  HCP-1 Update and Modem Change in Pi-star?
Posted by: KZ4ARN - 03-21-2021, 03:52 PM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies

I logged into my pi-star dashboard the other day and saw there was a new update and the the modem had been cleared out. Anyone run into any of this and, if so, what did you do? Attached some pictures of what i am talking about. I tried emailing support, but so far crickets..

When I search for my City, State, within 20 miles, for the United States, I receive European Data. Using Firefox as a browser. Works fine on my phone.  Want to either print results or export to a software program.  Any solutions?

  MY bugs, so far
Posted by: KK6TMA - 03-10-2021, 12:44 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (1)

Sound comes and goes.  I can see people transmitting on the dashboard and I see the green light... but no sound.  If I click off and on, sometimes it works.  Other times, I have to reboot the entire phone.... sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  Sometimes I have to reboot the hotspot.  So I spend a lot time rebooting things.

I installed the external hand mic and it worked fine.  I removed it and the phone got stuck in headset mode and I lost the functionality of hearing my phone calls on the ear mic on the phone.  I did a factory reset and it fixed the problem.

I have yet to hit a DMR repeater (without the hotspot), even when a mile away.  So far I have only been able to use it over the internet.

The Rfinder App crashes randomly when making changes.

Manually switching to another repeater, it shows the new settings but it doesn't work unless you turn the radio off and back on.

I've only had this radio for about a week and have been in contact with Bob, so I'm hoping to get the bugs worked out soon, so I can enjoy this fine piece of equipment.

  Nice Stubby Antenna for Hot Spot Use
Posted by: hdtravel - 03-09-2021, 03:50 PM - Forum: Accessories - No Replies

The Comet Antennas SMA-209J is a nice stubby antenna for use with your RFinder B1 when using it with a Hot Spot or close to a repeater. It is nice quality - fits this radio and performs decent for it's short size. I recommend it.

After changing to duplex and ready to fire up, rebooted and see the screen but never finishes reboot. Want to pop apart and see if I can do a hard reboot. Can a default reset be done via cable?

  HCP-1 Died
Posted by: tadgh45 - 02-17-2021, 06:30 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (1)

HCP-1 just died on me yesterday while using it mobile - linked to my iPhone 7Plus. I thought maybe the battery was dead and charged it all night when I got home.( I wish there was an charge indicator on it. Very frustrating.) It will now turn on for about 20 seconds and then go dead again before it can connect to the internet. Any clue what's going on? Is there any firmware update for this?

  "Internal Hotspot"
Posted by: johntfrost - 01-30-2021, 03:11 PM - Forum: Development - Replies (1)

What is the status on the roll out of the so called "Internal Hotspot" for the B1? I thought it was supposed to be available around last May or so by way of a Firmware update. That was a key factor in my purchase of the B1.

Thanks in advance

  APRS on the B1
Posted by: k7gps.dave - 01-25-2021, 08:38 AM - Forum: Development - No Replies

Several folks have asked about using APRS on the B1. Good news, you already can, and more improvements are on the way. For now, you can use the app APRSdroid and configure it for use on the APRS-IS via your cellular connection. What's under development now is getting APRSdroid and the B1 to work under RF. Bob is working with the author of APRSdroid Michael Iafrato to make this happen. Stay tuned.

  noob question RE: sim card
Posted by: aslondon - 01-23-2021, 08:21 PM - Forum: General Discussions - Replies (2)

I am a little unclear about getting a sim card to work with the B1.  I have an old iphone which I have taken out of service.  Do I need to reactivate it then pull the sim card out and put it in the B1 and keep the cell account active under the iphone label?  Or do I just rry to add a new line of service with no phone attached other than the B1 and ask verizon for a sim card?  I have a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra that I am keeping as my main number.  I'll use the B1 as a back-up phone.  

Thanks in advance.  My B1 should be here monday so it may become clearer at that point.
