PDC760 as a daily carry phone?
#1
Thinking of getting a PDC760 as a daily carry and hoping someone can help with a few questions...
Will it fit OK in a jeans pocket without the antenna (I image mainly using ROIP)?
Can it use normal Bluetooth headphones?
Does the Radio audio go over the headphones? I have a PNC370, TuneIn Radio works with Bluetooth headphones, but not POC apps.
Any PTT issues with Echolink and Peanut?

Other than Brandmeister, I listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks plus web and email. Do you think it would be fit for purpose? Any issues or annoyances using this as a phone?

Thanks, Gordon

Thanks, Kosta
I have it ordered and it should arrive next week. Have you tried SD cards larger than 128GB? Hoping a spare 400GB I have will work.

Was reading that there may be a new firmware for the 760, perhaps that addresses the 60-second maximum transmission issue. I'm still on 3.0.7 - is there something in the last month? Thanks guys!

Hi Aerodan,

You do have the option for more time out on PTT with v3.0

Nothing newer as of yet.

thank you.
