Default DMR Update

Anyone hear any news from Unication about the DMR/TRBO firmware for the G5's?

Local ish.. fire dept has VHF 7/800 G5 with P25/DMR as they are paged out via DMR and respond DMR but can monitor the city talkgroups on the 800mhz trunked system

Iv tried contacting unication over the last month and Tim does not seem to return calls or emails, had a tech send him a few emails for me and another lady said she would get a hold of him but no reply at all. I know there was some type of release date for DMR for this year but cant remember when that was

Just curious if anyone has any new info on the firmware update. In the current PPS in the help menu you can see they have added colour code and timeslot info so it shouldnt be too far away

Iím confused...I just read a document on ScannerMasters site that says the G4 already supports DMR (both conventional and trunking).

Is there a newer model than the one you own?

Per PPS, the following models support DMR:

G4:
G4B67BF-SXXXEN1400UNI

G5:
G5B67BF-SXVXEN1400UNI
G5B67BF-SXUBEN1400UNI
G5B67BF-SXUCEN1400UNI
G5B67BF-SXUDEN1400UNI

I would contact Ray's Pager Sales or West Coast Emergency Supply to get a definitive answer as dealers should have all that information.

I took a couple of screen shots for your review in PPS, you can find them below. I would test and see if it works on my G5 but we dont have anything that is DMR VHF. Hope this helps!

DMR on a G4? I have never seen a 700/800 MHz. DMR system. I don't see any of that DMR stuff on my PPS, same version (G4).

That was my thought also. I think I might have seen one on RR before. When you setup a new profile in PPS, it shows the protocols that it works with. Once in the profile, you can configure under tab D, then option 3. Since ive never programmed a DMR site before, I did a little research and a Tytera programming video on Youtube gave me an idea of how or what it would look like especially with the repeater slot options that the protocol settings require.

Default G5 Pagers

Does anyone know if the G 5 Pagers will monitor MOTOTRBO system. I just read a post above and they said something about it. Our Local VFD just went to Digital MOTOTRBO LCP and we are having trouble monitoring it. Any Help will be appreciated.

I don't see anything in PPS about it. Moto TRBO is becoming popular and it would not surprise me to see this added in the future.

Ok Thanks for your time that answers my question whether our fire dept needs to purchase some now. We need to wait.

The G4/5 does NOT monitor DMR. Unication has indicated it is coming in a future firmware release but it is not out yet.
