2. Touch screen
3. Bluetooth function and/or USB host function

Compatible transceivers
- ID-5100A/E
- ID-51A/E (PLUS) 50th Anniversary model
- ID-51A/E*
- ID-31A/E*
- IC-7100*

*Not all functions are usable.

Preparation
To use the RS-MS1A with a supported transceiver, you need an internal Bluetooth unit or the OPC-2350LU data cable. See your transceiver’s instruction manual for details.

Note:
- The RS-MS1A may not work with all Android devices, even if it is one of the tested devices. This is because an application program on your device may conflict with the RS-MS1A.
- You may need to install additional file managing and image processing software.
- Your Android device must be USB host function compatible to communicate with your transceiver through the OPC-2350LU cable. Even if your device is USB host function compatible, the RS-MS1A may not function properly.
- You may need to connect to the Internet through a Wireless LAN, a 3G network or an LTE network for some functions.
- The RS-MS1A supports only portrait orientation. It does not support Auto Rotate.
- Remove the data cable when the Android device is not used to reduce the devices power consumption
- The RS-MS1A program may lock up when transmitting some high-quality or large size image files, or continuously operated for a long time. In that case, restart the program.
- Depending on the Android device, the power supplied to the USB terminal may be stopped while in the display sleep mode or power saving mode. In that case, remove the “Screen timeout” check mark on the Application Setting screen of the RS-MS1A.
- When you transmit an image file with the baud rate set at 4800bps, some of that data may be lost. In that case, set the baud rate to over 9600bps.

Does not work with my Samsung Galaxy Tab running 4.4.2 Error says: USB is not supported on this device. Don't buy the cable until you test the app for compatibility.

Nice and useful Does what it us supposed to do. It would have been good of the audio was also played on the Android device. Note that this app works fine with my stock Samsung Galaxy Note 4 running lollipop.

No good With Samsung S6 Installed the latest version on my brand new Samsung S6. Pairs with my new 5100 no problem but that is as far as it will go. Numerous attempts to get technical support for this problem have failed and basically I was told that it does not appear to be compatible with the S6 'at this time'.
