Re: Downloading firm ware and database

Left OS2 on last night and it still didn’t download the new database. It is set to auto download at 4AM.

On 3 attempts to manually download this morning it failed each time at about 30%.

Downloading firm ware and database

I usually have to make several attempts to download database or firmware. May be due to my internet service as it is wireless since I live in the sticks where there is no fiber or cable available. I wish that when a download fails it would save what has been downloaded so it didn’t have to start all...

Re: openspot 2 won't connect to cell phone

I am having trouble understanding what you are talking about. I am only explaning how to configure your iPhone so the Openspot 2 can connect to it. Beyond that you need to follow the instructions in the Openspot 2 manual.

Re: openspot 2 won't connect to cell phone

The SSID for my iPhone 6 personal hotspot is “iphone” which I named under settings - about - name. You can name it what you want to. Then I created a password under settings-personal hotspot-WiFi password. Then to enable the personal hotspot to be connected to, use the procedure I outlined in post a...

Re: openspot 2 won't connect to cell phone

I find that for the Openspot 2 to connect to my iPhone personal hotspot I have to either have the personal hotspot page under settings open or go to the control panel by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, then hold your finger on the square with the airplane, cellular data, WiFi, and Bluetoot...

Re: connexion wifi

You obviously are doing something wrong. I have had absolutely zero problems with my Openspot 2. It worked flawlessly on a recent 2800 mile road trip while connected via my iPhone personal hotspot to the internet.

Re: DMR - no received audio

A receive group list is a list of talkgroups other than the talkgroup the channel is programmed to transmit on that you would want to receive.

Then there is a place when you create channels for your Openspot that you then can put the so named receive group list. You do this for all Openspot channels. Finally c...
