Re: XLX003 Reflector; Anna
I was at the APRS Summer Gather in North Bend, WA last weekend hanging out with the rest of the NW Digital Radio crew and a bunch of other ham friends, so I didn’t have a chance to commit the code and push things up to the iTunes store.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I wrote the code earlier this evening and did some light testing to make sure it at least pretended to link to the XLX reflectors, and it seemed to work although I didn’t find one with any audio to listen to.
This version is 1.2.2 and is pushed up to the App Store for approval. As soon as Apple approves, it’ll be marked for availability.
Incidentally, for those wondering why I don’t distribute this off of my own website, here’s the answer:
Buster includes geolocation and mapping functionality. The “Location” field on your display is actually derived from any DPRS information carried with the connection. In addition you should be able to click on that location to reveal a popup that contains a small map of where that location actually is. Again, derived from the DPRS information from that transition.
To be able to use the Apple mapping and geolocation APIs, you have to distribute your app on the App Store and sandbox it. Otherwise your app cannot connect to the proper services to make it work. That’s why I do this and why it sometimes takes a while to get things reviewed and put on the store.
Also note that it appears as though opendstar.org is having some issues. This causes Buster to not be able to get the reflector list and drop all the REF reflectors. Once Robin fixes this, it should start working again.
