UV 17 Pro GPS

Guest Kirk

Recommended Posts

Heres a good start:


Specifically, this part:

GPS Capability
The UV-17 Pro GPS supports both GPS and BDS modes. The coordinates and elevation measurements are exact as expected. This includes location sharing between two UV17 Pro GPS radios. The UV17 Pro GPS also has the ability to send GPS coordinates between two radios.
Verify GPS capability
To verify that your radio has GPS, Menu 4 should display GNSS to select the GPS options. When GPS is turned ON, a long press of the Blue key in the upper right of the keypad will display the GPS screen.

I purchased a second radio to be able to send info back and forth. The first radio has a defective GPS function.  New one has GPS in green. Faulty one is red.

Help please!  I accidentally turned on my UV17-Pro-Max while gripping it so tightly that the PTT and maybe the FM buttons were held down.  The radio entered a mode where it acts only as a flashlight.  PTT turns on and off the flashlight, and there is nothing on the display screen (dark screen).  Does anyone know how to get the radio back into its normal mode?
