Not sure why you NEED a Blue Cat dongle. Was hoping it was going to work with my standard Bluetooth dongle that I use for HRD. Need to spend $60 on a piece of hardware that costs about $5 to build, and you need to order it from overseas. I would be far happier to pay for the software and use a standard Bluetooth device, than wait for a unit to be shipped overseas that is overpriced. Also would like to put in a location so that when I arrive there, I know what repeaters I should have programmed into my radio.
The app is nice. To bad it didn't work with cheap eBay Bluetooth CAT adapters. I would pay the trending app price if I could use my eBay adapter which had the same $5.00 dollars worth of parts.
Still leaves a lot to be desired Still no map feature. Choosing location requires you know the grid square you want to search. Can't choose by city or zip. Gives only a very imprecise bearing to repeaters. Should give corrected magnetic bearing.
Excellent for a free app! Database seems up to date and is great for traveling or being on the road alot. Disappointed however that the remote control capabilities only work with their overly expensive bluetooth adapter rather than the one I have or one of the other dozens of them out there that are inexpensive and work with many other ham radio apps with no problem, so you can't even test the CAT capabilities if you wanted to. If it weren't for that I'd happily give it five 5 stars.
Resourceful The best Android repeater guide available. AND always free. BlueCAT is wonderful. More accurate than the paid for version endorsed by ARRL.
Works great! This app works better than the arrl app.
Try the new search feature
Search by Town, Call, Frequency or Grid Square!
Give it a try!
