I updated the installation instructions

Setting radio type to Motorola , or Hytera or ETSI all work fine.

So if you have other radios which send Motorola or Hytera format SMS messages, then you can leave the Brand set as Motorola.
Awesome, thank you Roger!
No worries.

Originally I tested with both the Motorola and Hytera settings, as the ETSI setting did not allow In Call GPS to be enabled.
But BM enabled the In Call GPS option on ETSI for me, becuase all these radio types send the Talker Alias location data in the same format.

I think the Brand setting on BM is more related to SMS based APRS messages, because I'm pretty sure Motorola use their own private data format for SMS APRS messages, and this probably differs from Hytera and other radios.

Thank you. It would be great if the TA changed dynamically to the TG in which the challenge goes.

Why would you want to send the TG number in the TA. TG number is already part of the raw data sent in the transmission; thats how the DMR network works

Welcome. Do you have a callsign ?
No, I'm just a simple swl, which also transmits on PMR 446.

An active TG would be visible on aprs.fi. Well, it's not necessary. Thank you.

Aprs.fi does not seem to shows the Talker Alais text that is transmitted by the radio

I think you have to set the APRS text via the Brandmeister SelfCare screen.
