RFinder M1 *Update* 6.17.346

We just received a great news in the Facebook group page for the RFinder M1 from Bob Greenberg W2CYK, the M1 is in release candidate stage version 6.17.346 and seems to work great so far!

Release Candidate 6.17.346
This replaces older version 6.17.344 and earlier!

New or corrected features to test:  
1- Out of promiscuous mode consistently when a new station is tuned from anywhere

2- Promiscuous mode toggle button properly reflects state and also hides itself in FM mode
3- Screen wake on receive in promiscuous mode
4- Rounding error in memories fixed
5- Crash bug in locales with comma decimals fixed
6- Phone call turns off module, module comes back on properly with settings after call
7- While in Promiscuous mode, the TX stays on the previously programmed F, TS, TG, CC…you can TX but you will recieve on all…

NOTE: should ask for a new permission on install, monitor outgoing calls (that and reading phone state are necessary for the radio to work with the phone…

Tickets still open :
1-Volume knob
2- PTT cancel promiscuous mode seems technically unfeasible without a change to the RF module firmware.

As a short refresh, when the promiscuous mode is enabled, user can now receive DMR communication without the needs to enter a color code, talk group or even the time slot.

I strongly suggest interested users to visit the website to learn more about the RFinder M1 and all the potential this DMR transceiver offers to the Ham community.
