    What's new in this release?

    • Added CSA police report logging and heat maps
    • Added quieter volume level selections for bogey lock tone and auto mute
    • Added V1 legacy mode check and report (legacy mode not supported by JBV1)
    • Added A2DP connected/playing indicators on top of speaker icon
    • Updated camera database (26 June 2019)
    • Bug fixes

    Please note that, when enabled (the default), ALL CSA police reports in your vicinity are logged, even if you're not alerted to them (not ahead, not on the same road as you, whatever). I'll probably be tweaking the heat map representations of this data (blue) as I build up logged reports myself.

    When your device is BT connected to another device for media audio, you will see either a STOP symbol ( ▢ ) indicating audio is not streaming or a PLAY symbol ( ▷ ) indicating audio is streaming, on top of the speaker icon. I intended to make this optional but forgot. Will fix in next regular update.

    Alert Log Map

    One thing that isn't obvious is a change to the "HITS" button on the lockout info dialog that pops up when you tap a lockout marker. On first tap, it will drop markers for the most recent 250 hits in that lockout. A second tap will show the last 500 hits as a pop-up table.

    The Alert Log Map settings screen has a number of new options. Some of them are designed to control how much data is loaded into the map, mainly for older and/or less expensive devices that have much less memory and slower GPUs than modern flagship devices. When data sampling is enabled, the data used to create markers for "other alerts" can change as you pan and zoom the map, because the random sampling of hits inside the current map bounds doesn't return the same hits every time. Just an FYI.

    Dongle-Specific Settings:

    When enabled, and JBV1 connects to a dongle, it will look for a settings file named the same as the dongle you're connected to. If it finds one, it loads it. If it doesn't, it creates it with your current settings. Any changes made while connected to the dongle will be auto saved to the dongle file when you disconnect. For offline editing of dongle-specific settings, you should first import the file for the dongle you want to change, make your changes, and then export to the same dongle file. I use this feature to have different audio settings in my car vs my wife's car (they each have their own dongle).

    Dongle Auto Start:

    Beginning with this release, dongles you've connected to will be listed in Connection settings > Dongles. When the main Auto Start option is enabled, JBV1 will look for dongles that have auto start enabled specifically for them. If no dongles are found (e.g. first time running this release), or none of the dongles are enabled for auto start, JBV1 will auto start on any dongle it finds. If one or more dongles are enabled for auto start, JBV1 will auto start only on those dongles.
