The DroidStar app is available at
your app store, for android, it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.dudetronics.droidstar
The thing that fouls most people up on DroidStar is that the TGIF
Pass setting isn't the http://tgif.network/ site password, it is the
"hotspot security key" that you have to use, even if your not using
a hotspot. You can find this by going to http://tgif.network/
and logging in with your call sign (not your email address) and your
site password, then at the top right hand side you will see your
call sign, click on that callsign, and select "user security", then
you will see a screen with your DMR ID and your Hotspot Security Key
(If you don't see a Hotspot Security Key, click the GREEN button
with the clockwise pointing arrows), copy the Hotspot Security Key
using the BLUE button, then return to Droid Star, and under Settings
tab, go to TGIF Pass (I know it's the wrong name, but that's
the way the software was written) and paste your Hotspot Security
Key into the TGIF password field.
While your on http://tgif.network/
open up your http://qrz.com/
page, and under the Detail tab, find your latitude and
longitude, in the Western Hemisphere north of the equator, the
latitude is a positive number and the longitude is a negative
number. Enter that information along with your location into
the Droid Star Settings tab.
Once you enter the TGIF Hotspot Security Key into the TGIF
pass field, it might disappear but it will be written into your
settings on DroidStar.
You need to install the DroidStar Vocoder manually!
If you are looking for the DroidStar Vocoder URL that you need for
DroidStar Settings tab, "Vocoder URL", you can find them here:
The most commonly needed one is the 64 bit one for Android smart
phone or tablet. http://pizzanbeer.net/plugins/vocoder_plugin.android.arm64
The 32 bit vocoder for 32 bit Android is here: http://pizzanbeer.net/plugins/vocoder_plugin.android.arm

Additional Vocoders for other systems.
The other vocoders have been deleted for unknown reasons, but they
are available if you use the Internet Archive Wayback Machine:
Again copy the URL and enter into the DroidStar Settings Tab
"Vocoder URL" - you might have to try several times because
archive.org can be slow.
