    • ADDED option for alert screen alert map type (normal, satellite, terrain, hybrid) (display settings) (can cycle through types from the map)

    • FIXED reverse orientation logged as not reversed
    • FIXED overlay doesn't show user text for other and other2 mark types
    • FIXED box-muted alpha and punch through options disabled when mute OTB disabled

    Dongle-Specific Settings:

    When enabled, and JBV1 connects to a dongle, it will look for a settings file named the same as the dongle you're connected to. If it finds one, it loads it. If it doesn't, it creates it with your current settings. Any changes made while connected to the dongle will be auto saved to the dongle file when you disconnect. For offline editing of dongle-specific settings, you should first import the file for the dongle you want to change, make your changes, and then export to the same dongle file. I use this feature to have different audio settings in my car vs my wife's car (they each have their own dongle).

    Dongle Auto Start:

    Beginning with this release, dongles you've connected to will be listed in Connection settings > Dongles. When the main Auto Start option is enabled, JBV1 will look for dongles that have auto start enabled specifically for them. If no dongles are found (e.g. first time running this release), or none of the dongles are enabled for auto start, JBV1 will auto start on any dongle it finds. If one or more dongles are enabled for auto start, JBV1 will auto start only on those dongles.

    Master changelog for all releases.

    What's new in this release?

    • Ka Un-Mute Priority option
    • V1 Arrow Theme option (ORIENTATION [default, previous behavior], BAND)
    • Signal Graph Auto Scaling options
    • Frequency added to signal graph as blue line
    • Connected Notification option
    • Internet Check option changed to Internet Monitor (monitors when using data features)
    • 2/27/2019 camera database update
    • Ka Un-Mute Priority option, when enabled, will keep V1 un-muted whenever an un-muted Ka signal is present, even when a stronger, priority K signal is present and is being locked out or otherwise muted (except K muted). This means you would hear V1 audibly alerting to a stronger K signal after the K mute timer expires. Please note that V1's native K mute cannot be canceled early by an app.

    When BAND is selected on the new V1 Arrow Theme option, V1 signal arrows will be colored according to band:

    • Red - Laser, Ka
    • Orange - K
    • Green - X, Ku
