Connecting Two YSF Reflectors - No Location Data Passed

David,

At this time, GPS data does not pass across TLV. Possible in a future revision. Thanks for the comment. It's now on the list.

In the log snippets below, AK2L was on one YSF reflector and K7VTT was on another.  K7VTT's radio reported that AK2L was 3,000+ miles away.  When both operators are on the same reflector -- not going through the bridge -- the number reported is +/- 17 miles.

Can you post the section of the MMDVM_Bridge log where traffic is passing between reflectors?

I have two YSF reflectors connected with DVSwitch/MMDVM-Bridge.  They have been active for over 2 years and pass audio just fine.

There is a small problem: Location data (Lat/Long) does not cross the bridge.  If two users are sharing the same reflector -- that is, not using the bridge -- they may show as being 5.5 miles apart.  However, if the two users are on different reflectors, they show as being 3,000+ miles apart, even when they are only a few miles apart.

Is there a setting I can correct to make this work?  Is there an update that addresses this?

Thanks.
