M-RADIO CONTROL APP FOR TETRA MXP600
Until now, it has always been necessary to hold the radio in hand to interact with it (for example to change channels or view and send text messages), but that is not always practical. Now, the M-Radio Control app provides another way to engage with the radio easily and discreetly by utilising a smartphone and secure Bluetooth connection. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play store and allows a variety of everyday tasks to be handled more efficiently, utilising the bigger screen, easier input and familiar interface of a smartphone to control the MXP600 radio.
Users can easily search for a talkgroup in the app by inputting just a few letters, change a talkgroup or view recent talkgroups. Selecting a talkgroup in the app, instantly changes the talkgroup on the radio. Group call details including group name and ID of the current talker can also be viewed.
The app acts as a remote control for the radio, and can perform many functions such as quickly initiating or answering simplex/duplex Private Calls. The user still communicates in the traditional manner; via the radio’s microphone and loudspeaker or a connected headset.
Smartphones are handy for reading and replying to text messages. The M-Radio Control messaging widget, on the smartphone home screen, enables one touch access to SDS text messages. With new message alerts and easy-to-view threads, users can quickly review and respond to messages from colleagues.
By syncing with the radio’s address book, the app allows easy contact management. Users can quickly view Recent Call lists, select contacts, initiate a Private Call and send text messages directly from the app. Searching for a contact is as simple as typing a few letters.
