If the GPS is enabled, the GPS icon will be turned on. It's quick and easy to see if you have an acquired signal.

For the Nearest Repeater function to work, the GPS must be enabled. The ID-31A supports the use of either the internal GPS or user supplied external GPS.

By default, neither GPS is selected. To enable the internal GPS:

  • MENU - GPS - GPS Set - GPS Select - Internal GPS

You may also want to set the Power Saving for the GPS

  • MENU - GPS - GPS Set - GPS Select - Power Save¬† - Auto

It may take a few minutes to acquire a valid signal. You should locate the radio so that it has a clear view of the sky. Once acquired, you can view the current information by choosing

  • QUICK MENU - GPS Information

Once the signal has been acquired, you can now see the closest repeater

  • Press and Hold the DR button for 1 sec. - Select FROM field - Select Center Blue Button - Near Repeater
