Ability to turn off ID lookup on Group calls

Post by KF6S » Tue Jun 18, 2019 2:01 am

On the Status screen of the OpenSpot 2 the To: field on a Group DMR call looks up the Talk Group number in the ID database and returns the corresponding record. For example, if you use a Talk Group with a number of 1000 and make a Group call the OpenSpot 2 will lookup ID 1000 in the database and display KP4RF Oscar (1000, Puerto Ricco). Maybe the OpenSpot 2 could have a field where you can choose to not do an ID lookup for of the Talk Group number or even better allow you to specify a group database file or a group URL to do the lookup from. This is the way we handle the Talk Group names on other devices, such as any device that uses the Nextion Driver. With the current Status screen at first look it looks like you made a private call to Oscar KP4RF not a Group call to Talk Group 1000.

Wouldn't this be a BM on the server side ?

You'll be able to disable group call lookups in the next beta firmware.
