    What's new in this release?

    • Improved signal graph visibility
    • Application auto start (V1C-LE only)

    New connection options, some of which (Auto Start, Use Wake Lock) are for V1C-LE only at this time.

    If you're going to use Auto Start, be sure to first disable any automation app launching of JBV1. How much battery is used by the Use Wake Lock option varies greatly by device. On my Alcatel 5044R, it only uses about 3% overnight. On my old Galaxy S5 Active (original battery, very old), it uses a bit more. With Use Wake Lock disabled, no extra battery is used if nothing else is keeping the system from sleeping, but auto start generally won't happen until some other event occurs (power connected, button pressed, BT connection to car). I don't see this as a bad thing for dedicated devices. I'll look into auto start for the non-LE dongle when I have more time.

    If you're not using any lock screen security, Wake Display will also dismiss the key guard.

    The Darth Vader voice (optional) is me, with some enhancements. :) I know it's a little cheesy, but I couldn't resist.
