This post is actually a combination of different “Tips & Tricks” I previously wrote in the knowledge base. I’m not going to explain all settings again. Just hit the tags in the sidebar most of the subjects discussed here are filled under “Button Mapper” and “Zello“
Since a few weeks I’ve got this new found love for the first Network Radio I bought: the Inrico T320. As you all know, i’m a huge fan of Telo, I love the build, the audio quality, the design … and especially the big touchscreen. So for a while I was very happy with my TE-590 and I still am. But preferences changes over time. Ever since I started using Walkie Fleet at home and at work, I struggled with the dual app that needs to be configered: Zello for Hobby and Walkie Fleet for Work and Home use.
And now the thing that first led me away from the T320 is actually the thing that I most love about it: Its keyboard. I’ve found out that with most big touchscreens I often accidentally hit the screen and disable or enable stuff! The smaller screen on the T320 is less sensitive and in combination with Button Mapper I’m super fast in changing Apps, settings, channels, …. So here’s a short description on how I set up my Inrico T320:
In a random chat on one of our favorite channels, we were talking about PD0KHN, Martin’s newest addition to his Radio Park: an Inrico T320. We were discussing that adjusting the sound is not a subtile matter, it goes with button clicks and it’s lowest volume is sometimes just a little bit too loud. Same goes for the TM-7 (plus)… we all experienced the same issue. We got interrupted by Jeerke77 who told us that if you disable the Sound Enhancement in Android Sound Settings, the volume is far more softer and subtile in its lower volumes.
I recently saw some postings on the Network Radios and Inrico T320 facebook pages where people complained that the display of their T320 suddenly inverted the colors/contrast. I had the same issue on my T320 and this is how to solve the issue:
On mobile devices you can map the P1/2/3/4 buttons to go to a channel/contact in Zello with Button Mapper. In theory you can map any hardware button to a channel or contact except for buttons that are preoccupied by the Zello app: SOS-button, PPT , … If you still use your dialer, make sure you map the long press key and not the single press key.
Rename the channels you want to add to 01, 02 and so on …
Add the buttons in Button Mapper and for every button add the Action: “Broadcast Intent” to single tap (for CH 05 to 08 use long press)
In the field “action” add “com.dfl.knob” (without the brackets)
in the field “key:value” add “frequencyNum:XX” where XX is the number of the channel(01, 02…)
save and try
Warning: This only works in the donation version!!!
This also works with other numbers, so if you have allready setup different numbering on your account you can also map “03 ZRB to P2” or “16 Mom to P4” If you want to use the “single press” on the P1, you should config the “long press” on P1 identical to the “short press.” Otherwise it will not work with “short press” We don’t know why but that’s the work around we found 😉
