V1 Virtual Display is a software application designed to work in combination
with the Valentine OneŽ Radar Locator from
Valentine Research Inc.
Popup display on alert with configurable location and display time
Skinnable user interface allows the user to customize the display
Basic audible Theme support for custom sounds
Aspect ratio correction
Two way communication with the V1 by clicking on the notification icon, or on
Touch screen friendly
Allows multiple applications to access the display data though a DLL
The remote display can be hooked up along with the V1VD connection
Logging of GPS data (Speed, heading, and latitude/longitude) with alerts.
What the V1VD can do that the V1 can't:
Always display the alert mode. This normally cant be done because the count
display and the mode are one in the same. With the V1VD this can be
decoupled, depending on the skin.
Play user defineable sounds on alerts.
Log information received.
Keep track of where you received alerts from your V1 with an attached GPS.
The setup application will ask you where you want to install the application.
Make a note of this, as this is the directory where the driver files are
When you startup the application it should pop up with the default settings.
If the interface is found, and there is data coming from the V1, the
notification icon should be RED. If the interface is not connected, or
there is no data coming from the V1, the icon will be grey.
To interact with the V1 you can right or left click on the application
window, or left click on the icon, to press the mute button on the V1.
The context menu can be accessed by right clicking on the notification icon,
or double clicking on the display. From there you can change options, change
the skin, enter/exit skin view mode, or exit or restart the application.
Skin view mode allows you to step though all the different sprites in the
skin, useful in tuning the skin.
Playback of logs will turn of detection until the log is finished, or until
it is stopped. This affects all attached applications.
Skins are located in the skin folder underneath the application directory.
Each skin must have its own directory, and contain a filecalled skin.xml. The
documentation for the format is contained within the default skin (V1). An
optional preview image can be provided for each skin. The image must have the
same name as the skin, be in gif format, and reside in the skins directory.
This image is displayed in the options menu, and on the website.
Themes can either reside in the a skin's directory, or in the theme folder.
