On the 1st of march we will phase out the GPS destination 5057. If this is the destination ID you are currently using in your codeplug, please update it as soon as possible using the instructions below.
You will need to replace the GPS destination with the first 3 digits of any active BrandMeister Master Server ID (ie: 204 for Netherlands, 208 for France, 310 for USA, etc.) followed by 999. For example the following destinations are valid for GPS destinations: 204999 (because there are masters 2041 and 2042), 208999 (because there is a 2082 master), 310999 (because there are masters 3101,3012, 3103, 3108), etc.
The first 3 digits of the GPS destination does not have to match those of the BrandMeister master server where your repeater or hotspot is connected to. For example, you can use GPS destination ID 208999 even if the repeater you use is connected to master 2042.
How to choose the GPS destination ID for your codeplug ? If the country where you operate has a BrandMeister server, the most logical choice is to use the first 3 digit of your country’s master ID and add 999 (for example 262999 if you are in Germany). If your country doesn’t have a master server, use the first digits of the one closest from your location.
