Monitor Mode was removed in favor of using a Wildcard TGID of FFFF (HEX).
This is better in that you *could* create a knob postion that is ONLY the wildcard.... easier to use than menu options to enable and disable MM.
Troymail and David straightened me out on this.Sorry about that.

Maybe I am missing something but sure dont want this removed.

Since g4 and g5 cant silence ENC traffic it is so easy to turn off monitor mode via radio settings.

However now must we do this via a PC and software?

Unless you can turn a TG on and off via radio's menu?

Correct. I now have a knob position on trunking-monitoring for "monitoring" only. You will have to enter at least one talkgroup.

Not sure I understand how to do this and why it is better then monitor mode. To have a wildcard talkgroup do I need to set up one in the list with the other talkgroups? Then put this talkgroup in the list on the knob position I'm wanting to be able to monitor that system? Hope that makes since. Seems like being able to switch to monitor mode for the system I'm using is easier since I don't have to setup two postions for every system

You don't really have to create a wildcard tg. Just make a knob position set to trunk monitor for the desired system and add one of the already existing tgs you have to it.

This is true. We added a new receiving mode called Trunking TG - Monitor

FYI, based on David's earlier responses, I think the deal is that if you have ever sent email to P25Firmware, he has your contact information on file and will send you a notification when it's ready.

Sure - but many of us wouldn't do that if you have specific talkgroups in a knob position and don't want to hear everything (including gibberish from the encrypted talkgroups). Everyone's situation is different.

Understood Troy
I was only trying to say he didn't have to create a wildcard tg.

Looks like talkgroup hold, nuisance delete, scan delay, and all the other nice bells and whistles being requested are still on the back burner....along with Phase II. QCII over P25 is nice (especially since it's a pager) but the list of updates is not too impressive for the time it's been taking for requested features to be implemented. I've said it for a long time that Unication has a product that performs and have supported and promoted their product to others. BUT, they are going to miss their mark because I'm sure Uniden or Whistler has some R&D going to to improve LSM reception. And if they can get that down, they already have all the features that the Unication does not. Not bashing Unication, just seeing a missed opportunity.

Is late entry on the list of upgrades as well? I know that was another problem mentioned that the pager wouldn't stop on an in progress conversation. I'm really impartial to how things are setup on Kenwoods radios for scanning so if they could somewhat mirror that it would be great and real simple. I would spend my money yesterday if these features were added. There is a gold mine here waiting to be taken.

I'm so confused by Unication. What's the point of having TG Monitor/Wildcard/Monitor Mode etc, if you can't stop on a talk group? This makes no sense to me. We've been asking for this feature going on two years. This is not a scanner only feature given the fact that Unication has had monitor mode on its pager from the beginnin. Again, what's the point of it if you can't hold on what you need to hear during the tg scan?

That's because the new PPS/FW has not been released yet. !!!

Patience folks! I'm sure Unication is listening to your requests and trying to make at least some of them available to this community. I feel we are already blessed by the perfect decoding and by even having an Unication representative that is active in this forum. Let's wait. I know many here have been waiting for long but I think it's worth waiting.
I'd also say if Unication enters the scanner market at the consumer level, they will probably annihilate Whistler and Uniden... OR these guys would have step up and get serious about decoding.
Anyway guys, patience please!

@Unification Dave,

Does this firmware update hopefully the issue of G5'S not alerting to tones while scanning 3 channels in silent scan?

Another *bug* I found is that I can't replay the call if the display is locked. I hope this gets fixed down the line.
