The Android app is now live in the Google Play Store!  :lol:

 

https://play.google....=com.mygmrs.app

 

 

 

Is there any interest in releasing the apps to the Amazon App Store as well? Doesn't seem like there are many users with these devices, but let me know.

Wondering what version of Android you have and what device. I've heard some complaints and my tablet did it a couple times randomly but my phone which is running a later version is fine. I'll look into it.

I think I found the issue. There's a version 1.0.8 rolling out today that should resolve it. Hopefully we can reverse some of those 1 star reviews that we got because of the bug.  :o

Just found this thread doing a search for "best HT/HH" (not finding BTW).

Grabbed my new Samsung Tab A 8.0" that I intend to use for map apps on my UTV and downloaded the myGRMS app.  Hit Open and the tablet asks for permission to know my location - Yes - and BOOM, 2 local repeaters pop up on the list.  Neither of these appear on the maps from the website so a great surprise.  I don't even have a radio yet but this makes me want one even more.

FCC shows a list of local GMRS license holders (I know none of them) so I know there are 20 or so folks licensed in the area; whether they use the system I guess I won't know until I listen up.

 

Anyway, first look is a positive for the new App.

 

Edit:  Clicking on the repeater in the App allows me to View on website (myGMRS) and there it is.. hmm.  Both repeaters are 'open' so will touch base with the owners regardless of whether permission is required.. just as a courtesy and to start out on the right foot.  Might get an invite to the repeater (one is likely on the mountaintop I used to visit to maintain microwave telecom).

finally took the plunge and joined...the android app was a little extra push

 

running into login issues in the app; it's giving me "Error: Request failed with status code 500".  triple checked i'm using the right password, updated and tried again, force stopped, cleared cache, uninstalled and reinstalled, no luck across 3 devices.

 

pixel 2, pixel 3a xl, both on android 10, and my old galaxy s5 on 6.0.1

 

any thoughts on what i'm doing wrong/missing?

Give it a try now. We had server issues earlier and the mobile app was still affected up until a few minutes ago. Should be good to go.

Moved from the Beta thread:

 

One thing I've found about the App that is inconvenient is that it seems to require login/password on each use.  Not fun when on a phone, or when you have a head full of passwords that are forgotten or are used to saving passwords with Google or such.
