When in Mass Storage mode the radio can connect directly to a computer from where you can access all the SD card information using your file management program like windows explorer or Apple finder.

Now, you can also access the radio using an Android or iOS device like a smartphone or tablet device.

This comes as very handy when you are at the field in case you want to access or share a model with another pilot or if you want to back up your files or access flight logs.

The connection is done with a USB cable connected between your mobile device and radio transmitter.

You should also consider having cloud storage such as iCloud or Google Drive storage where you can backup all of your files like models, images, log files, and custom voices but you can also have them stored on your mobile device.

ANDROID

You will need a good quality Micro USB OTG cable to Micro USB to connect the radio to your mobile device.

Set the radio to Mass Storage mode.

Select the volume from where you can access all the folders on your radio.
