DMR Contact List

Post by KD6QFO »

I am just getting into DMR and plan to use my OpenSpot 1 and 2 mobile. I just saw a difference in the OpenSpot's (1,2 and the new 3) which forces me to ask a question of the more experienced people using OpenSpot devices.

1) I see the OS1 does not get DMR ID database updates. How will this impact me using DMR on an OpenSpot 1? Is this a big enough issue to use only the OpenSpot 2?

2) With the new OpenSpot 3 out, will DMR contact databases stay updated automatically?

Thanks in advance,

The ID database is very useful in cross modes, so for example you can see the remote party's callsign on your Fusion radio while using a DMR network. The OS1 can't do this.

The OS2 and OS3 automatically updates the ID database.
