    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.

    What's new in this release?

    • Dongle type selection eliminated in connection settings (is now fully automatic, except that V1C Android dongles still must be manually paired to your device)
    • Car Audio Interrupt now has two options: 1) Play as Phone Call, 2) Play as Voice Prompt
    • Option to restore default settings (does not affect profiles, sweeps, profile override data, alert log data, lockout data, mark data)
    • After profile pushed, the mode change delay (when one is required) has been increased from 3 seconds to 10 seconds to better accommodate less performant hardware
    • Fixed a crash related to NOAA weather radar

    App now supports connections to multiple V1C Android dongles. Instead of trying only the first paired V1C Android dongle, it will try them all until it finds an available one. I tried multi-threading the V1C Android connection attempts so all could be tested at same time, but Android seems to queue the connection attempts and blocks on each one. This means the second, third, … , paired V1C Android dongle will take longer to find. At least you no longer have to unpair/pair to connect a different V1C Android dongle, right?

    Car Audio Interrupt in 1.1.6 and 1.1.7 used only Play as Voice Prompt. This method is less intrusive on radios that support it, and even though both radios I have to test on support it, it turns out that not many others do. So I added the Play as Phone Call option, which should work on any radio (or headset) to which your device is connected for call audio. If this feature interests you, you may want to have only announcements enabled in audio settings (disable bogey lock and alert sounds) to minimize radio interruptions. If you had this feature enabled before this update, you'll need to re-enable it.

    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
    • Changed "Dir Mute" memos to show either "Rear Mute" or "Side Mute"
    • Changed "Box Mute" memos to show either "ITB Mute" or "OTB Mute"
    • Bug fixes

    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 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.
