@ferius I've noticed that alert beeper for speed cameras starts at full alert rather than a gradually increasing rate as I approach the camera location. Is this how it is supposed to operate?
Also in maps mode the police alert beeper/arrow display starts at 500 meters no matter how many dots it is set to begin at.

For cameras this is expected. For police, could you elaborate a bit? Is the problem with beeper, with arrows, or both?

For police in maps mode, the icon displays as expected, but the beeper and dots/arrow display doesn't activate until 500 meters from the source even though it is set to activate at 3 dots.

For dots/arrow you mean this?

If yes, then it is only displayed when an option to Confirm/discard alert is active. It activates when you're within 500 meters from the report, and stays while you're within that circle and and 20 seconds after you leave it.

Regarding beeper sound I need to double-check that, I don't remember having any issues with it, but I'll double check for sure.

Yes that's what I'm referring to. I was misunderstanding the purpose of that display.
The beeper however doesn't seem to work unless I'm misunderstanding that setting too.

Guys, I've noticed over the past week or so that I no longer get weather displayed on my map. I do see the little black box in the upper right-hand corner doing its normal thing, but I've lost the weather display. Any suggestions?

Can I revert back to an approved build without losing all my settings?

Thanks.

The weather code hasn't changed, so rolling back to an older version won't help. While I'm fixing that, a temporary solution would be switching the weather provider to raw NWS data - you'll lose radar forecast, bit it would still be better than nothing.

Problems when try to "mute" or unmute an alert. Sometimes it takes about 10 seconds, sometimes just dont care about my push...
And i like better old version A,B and C profiles. Now i cant even figure out how to have them.

The slowness should be fixed in the next version. However, there may be a problem with the phone - some of them are just so slow that can't handle the HwR.
New profiles are a bit more sophisticated and have steeper learning curve. I'm preparing a bit article on how to use them.
"auto pilot speed limit 30" doesn't seem to belong to HwR at all.

Battery demand shouldn't change, the change is about responsiveness of the app.
