Atom XL side buttons

on 8/1/20, 5:14 PM 222 views

The red programmable side button on the Atom XL does not work as a PTT button for the DMR radio app.  I would think that the intercom app would seize control of that button when it needs it.  Maybe I am missing a setting for this or would a firmware update help?

Also, just a small criticism, but all the side buttons stick out too far and are too easily activated when the phone is in my pocket.  I was wondering how thick the button material is as I was thinking about shaving about 1mm off the top to make the buttons flush to the surface?

Thanks, that works to enable the PTT.  I'll have to go to setting every time I need to use the radio since I don't want the intercom app to launch by mistake in my pocket.  Just a few extra steps, it's OK.  Still thinking about shaving the buttons down though...

Check under Settings>Smart Assistant>Shortcut settings>Use of PTT key. By default, this is disabled, because it is mutually exclusive with the "Smart key" options below.
