I've done a lot of searching but have been unable to find out how to actually make it work.

On Mikado's site it says download the app and make it active. I've done that. It shows up in my app list and it is check marked.

But there is no information after that.

Could it be it only works on NEO and not on the mini blue Vbar?

I've since upgraded everything to NEO. But, it worked fine on my mini-v black and full-sized black vbars.

There is no configuration. Are you saying that (for example) when you flip between banks it does not say 'bank 1' or 'bank 2', etc.?

That's what it does. It just calls out every switch flipped. If switches are assigned to specific functions, it calls out that function...motor on, motor idle, motor off, for example.

If you have a UI sensor installed, you can also assign a switch to audible telemetry. Maybe that's what you're looking for? I have mine set to read off current, voltage, headspeed, BEC voltage (UI sensor not required for HS or BEC voltage), all with the touch of a momentary switch in flight.

here's how that works:

if it ain't broke, break it.

cuda,

Right, I get no voice when I change banks.

However, when you mentioned "telemetry" the light came on.

I don't have any sensors for telemetry installed, so the telemetry sound level was turned off. Increased the volume and now I hear it!

Didn't realize this would be under the telemetry category....

I'm absolutely loving this radio, but some of the more nifty features I don't have any frame of reference for.

Thanks for jogging the brain!

you're going through the same thing I went through the first 3 months I had it. I've had it almost a year now and I can't imagine going back to any other radio. I even bought special sun glasses so I can see the silly thing in the sunlight. Worth it though.

if it ain't broke, break it.

I'm getting the idea I'm over thinking this radio. After I figure something out, I look back and am surprised how easy it was. I'm expecting a lot more effort to get things to work, just like the light sensor for the display. Got to get out of this old school tedious programming.....
