Suggestion: I ‘d love an option so that in DMR mode, the rotator control would scroll through the list of talk groups on a channel (i.e. repeater) rather than changing channels. In other words, so the knob would always "tune" the lowest level of choices, whether on FM or DMR. On FM, changing the channel is the end goal. On DMR, the channel is an intermediate step to the talk group, and changing the talk group is the end goal.

Related question: I am using the V2HW firmware dated April 13, 2022, which I believe is the latest. But I'm not seeing the "Button Remap" option, which you announced on Jan 4:

> Options -> General Options -> Button remap: On/Off

I do have (and am happily using) the Sound Options "Click suppr" and "DMR Rx AGC" which were also announced Jan 4.

Button remap did not change the operation of the rotary control on the Channel or VFO screens. It changed the way the rotary control worked for the menus. This option was removed becasue no one used it.

In case anyone might find this useful... I don't have a color printer. When I printed out the latest pictorial key map, I used the GD77 diagram colors as a guide, and I did some color-coding with colored pencils. And, for the mic diagram, I also used some colored stick-on dots cut with a looseleaf notebook punch. The dots are on the diagram, not the mic itself. This, side-by-side with my similarly-treated GD77 diagram, made it a lot easier to learn the MD-9700 keys. Obviously, this was done "quick and dirty" for my own use. Someone who is good with a "paint" program could make it it better-looking.

I think it was mistakenly written MD9700 that is MD9600

Started updating the Cheatsheets (sorry been away). Saw the new MD-9600/RT90.
Please let me know what else to add. This is only first pass. (I don't have this radio)
