I believe we can all agree that @johnboy00 has made JBV1 into an incredibly, powerful app, and I would like to first thank him for all of the time and hard work that he puts into developing it. While JB has put a lot of effort into making sure that it is clear what each of the settings does by writing a description for most of them, a user would still have to click through each one the settings to find that a given setting exists. Because of this, I took it upon myself to compile all of the settings with their listed descriptions, and added my own in some places, so that a user could read over all of the various options, and decide how to best set up JBV1 for themselves.

Attached you will find the PDF with a compilation of JBV1's settings, which I would like to thank @SquirrelMaster for making a clickable table of contents for in addition to the final touches.

Thanks for the detailed write up, that's an excellent "how to guide" for those trying to familiarize themselves with JBV1.

Tregar, that's really nice. Thanks for doing it.

A number of us have been hoping for something like this. I stopped updating JBV1 a while ago due to my lack of comfort with understanding all the changes being made.

@Tregar,
I'm way behind on this! I was reminded that you provided this resource a few months back. I've had a copy saved on my desktop since you wrote it but I keep forgetting that it's there. :)

I've skimmed through it just now and wanted to also say thank you for all of that work and effort!

Thank You...this is a great tool for a noob like myself with using JBV1 with my V1G2.

One question though...I see this was written for the 1.5.9 version. Are there any significant changes between this PDF information and the 2.1.2 recent update to the app?

Yes there are a lot of changes. I'm working on a comprehensive guide for JBV1 though and it will cover every detail of the app. No ETA yet as it's a large undertaking

Hi, you're welcome I hope it helps!

I would say that the newest JBV1 vs the version this was written for is different, with more additions having been made to the app since then. But for the most part this should give you a good idea of what the basic and even advanced functions are. On top of this not reflecting new additions to the app, I believe some stuff has changed location within the menu as well, however JBV1 now has a search function which should make finding those settings relatively painless.

I apologize for not keeping this up to date, but your inquiry has inspired me to review and update this. I expect I'll have a new revision by the end of the month (2 weeks) at the latest.

Thank you for creating this and periodically going in to update it as needed! It’s a ton of work, but it’s super helpful so thank you! :)

Seems like you two gentlemen can join forces rather than work separately on the same thing....

It took me longer than I'd like to admit to find how to set Alert Map styles (themes). I think this guide was written before these settings were moved into "themes", but it still managed to point me in the right direction. Thanks!
