    What's new in this release?

    • New Ka-band alert sound
    • Band-specific bogey lock tones when alert sounds disabled (dee-dee-brap, dee-dee-brap-brap, dee-dee-snort, etc.)
    • Bogey lock tones and alert sounds will play when enabled in settings
    • Configurable V1 settings display tap, double tap, and long press actions
    • V1 Quick Change toggles instantly change V1 settings without profile push
    • Options for priority alert display of auto-muted alerts (the master setting is inverse of old setting)
    • Alert Recall (swipe left/right on empty area of alert screen)
    • Two more K-band boxes (five total)
    • Wake display option won't wake display when app auto starts with device in pocket
    • New "JBV1" night style for maps
    • New CSA alert map icons: Blue = unconfirmed, Red = confirmed
    • CSA alert highlighting: Blue = unconfirmed, Red = confirmed
    • Settings and other supporting activity screens re-themed to be more like alert screen theme.
    • Many Display settings regrouped into child screens
    • Marks now appear in overlay

    On the new auto-muted alert priority options (box, rear, side, time), if any disabled option matches an alert, that alert will not show in the priority display, even if an enabled option also matches that alert.

    Here's a video demo of alert screen controls. Movie making is not my thing (yet), so keep that in mind.

    What's new in this release?

    • Options for overlay double tap and long press actions
    • Options for mute (large speaker) icon double tap and long press actions
    • Option to disable connection recovery while moving
    • Overlay bogey counter color updated same as alert screen bogey counter
    • New pop-up alert screen alert map replaces full-screen (background) and inset maps
    • Aircraft detected by PAWS to be within 10 km (6.2 mi) are now shown on the alert screen alert map (if enabled), including their flight paths (if available)
    • PAWS filter settings simplified
    • Removed animations from alert screen updates to reduce update latency
    • Added animations to dialogs (because they make me smile)
    • Fixed some bugs with knob-muted alerts and knob-mute detection

    The new alert screen alert map for CSA and PAWS alerts has a "HIDE" button in the lower left. If you need to see info behind the window, tap the HIDE button to slide the window out of the way, and then a small map icon will slide up over the V1 settings area. Tap the icon to bring the map back into view. The map continues to update while hidden, but not when the app is backgrounded.

    The green (dark map) and blue (light map) circles on the map are in 1-mile increments, out to 5 miles. The orange circle is 1/2 mile, the red one 1/4 mile. When only CSA's are on the map, it will zoom to a little over 3 miles of forward range with your location near the bottom of the map. When aircraft and their paths are on the map, it will zoom out to around 13 miles of total range with your location in the center. Helicopters have a different icon that look like a helicopter (surprise!), and their paths are dotted instead of dashed. The faster a plane or helicopter is traveling, the more space between the dashes and dots. It doesn't vary the spacing along the path to show changes in velocity, it only reflects the current speed.

    What's new in this release?

    • Arrow style options for CSA, Marks, and PAWS
    • Speedometer color option (white, orange)
    • Option for control of auto brightness on/off (requires new permission)
    • Layout and style improvements
    • Fixed NPE crash on alternate landscape layout
    • Fixed CAI muting radio when muted alerts occurring under Silent Ride setting
    • Fixed initial volume bug
    • Other fixes

    PAWS has two data sources available now. The primary, default source is a different one than used in previous release, which is now the secondary source. When HD alert table is enabled, the alert screen will show two arrows for aircraft bearing and heading, on top of each other. The white arrow indicates bearing from you to aircraft. The green arrow indicates aircraft heading/track relative to your current heading. So if the aircraft is behind you and to the right at 4 o'clock and traveling along the same road as you, the white arrow will point to 4 o'clock and the green arrow will point straight up to 12 o'clock. On non HD alert tables, the first larger arrow is bearing to aircraft, and the second smaller arrow is aircraft heading/track.
