• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

If your remote device remains "fairly close" (10' or less) to the scanner, you might consider using "Access Point Mode" rather than "Infrastructure Mode".

In Access Point, the connection is scanner to remote device.

In Infrastructure, the connection is scanner to router then to remote device.

Using Access Point removes the "middle-man" router.

I use a "de-commissioned" iPhone in my vehicle as the remote head. It is in a charging cradle to maintain battery charge.

There are still a few hiccups (at least in the iPhone app) where full functionality isn't present. For example toggling Quick Keys via remote device doesn't work.
