It has been voiced that lockouts are not what YaV1 is truly doing since the signal remains visible..... on the technical side, the detector still sees it will all models but just hides it with the exception of sweeps.

It has also been mentioned that we could keep the term if wanted as its not a legal threat.... but on the other hand... it might be "fresh" to change the name if we can agree on something that makes more sense and accurately depicts whats going on.....

Off the top of my head I came up with "geo-mutes" since its muting tied to a specific geographical location whereas simple muting is a silence or toning down function that's not tied to gps.

The term "muting" by some is interpreted as a reduction in volume while by others it may be complete silence which is a more accurate depiction of what happens.

Some ideas I can add and I'll try to keep this first page updated with suggestions. If we are going to change it, would be nice to do it quick otherwise it may be a wait as 2.0 is getting ready to be released.. Franky already mentioned he was cool with changing the name if everyone wanted to...

I'll get this started... if it turns out we want to keep lockout.. that's cool too. Its hard to get something to roll off the tongue as easy as "auto-lockouts".

Suggestions Instead of lockout... It probably needs to sound good after the word "auto" since we have manual abilities too.

This collection of votes will run till July 23rd, then we'll pick the top to put in a poll with "auto-lockouts" being a choice to keep. Well see if auto-lockouts can be beat as you'll only get "one" choice in the poll! ☺

I like the term lockouts and I'm used to it.

The V1 can be tweaked with custom sweeps, but how often do we refer to it as segmenting the V1? Band segmentation is Escort's name for it, but they seem almost interchangeable.

Lock out has a nice ring to it too. It can be a verb or a noun. :) You can lock something out, or use lockouts.

Since the whole legal consideration with Escort isn't going to be an issue, that takes that issue away as well.

So yeah, I like the word lockouts.

+1 I would say keep "lockouts". It's a nice, simpler word than auto-geo-mute and whatnot.

@Windstrings, I get where you're coming from with "Lockouts" not being an entirely accurate description, and I like your coined term "geo-mutes" (and have already used it :)), but I think that changing terminology completely would result in confusion.

ADD: A poll would be interesting!

Yup.. I would figure out an acceptable word if there was more concern for legal issues.. but since Francky is confident in the interpretation of the Patent,.. I think Auto-Lockouts is the best term to keep.

YaV1 is quite complicated as it is,.. we certainly don't need to add any confusion by changing terms people are already familiar with or can easily understand via contextual value. :)

Sounds good guys.... anyone feel free to continue to voice any feeling about changing... .but I wanted to give it a fair shake.... I too like lockout but I'm used to it big time... its mentioned 146 times in the manual and the word mute 86 times!.... lol!

We still have more time to decide until Franky is ready to call it..... I definately don't want to hold up things worrying about this... it sounds like so far the majority is to keep it how it is...

Going through redoing the manual... it would be quite confusing changing the terms as its hard to wrap your head around some of this stuff as it is!

Yea I would agree on changing some terms. Escort does it with their shifters.

None of us like change.. but "muteouts" is a better description of whats happening.... even though its not truly "out".

It doesn't "have" to change.. just was mentioned by a few that lockouts is more of a coined term by another company and doesn't accurately depict since we still have full visual.

Muteout sounds like something is being removed via a muting action... as thats accurate.... JMO.

But we can see the results for a little longer then make a decision...

Always tough to get a grand consensus on anything so whatever the decision I can go either way... not really an issue for me as I already understand.
But for the longevity of YaV1 and newcomers.. it is a bit confusing for them if they have come from Escort products to wrap their head around whats happening....

MuteOuts is the best suggestion thus far I think wind. It could work and wouldn't be confusing. But personally I would just prefer it as lockouts. Its easy and everyone knows what it means.

The term "lock out" implies potential DANGER to knowledgeable counter-measure freaks like us. "Muteouts" not so much.

which on is simple?... keep the same? or another?

Trying to keep a running tally on post#1, polls don't leave options for new additions....

If you are ok with two different names, your vote is counted in each section unless you retract.

I meant that locking out a signal exposes the user to a potential danger and requires extra caution while muting sounds relatively harmless. But YaV1 greatly reduces that danger. I just think "muteout" sounds weird and makes me think of the "muteout ninja turtles.
