This application has its downfalls but overall, in my opinion, it is a good app. Everyone who complains about missing calls because of the app that is your fault, in the disclaimer it states that edispatches should NOT be used as a primary means of notification. In other words, carry a pager. There are several things that have to occur for the system to record your dispatch, and many people complain about the voice quality, we had that problem because our scanner that we had hooked up to the system was at our chiefs house far away from our repeater so we brought it into town and turned up the volume and it works like a champ. If you don't like the app then just uninstall it and rely on the text notifications.... Or CARRY A PAGER like every other volley in the country.
App works great. Really like the audio message, gives more info compared to just a text message that others use.
Looking forward to the upcoming mapping updates.
Has been working fine since installed. New OIS 7 works fine also. Would be nice to be able set different notification alerts for the two different tones we have. Also to be able to pull alerts from our own ringtones.
