About this app

Now supporting V1 Gen2 volume control (requires f/w 4.1027+) and OBD-II speed input!

JBV1 is the ultimate companion application for Valentine One® and Valentine One Gen2® Radar Locators, and V1 drivers wanting unrivaled situational awareness and threat filtering. In your pocket, on your dashboard, or anywhere in between, a device running JBV1 adds the following capabilities for POWER users:

* Simultaneous display of frequency, signal strength, and direction for all located radar threats
* Voice announcements of box/band/frequency and direction of new radar threats, so you can keep your eyes on the road longer
* Alert hold times for easier identification of brief alerts
* Tracking of distance traveled or time elapsed since threat first located
* Real-time graphs of signal strength and orientation over time
* Alert snoozing to ignore a specific frequency regardless of location for up to one hour
* Background operation provides alerts in an overlay on top of any other application
* Alert logging with reports by day, time, and alert
* Display of logged alerts to Google Maps (requires Internet access)
* Profiles for V1 settings and custom sweeps/frequencies
* Automatic, speed-based V1 mode control
* GPS-based lockouts of known false alerts (including Laser), while alert is displayed or later from your living room or office
* GPS-based profile overrides can change V1 settings automatically when you travel into or out of geographic areas you define
* GPS-based marking of red light cameras, speed cameras, and anything else (Note: JBV1 includes a database of red light camera and speed camera locations for the USA and Canada only)
* Mark warnings show type of mark, distance to mark, and precise bearing to mark
* Fine-tuning of lockouts for optimal location, radius, and frequency tolerance/drift
* Silent Ride automatic muting based on speed and, optionally, speed limits
* Auto dark mode keeps V1 display turned off when no active alerts are present
* Displays GPS-based digital speedometer and compass
* Optional weather radar images on alert screen background
* Displays critical V1 settings so you won't forget which bands are enabled or disabled
* Configurable frequency boxes with In-The-Box and Out-of-The-Box muting options
* Automatic time- and GPS-based lockouts
* Automatic application start on detection of V1 Gen2, V1connection, or V1connection LE
* Multi-window compatible
* Backup/restore to/from Google Drive of database, settings, profiles, and sweeps
* Optional command and control of TMG a-15 Laser Defense Systems, with alert logging
* Optional speed input from OBD-II interface (OBDLink LX/MX+ recommended)

JBV1 requires an ESP-enabled V1 (Bluetooth dongle required) or V1 Gen2 (Bluetooth built-in) Radar Locator.

For V1s prior to V1 Gen2, JBV1 also requires one of the following Bluetooth adapters in order to talk to your V1:

* V1connection
* V1connection LE (recommended)

Both of these Bluetooth adapters are available from Valentine Research Inc.


* MODIFY PHONE STATE is used only to enable your device's speakerphone in some "force speaker" use cases.

* READ PHONE STATE is used only to detect when your device is in a phone call, for improved suppression of alert audio while in a call. No information about a call is ever read, saved, or transmitted.

* RECORD AUDIO is used only for optional voice control.

JBV1 includes an optional Accessibility Service that is used to provide the following optional automation:

* Splitting your screen after app startup or with voice control (Android 7+)
* Locking your screen during app shutdown (Android 9+)
* Taking a screenshot with voice control (Android 9+)

This Accessibility Service is not required and is disabled by default.

As everyone has stated, this is a must have for anyone with a V1G2... It really unlocks its full potential and filters out so many false positives. It's awesome, I have it setup so I don't even need to do anything additional either as soon as my phone connects to my cars bluetooth it connects automatically and it launches the app simultaneously. Thank you JB for an amazing somehow free product. I would definitely pay for this app without thinking twice.

This app is amazing! I went on a road trip this weekend and used this app. Not only does this work flawlessly with my V1, but it also regognizes the route that I plugged into Waze. On top of that, it save me severe weather tracking on the top left corner of the app. I saw where all the thunderstorms were at. The only thing it doesn't do is drive the car for me. Awesome app!

JBV1 is an outstanding app from an incredibly supportive developer! Without question, you owe it to yourself to make this app a part of your everyday driving experience. JBV1 is best when paired with the V1G2 detector, but works incredibly well in standalone mode as well. It provides a comprehensive blend of crowd sourced and aircraft data to provide you with the information necessary to be a more informed and safer driver. I don't ever drive anywhere without using this app.
