To save me searching, do they do crossband repeat in DMR mode?

Another couple of oddities I've found with the rt82 (firmware D003.031, CPS V01.16)
Scanning doesn't work - pressing a softkey programmed to turn scan on and off doesn't do anything, if you go to 'scan' in the menu you can't select it.
When you change zones it doesn't remember what channel you were on and reverts to channel 1, not sure if this is expected behaviour but I'd prefer it to stay on the channel I put it on.

EDIT: The scan thing was user error, I thought that adding a channel to a scan list within the scan list would make it scan, but it turns out you've got to add the channel to the scan list in the channel too if that makes sense.

False alarm, the scanning is fine, I hadn't added the channels to the scan list properly - it turns out that doing it in the scan list isn't enough, you've got to do it in the channel too.

I've also found that if you have autoscan turned on, you can't navigate away from an active channel by changing A/B or changing Zone, you've got to turn scan off first. This problem doesn't occur with manual scanning (i.e. pressing the scan button) because changing channel knocks it off. This sounds like item 2 on bigblokes list.

when it arrives can you confirm interoperability between the RT-82 and the MD380 when both use enhanced encryption please ?

the keys look the right length for 128 bit

I programmed up both the MD-380 and the RT-82 on the same simplex UHF channel - DMR, DMR basic and DMR enhanced work fine both ways between them - so compatibility is 100%.
