    What's new in this release?

    • NOAA Nexrad radar imagery (USA only)
    • New alpha settings for rear and side mutes
    • Changed auto mute precedence to make time mute last

    NOAA radar imagery: If you live or drive in the western US where there aren't many radar sites, like some remote areas of Nevada and Wyoming, there may be places where you don't get a very good radar image–if you get one at all.

    Auto mute precedence: Time mute was moved to last so that it wouldn't always replace more significant auto mutes (box, direction).

    What's new in this release?

    • New display option, Rear Dark, keeps V1 display dark when a strong rear alert is present
    • New box option to mute ITB for Ka Low (33.8)
    • New CSA option to control announcements of multiple alerts
    • New CSA option to reverse geocode alert locations when road name is unknown (not provided by source)
    • New CSA alert sound option
    • Improved readability of CSA alert thumbs up and report age on main alert screen when HD display is enabled
    • Fixed CSA reverse geocoding bug when Same Road Only option is enabled
    • Fixed profile override area search
    • Other bug fixes

    I have begun working on weather radar imagery using NOAA Nexrad radar images. This will be a lot of work, and unfortunately will provide imagery only for the United States, Puerto Rico, and Guam. For those of you who managed to get API keys from WU before they stopped issuing free ones, the existing option should continue to work unless and until they turn it off (the keys, or the API itself).

    I also will be working on a day mode for the main alert screen and the overlay, for easier viewing in bright light.

    What's new in this release?

    • New connection option, Auto Connect, controls auto connection attempt when app started manually
    • Connect menu option replaced by button
    • Bug fixes

    When Auto Connect is disabled, the app will no longer try to connect to a V1C dongle when you manually start the app. This behavior is separate from, and does not affect, the Auto Start option.

    What's new in this release?

    • New option for manual/auto lockout indicator. When enabled, mute code "L" replaced by "M" or "A".
    • New option to disable auto learn of box-muted signals. If you use K boxes to mute likely BSM signals, enabling this will greatly reduce learned/learning lockout clutter where these BSM signals are frequently seen in the same general location.
    • New option for speed limit sign theme, no longer changes on English/metric setting.
    • New option to check internet availability on startup, with voice warning if not available.
    • New options for GPS-only overspeed warning, default lockout marker visibility on map, show speed in alert markers, disable connection lost chirp, disable Ka band disabled warning, and signal strength meter colors.
    • New markers and pop-up windows for lockouts on alert log map.
    • Lockout moves on map can be cancelled.
    • Box mute punch through and alpha apply to ITB + OTB muted alerts.
    • Battery voltage shown on standard portrait screen.
    • Fixed CSA time-to-target display bug.
