Yep. I said it. Apps are bad! Why? Because the increase of SO's Significant Other's Situational Awareness.

Just drove from Northwest Indiana to St Louis. As I do before any trip, I usually review my JBV1 settings before I go on a trip. Since I’m a PSL+10 driver, I thought I would set the GPS Overspeed setting to 90 (70 PSL + 20) for the rare occasion that I might go that fast.

After getting on I-57S, I hear my first “GPS Overspeed”. I was passing a truck at the time. My wife asks me what that announcement was, and so I explained what it was. Unfortunately, it continues to go off over a two dozen times for the next two and a half hours, and each time my wife would say "Aren't you going a little fast?"

So I said I needed a break and some more gas to get to St Louis. So while I pumped gas and she ran into the gas mart(?), I quickly turned that feature off.

Needless to say, we aren't on the road too long before she says " you turned that warning off, didn't you". Busted. Ha ha.

On the other hand, she's very good at finding the wolves when I know they are near but I'm more focused on the driving conditions. So I'll keep her.

@JohnBoy: multiple CSA saves while \/\/aze was completely silent. Thanks for a great app.

The app spelled funny above does not allow for outside apps to use their database. Calling it by a code name has been requested by @johnboy00 to keep it from showing up in Google searches and pointing back to him. Rather that request is warranted or not, it's something we do to honor his wishes and done as a thank you for creating an awesome app for free. Unfortunately, the concept does drift outside of the JBV1 section which complicates issues for our forum administrators. It's a bit of a catch 22.

[Edit] What @dchemist said.

If we told you... :)
As I understand it, the attempt was to keep the association between VVaze and apps loose so as not to potentially upset VVaze.
It was conveyed to me early on and I've tried to respect that concept because I personally don't know how much of an issue it could be and I don't want to be responsible for messing it up for others.

Got it. I can understand in particular where problems could arise, it just never occurred to me who we were trying to protect and why obfuscation was necessary. I will do the same.
