Globetrotter firmware update 1.6 Beta version!

A Globetrotter firmware update is available. It is now possible to enter a WIFI password longer than 12 characters. It is a Beta version. If you want to test this version, you must activate the Beta tester function. If you are a Beta tester already powercycle or reset the Globetrotter to install this update.

I expect to release this version around June 8th. If you want to go back to the final version after an update to this Beta version, you can do so by simply turning off the Beta tester function. After a power cycle or reset the last released version will be reinstalled.

Watch this video if you want to learn more about how to become a Beta tester. Fast foreward to 5:50 min, the topic starts there.

Sales release DVMEGA Globetrotter

By using the Globetrotter in combination with BlueDV, you have a powerful digital voice communication tool that allows you to communicate from anywhere to anyone with just a simple internet connection.

The Globetrotter is basically an AMBE server and AMBE dongle in one. It can be switched between server and dongle in a few simple steps. With the server active you can connect your Android BlueDV AMBE app to the Globetrotter anywhere within range of the internet (WIFI). It is also possible to use the Globetrotter on the road while it is physically at your home.

Update week 21

Actually, there is not much to report about last week’s work.

However, an undesirable status regarding the off state of the DVMEGA Cast has become clear. The connection to, in case of D-Star, the reflector is maintained when the device is switched off. REF001 is currently so busy that measures had to be taken and the maximum number of connected stations limited. So, staying connected in an off state is not so neat. I will take action on this soon.
