" and then you can choose to add some data consuming features pretty easily. (CSA's, Weather, Aircraft, etc.)
Once you get a feel for what it's doing, you can explore the settings and read the info that is presented in each setting with a new level of experience.

There's a huge difference between tweaking a setting because you know what you are after, and tweaking a setting without context or understanding. Experience teaches better than anyone else's opinion. :)

There's still quite a bit that I dont quite understand what it will do if I change a setting and if it's not that apparent I just leave it alone.

Ask away! :) It helps us all when people ask about the options. :)

I do not feel i have to change or tweek every setting. Its great out of the box and as i learn i tweek it to my liking. Was just saying i havent learned what everything is nessasaryly.

When I was an apprentice mechanic, I was regularly told that if I didn't know what something did, to leave it alone and ask. It saved me a lot of grief.

In the beginning, JBV1 can certainly be overwhelming. The more you use it, and tinker with it, the more you learn. The people on the forum here are of immense help. If you don't know something, don't be afraid to ask.

The app gets better and more user friendly with each new update. Thanks JB!

The beauty of this app is that it'll work just fine without all bell's and whistles activated.
It took me 2 years to start using auto lockouts. Mainly because I didn't need them until then. Likewise with alert maps, I've just started using it full time recently.
It's like getting a new toy on a regular basis.
