V1connection is a Bluetooth®-enabled module about the size of your thumb that wirelessly links V1 to your compatible Android device. Choose among three information screens at any time: one reproduces V1 front-panel warnings in real time, plus frequency and direction of the Priority Alert; another shows the continuously-updated Threat Picture featuring our new Arrow-in-the-Box concept, a revolutionary way of analyzing radar threats; yet another screen lists all threats within range, with direction, band ID and frequency for each, arranged by length of tracking time. A yellow "Box" symbol appears for each threat "in the Box."
V1connection also acts as the Master Controller for your V1 system, allowing you to revise programming, adjust SAVVY settings, change muting, activate dark mode, save custom programming profiles for different trips, and more, all from your Android device.
Installation: Using the short, 3-inch cable (included), connect the RJ11 jack of the module to the ACC jack of V1's power adapter. Then download the free app, calledV1connection, the app, at Google's Play Store on your device.
Important compatibility requirements: Your device must have Android Operating System 2.3 or higher and (this is important) support Serial Port Profile (SPP) over Bluetooth. A screen resolution of 800x480 or larger is desirable for optimal viewing, but not essential.
V1connection works with all V1s but its full capability is available only from V1s with ESP. (Check for the ESP logo on the front panel below the Control Knob.) On pre-ESP V1s, or when using a pre-ESP Concealed Display or Remote Audio Adapter, your handheld will serve as a wireless remote display of all of V1's front-panel warnings, but other functions and screens are unavailable.
You'll see the Threat Picture
Of course the screen shows the exclusive Radar Locator with its illuminated arrows pointing toward the threat. And the Bogey Counter still tracks multiple threats as it always has. But now, with V1connection, a wireless Bluetooth® communicator, V1 shows you a revolutionary new way of analyzing radar threats.
three ways to track radar
V1 Screen: For the V1 traditionalist, this screen preserves the familiar Radar Locator, Bogey Counter and Band Indicators. New—at the top of the screen—you'll see the Priority Alert described by frequency and direction. Tap buttons to control Mute, V1 Dark Mode, and Computer Modes. "Factory Default Profile" in the gray bar at the top of the screen indicates that V1 is operating with its original factory settings. Tap the "Profiles" button to open the reprogramming section.
Situation shown: Three bogeys within range, located front and rear.
Your takeaway: Priority Alert dead ahead on 35.500 GHz.
V1 Screen: This is the Threat Picture, a quick look at the whole battlefield and all radar activity on it. You get radar location two ways: 1) Ahead, Beside or Behind your car, and; 2) where it is on the radar bands. The arrows grow in size to show strength. Arrows "in the Box" indicate threats in certified radar hot spots.nge, located front and rear.
Situation shown: If you know what radar bands the enforcers use in your area, you'll quickly see that alerts on other bands are false alarms.
Your takeaway: the Threat Picture instantly exposes the notorious Radar-next-to-a-false-alarm Trap. When you pass your daily nuisance alarm and see an extra arrow and it's "in the Box", you're being ambushed.
V1 Screen: For you "numbers guys" out there who think in digits, this is the Threat List, a pared-to-the-minimum screen showing all threats within range listed in order of detection, newest threat at the top. Each signal is identified by band, frequency, and direction, with a yellow "Box" symbol around the direction arrow to indicate a threat in a frequency range known to contain radar.
Situation shown: Three bogeys within range, located front and rear. Your takeaway: Priority Alert ahead and "in the Box" on Ka High. Two weaker signals behind, probably false alarms because both are "outside the Box."
