Good answers. Thank you. Mike V. is certainly unique and I get it. It’s his baby and his only product. That’s a pretty interesting business model and leads to exerting total control.MV believes what MV believes. He's entitled to, he puts his money and reputation on the line.
No one has to agree with him.
I originally used YaV1 because I was curious, and it gave me a simple way to get B/T communication with my helmet headset.
I got hooked on the advantages, and when JBV1 came along and matured it quickly became indispensable. On the rare occasions I use the V1 without a phone, it's not like being blind, more like being very shortsighted and with tunnel vision.
I'm at the point that I will not use anything else unless the cops come up with something dangerous that V1/JBV1 cannot detect.
And, a cheap android phone to get these advantages will not break the bank.
Still, other opinions may vary.
PS. JB is just one guy, he puts a huge amount of time into his app because he has always said he made it for himself and his needs. But it's amazing how he responds to feature requests, I don't know how he could do the same on more brands, with many more demanding users.
Does the phone need data connection or is it just running the app? It’s not the cost of a cheap phone I care about. Is the 40+ a month for the data
