goTenna plugin users can now scan QR codes to receive multiple Frequency Sets. Additionally plugin users can share multiple Frequency Sets at once. This may generate more than one QR code. You must have at least version 1.2 to scan multiple codes.
Frequency Sets marked as Use Only cannot be shared or edited by the recipient. The specific channel information is also hidden. The use only flag is set when creating a QR code.
Plugin users can now manually enter frequency sets and share via QR or OTA.
- Receiving a shape with a Geo Fence that is already active on your device will turn off that Geo Fence.
The Send functionality in the shape's Geo Fence menu does not send the Geo Fence over goTenna. You must send the entire shape after configuring the Geo Fence.
The Custom monitor is limited to CoT 2525B points.
- Group messaging is not currently supported, only 1-to-1 and All Channels

The position markers also indicate if a user is only a goTenna node via a goTenna logo overlaid on the marker.
Note: PLI marker sent over goTenna stales out in correlation to sender's PLI frequency. PLI markers stale out 4.5 times the sender's selected ping rate. In the case of distance, it stales out at 300 seconds.
Note: Your administrator may enable automatic location sharing at 5 and 15 second intervals. Please be aware that this will significantly increase network traffic and result in quicker battery consumption. It is recommended that no more than 5 devices broadcast at 5 second intervals and 7 devices at 15 seconds. When PLI updates are not needed at this frequency, it is recommended to revert the update interval to 30 seconds or more.
