About this app

V1Driver is designed to add intelligence to your Valentine One Radar Detector so you can enjoy your Drive.

V1Driver adds 3 forms of automatic muting (all selectable by Band):

1) By Speed (Savvy Emulation), if you are under the specified speed it will keep the Radar Detector muted.

2) By Time, it will AutoMute after a specified time.

3) By GPS Location, by long term tracking. This tracks hits of the same frequency in the same location spread over several days before considering it for lockout. If a signal later becomes absent it will remove the lock.

V1Driver takes the infamous V1 "Arrows" to a new level by displaying the bogeys on a 2 dimensional map. So you can track how close they are before waiting for the arrows to "flip" direction.

It has extensive audible options. Including Text-To-Speech of Band and Frequency. Audio can optionally use Hands Free Protocol [Future Release if Possible] (a phone call) on your car or motor cycle.

This app is compatible with devices that support Android 5.1 (Lollipop) or later that have a that include GPS. It will work in any orientation. An active cellular connection is not required. For viewing the map or backing up to the Cloud you will need a Data connection, but that is not required for day to day operation.

This application requires a Valentine One Radar Detector that is compatible with Valentine Research's Bluetooth LE Dongle or the Standard Dongle. You should have Valentine Research's V1Connection App (freely available in the App store) operational before purchasing V1Driver.

V1Driver will automatically connect to the Valentine One Bluetooth Dongle in the background. This feature of watching for the Bluetooth Dongle when away from your car does not use the GPS, uses very little battery and can be disabled if you wish.

There is no guarantee V1Driver won't lock out an undesired signal. But it should clean itself up over time if it does. v2

Updated to the new release designed for gen2 valentine. Tried multiple Bluetooth configurations (LE dongle, A2DP) but no luck getting the app to auto reconnect to the gen2. Hoping for an update soon. I'm android, S20 +. Update. Uploaded latest release. App does 6 LE scans on Gen 2 shutdown. Will reconnect during this cycle. Once LE scans complete and app goes quiet there's no auto reconnect. Still get "unexpected shutdown when starting the app.

I just uploaded a new release. I didn't see a crash from any Samsung Galaxy S20 but I did from other devices and hopefully it's the same issue you are running into. I did find a problem. I will keep an eye on crash logs until I know it's stable. There was a lot of changes in this release including a whole new library from Valentine.

After the previous update noted by George Mills, the auto reconnect is MUCH better, thank you!. It is now usually almost instantaneous. This one app was the only thing keeping my old iPhone active. I feel like I can now retire my iPhone (I really cant stand Apple).

Look in Bluetooth Settings in V1Driver. There are many ways it can trigger reconnecting. You can trigger on it seeing the Bluetooth LE Dongle (if that's the Bluetooth Dongle you have and you are on a late enough version of Android). You can also trigger re-connecting when your phone pairs to your car (That is called Scan on A2DP).
