    What's new in this release?

    TMG enhancements:

    • Overlay "K" and "X" colors match arrow colors
    • Overlay alert timer shows JTK time like a lap time (see video)
    • Alert log shows JTK time and mode for each logged hit (Killed, Auto sleep, Test, Receive only, in M column; see video)
    • Option for JTG in Test mode
    • Option to mute TMG CPU after connecting
    • Options for connection announcements
    • Multiple TMG device pairings supported
    • Speed-based Auto Defense Mode (NOT FULLY TESTED)

    You guys will be guinea pigs for the new Auto Defense Mode, which switches into and out of receive only mode based on your speed. I still don't have an installed system to fully test it myself. Watch it carefully and let me know if it's not working as expected. How it should work:

    There's a 6 mph (or km/h) spread (+/- 3) on when receive only mode (RCV) will engage and when your selected defense mode will engage. This is to prevent modes changing constantly if you happen to be driving right around the speed you selected. So if you selected 30 (mph) and a defense mode of AUTO SLEEP, JBV1 should engage RCV ONLY mode as you start driving, and it will engage AUTO SLEEP mode when you reach 33 mph. It will stay in that mode until you slow to 27 mph, at which point it will engage RCV ONLY mode. It will stay in RCV ONLY mode until you reach 33 mph again. Important: If you manually change the defense mode while Auto Defense Mode is enabled, JBV1 will change it back to what it should be based on your Auto Defense Mode settings. That's how it's supposed to work.

    What's new in this release?

    • Options for no rear/side/time mutes of white-listed signals
    • Option to view application logcat and send it to developer (use only when directed, please)
    • When speed limit units differ from selected application units, speed limits are corrected to application units
    • Support for latest TMG a-15 firmware
    • Alert screen and overlay icons for TMG now show red for RCV ONLY mode to indicate no protection
    • Bug fixes

    New TMG f/w support includes mute on/off. Unfortunately, it's not possible to read the current mute state of the TMG a-15, so if you connect to it with TMG already muted, JBV1 will show it as not muted and you'll have to toggle it twice to unmute. I decided this was better than always unmuting it after connecting. If you power off the TMG in a muted state, it will be unmuted on next restart.

    What's new in this release?

    • TMG custom auto sleep time option
    • TMG overlay displayed when app running in foreground
    • TMG bug fixes

    The "custom auto sleep time" works by toggling the CPU out of auto sleep mode and then back to auto sleep mode.

    In test mode, the overlay now shows a big "K" as soon as kill begins, then a big "X" when the kill has succeeded (CPU in receive only mode). In receive only mode, the overlay will show a big "X" immediately, to indicate no protection.

    What's new in this release?

    • TMG A-15 support!
    • Improved CSA Same Road Only algorithm (I think so, let me know)
    • Bug fixes

    TMG A-15 support notes: I just got the BT command data for volume up/down about 2 hours ago, so I was scrambling to revise the controls layout, add the commands, and test. The volume buttons are small for now, but I will improve the layout soon. As with the hard buttons, you have to wait after a button press for the voice report to finish before another button press will work. From the alert screen, swipe down on an empty space in the background to pull up the TMG control panel. You can adjust volume and toggle the RCV and SLP buttons. When JBV1 is in the background, a TMG alert will result in a full-screen overlay in red (front alert) or yellow (rear alert). You won't be able to touch anything behind the overlay while it's onscreen, so you'll have to wait for the alert to clear. If running in TEST mode (SLP button lit), you have the options of custom auto kill and sleep times. You may also tap the alert overlay anywhere for JTK before auto kill occurs. When the kill commands start (it can take more than one), the background arrow will be replaced by a big X. After an alert has cleared, the CPU will be automatically reset to TEST mode after your selected sleep time, unless you press one of the buttons during the sleep time (which cancels the reset back to TEST mode). Gun type is listed in the alert log when you drill down to a specific alert to see all its hits. If you see no gun type, then it was a V1 laser alert.
