Default G4/G5 summary of tips/tricks

First let me say thank you to all the folks who help answer questions and share information here on the Unication forum. I have been a G5 owner for over a year and I am very happy with this pager. The G5 has overcome the P25 simulcast issues that I have struggled with for years with OTS scanners.

The G4/G5 is a full featured device with many configuration options. Like many devices today it has a certain level of complication and a learning curve associated with its programming. This forum has helped me become pretty proficient in the setup and programming of my G5.

I recently helped a friend get their new G5 programmed and I started writing down a few tips that I had already learned for his future reference. Though the search feature here on RR is very helpful, it would be nice to have a summary list of the best tips and tricks for the G4/G5. Has anyone started such a list they would like to share? Just thought I would ask..........

Again, thanks for all the contributors on this and many of the other RR forums. Your help, guidance and opinions are appreciated!

When browsing through your zones (to select) you can move the directional key left and right to scroll by page, comes in handy when you have a bunch of zones to work with.

When playing back recorded messages using the play button on top, you can skip through longer messages by pushing the play button again.

Thanks for the left/right scroll tip. You can also press the joystick instead of the select key to select.

I create custom voice prompts for all my Knob positions. I use a free utility called Text to Wav.
