RS-MS1i iOS Application The RS-MS1i (for iOS™ devices) allows your iOS device to wirelessly connect to a D-STAR transceiver and remotely set DR functions, link with a map app and send/receive messages in DV mode. In addition, pictures on an iOS device can be transmitted in the DV Fast Data mode or DV mode. Share Pictures
You can take pictures with your iOS device or use stored pictures and share them. Pictures of your shack, operating place in the field, rigs, or friends can be sent to other D-STAR transceivers that are also using the app. Add images and make QSOs even more enjoyable. Pictures can be sent in the DV Fast Data mode or conventional DV mode (with voice). Text Messaging
Text messaging enables you to chat with other D-STAR users that are using the app. Use the function when texting is better than exchanging information over voice. By using iOS devices, you can exchange messages in your preferred language. DR Functions and Remote Setting
You can set the transceiver’s “FROM” and “TO” _elds and change some of the transceiver’s function settings from your iOS device. When using the optional VS-3 Bluetooth headset, you can wirelessly talk through the IC-705 or ID-4100A/E from a short distance* away from your rig.
* Communication range of Bluetooth is approximately 10 meters (33 feet). D-STAR Stations and Repeater Sites Mapping
See the location of other stations or repeater sites on a map using received position data. The transceiver’s “FROM” and “TO” can be automatically set by tapping a repeater site or a D-PRS station on the map. When used with a previously used or locally cached map, your own and other station’s locations can be shown without needing an Internet connection (Offline map function*).
* For only the RS-MS1A. Repeater List Viewer
You can see detailed repeater information, including frequencies, call signs and frequency offsets in the Repeater list. You can use it to manually set your transceiver when you are in a different area from your usual operating environment. Call Sign List
The app enables you to edit call signs and names used in the DR function. Also, you can add a call sign and a name in the Call sign list at any time. Receive History
In the DV mode, you can read and edit the received station’s information. Additional information from an Internet database, such as QRZ.com or APRS.fi, can be downloaded. Import and Export
You can import a user-programmable repeater list, or a repeater list on the Internet, from a PC to the app. In addition, receive history can be exported from the app to a PC. For compatibility with your radio, please check with the downloadable brochure on the side of this page. Alternatively, check out the list of options and accessories below. You can download the free iOS RS-MS1I application from the Apple Store.
