GPS position reporting?

Postby g0ras » Wed Nov 25, 2015 4:48 pm

Hello,

I heard that the DMR+ network allows GPS position reporting, it seems that a user with a radio capable of sending position reports would need server information to be entered into the radio to allow this to work.

I am unable to locate this information, is it available or does the network not actually support this feature?

Thanks for any help.

I don't have a definitive answer to that Vic but I would imagine all you would need to do would be to switch on GPS on your mobile / portable, then switch on reporting and its interval and target.
I understand there would be no objection to GPS reporting, certainly locally across a repeater, probably not a problem across the BrandMeister UK network and probably not an issue globally at this stage unless the data burden becomes an issue.
