Re: TYT MD-9600 / Retevis RT-90 and GPS

HI! Thanks to the latest fixes from Colin, I can confirm that the GPS on V5 hardware is now working. (firmware version from 23-9-2022) The sensitivity is very very bad. On a car dashboard I was able to acquire only 2 satellites in 1/2h. I'm going to get a piggy tail and route it out the back to try ...

Sure, The radio is still on my bench, so it's easy to test it.
Thanks.

Re: TYT MD-9600 / Retevis RT-90 and GPS

Yes. That is correct.
I do not have a GPS page in the radio info screen. The radio behaves exactly as the V4A without GPS.

Re: TYT MD-9600 / Retevis RT-90 and GPS

Hi! Colin, I opened the radio front section to verify that there is a GPS inside (not just outside fake labels). It appears that there is a wire going to a small GPS antenna inside the case. The front board says "Key-V6.0180119" , and I can see an H210 GPS chip on it. IMG_20220914_165205_901_small.j...

TYT MD-9600 / Retevis RT-90 and GPS

HI! I wanted to get some clarity on the GPS support on this radio. I have a MD9600 V4A without GPS, and a V5 with GPS. The V5 has GPS written on the board, but I cannot easily spot any other extra components. Nor can I spot any software behaviour difference. (I have not put the V5/GPS outside yet) B...

Re: DMR ID database for non Brandmeister repeaters ?

ok, I am loading the database with 14 characters to fit ~125k entries (DM1801 using voice prompts). I think that the lookup is not working properly. As for Brandmeister the lookup is immediate most of the time. I can tell when the talker alias is being used. Did somebody test the different database ...

DMR ID database for non Brandmeister repeaters ?

HI!
I noticed that when talking on our local colorado DMR repeater I only get the radio DMR ID displayed, and not the callsign and name from the DMR ID database.
However on my Brandmeister repeater things work perfectly.
What am I missing ?
Thanks

Time Slot not working in VFO mode ?

HI! On the may 17th 2022 beta (and maybe other versions too)while operating in DMR mode, I set the timeslot to 2 in the in the VFO mode in the Channel Details screen, but the radio still shows TS1 , and transmits on TS1. All other settings seem to work fine. Am I missing something ? this is on a DM1...
