"V1, R8, R4, DS1 Companion™" apps available now!
With a focus on simplicity, "V1 Companion™" delivers a simple yet powerful boost to your V1’s functionality. Set it, forget it, and drive... It just works!
*Requires V1 Gen2 Radar Locator or V1 Gen 1 Radar Locator with V1Connection LE Bluetooth module sold separately.
Automatic, intelligent location based learning / unlearning of potential false alerts (you have the ability to turn this feature on or off).
Discrete signal locking™ - helps prevent locking out real police radar in close frequency range to the SpotLock™ frequency.
Frequency drift compensation™ - helps compensate for changes of the location's frequency drifting up and down over time at the saved location.
BSM guard™ - helps to keep non-stationary vehicle BSM/CAS signals from polluting the SpotLock™ stationary location database.
Continuous location tuning - Whether a SpotLock™ is actively locked or learning, the SpotLock™ system will continue to learn and tune itself over time to better handle future encounters.
Manual creation/deletion of SpotLocks™ - Manually create/delete SpotLocks™ by easily tapping a graphical 'lock' image on your phone screen if desired.
The SpotLocks™ system is optimized separately for each of the V1Gen1 and V1Gen2 platforms.
SpotLocks™ take advantage of the advanced muting ability of the V1Gen2, so all SpotLocks™ are quiet from the onset, with no annoying initial 'blip' of audio.
Backup and Restore your SpotLocks using your iCloud drive.
Create Points of Interest (POI), so you can be alerted to unique locations you deem important in the areas you travel. Choose from several built in POI or create custom POIs with your own display title, custom voice phrase, distance to alert parameters and speed to alert parameters.
