    What's new in this release?

    • Auto Mute options to enable Silent Ride by band
    • Audio options to announce alerts that begin muted but are later un-muted (Ka, K, Ku, X)
    • Audio options to announce alerts only if white listed (K, Ku, X)
    • Overlay flick to center positions
    • Custom toasts reverted back to standard toasts

    Important: Previous versions had one Silent Ride option for Ka that would exclude Ka-band alerts from Silent Ride muting when enabled. There are now Silent Ride options for all bands, and you must now DISABLE the option to exclude that band from Silent Ride muting.

    I reverted the alert screen toasts back to standard toasts because of some crash reports that had the Toast class, but not any of my application code, in the stack traces. I don't recall having seen the errors before customizing the toasts, so I changed them back to standard toasts to see if the errors disappear.

    What's new in this release?

    • Initial production release
    • White-listed signals announced as "white listed"
    • V1 display options Auto Dark and On/Off consolidated into V1 Display Mode option [ OFF, ON (default), AUTO ]
    • Sensor Dark option keeps V1 display dark in low-light environments (affects ON and AUTO display modes)
    • CSA alerts in overlay show road name instead of "POLICE"
    • Overlay may be flicked to other corners, for when you need to see and/or touch something behind it

    If you use the Auto Dark mode like I do, you need to go to the end of the Display settings page and select V1 Display Mode = AUTO.

    The Sensor Dark option works with display modes ON and AUTO. When enabled, and while the light sensor on your device indicates low light, the V1 display will switch off (if it was on) and remain off, even during non-muted alerts. When disabled, or when enough light detected, ON and AUTO display modes will function normally.
