Introduction from the US

Hello! It’s nice to be part of the Meshtastic community. I have ordered 10 boards and they will be arriving in a week or so. I’m still busy learning about lora capability especially within meshtastic. I don’t have a lot of experience with these types of systems in general. I do know how to tread water in linux so I’m hoping this dive into meshtastic isn’t too daunting.

I have seen a lot of talk about router mode and a few comments regarding it, so permit me to ask a question along with this introduction?

If the nodes will be unused by an individual and are there for forwarding purposes, is this considered router mode?

Also, disabling GPS of router mode will not populate their position, they will just forward the messages? Is there a wiki for a definitive guide to explain what router mode is?

Thanks in advance. I look forward to being apart of the community.

In version 1.2 router mode saves a bit of power, otherwise behaves as any other node, this feature has been removed from v 1.3 in favor of roles
