    What's new in this release?

    • Option to launch Daze* after connection to V1 (*Substitute W for D)
    • Alert log map fixes and enhancements
    • Fixed issue where lockouts with > 10 MHz tolerance could miss an alert frequency > 10 MHz from lockout frequency but within specified tolerance
    • Auto lockouts will now be deleted from database after unlearn count is reached (they used to hang around in case of future relearning)

    Alert log map enhancements:

    More info has been added to lockout markers, including created date, last seen date, and last visited date. There's a new menu item to toggle visibility of lockout circles. Long pressing an alert marker title will isolate that alert and any associated lockout for better visibility. This means that all other markers not related to the alert whose title you long pressed, or its lockout (if any), will be hidden on the map. Example (in thread)

    • Auto start for V1Connection Android (SPP/non-LE)
    • Auto start improved for V1Connection LE

    • Option to not show disconnected icon on status bar when auto start enabled and JBV1 not running
    • Option for 125-meter lockout radius

    If you're using auto start now, updating will kill the auto start service. After updating, you'll need to manually run the app once, or restart your device, before the service is restarted.

    What's new in this release?

    • Improved signal graph visibility
    • Application auto start (V1C-LE only)

    New connection options, some of which (Auto Start, Use Wake Lock) are for V1C-LE only at this time.

    If you're going to use Auto Start, be sure to first disable any automation app launching of JBV1. How much battery is used by the Use Wake Lock option varies greatly by device. On my Alcatel 5044R, it only uses about 3% overnight. On my old Galaxy S5 Active (original battery, very old), it uses a bit more. With Use Wake Lock disabled, no extra battery is used if nothing else is keeping the system from sleeping, but auto start generally won't happen until some other event occurs (power connected, button pressed, BT connection to car). I don't see this as a bad thing for dedicated devices. I'll look into auto start for the non-LE dongle when I have more time.

    If you're not using any lock screen security, Wake Display will also dismiss the key guard.

    Wake Display

    The Darth Vader voice (optional) is me, with some enhancements. :) I know it's a little cheesy, but I couldn't resist.
