Well, it still works for other serial numbers. I tried yours and got the same message that you got. Is it possible that your detector has been reported lost or stolen? Maybe they have marked it in their database as not eligible for upgrade for some reason.

I just went to check a serial number on a old used V1 and it says “Our upgrade program for serial number XXXXXXXXXX is temporarily unavailable. When the program resumes, it will be announced here”.

Tried two other serial numbers from eBay as well. Same message.

Maybe if they're so old they're not reissuing a new V1 for them anymore.
Could this mean there's something new coming down the pipeline?
 

thanks

My 3.8945 says it has the latest software as well (interestingly) and that no update is available or needed. Aww man, I was hoping there was a V2 coming out soon. :D

What’s odd is that just last week the same serial number showed the upgrades needed (a lot, about $289).

I hope there is not a V2! I just got a $360 returned unit 2 weeks ago! Ack!

Its giving you a weird message either of 2 reasons:

1. Its broken

2. They are updating it.


I believe 2, an update might be in the mix. And update with VR could be hardware or software. Reviving the V1 with extreme range would be a fatal blow to all detectors!

But it could be the usual get your hopes up tease and blah....ill never give up hope though i know mike has to have an ace up his sleeve, its just a about when he will play that card...

Really strange that it works on some serial numbers and not others. When this was first posted, I used serial numbers off of eBay to test. It worked fine. Now, other people here are reporting the same results as the OP. Very strange. Is it possible it only gives this message to the older detectors that they were basically swapping with new ones instead of upgrading them? Seems it works fine on the RDs that only require minor upgrades. They might be discontinuing (possibly temporarily) that particular upgrade/swap program for very old RDs.

Now would be a good time to announce something new with the R7 due to release soon, steal the spotlight from Uniden.
For better or worse, VR beats to their own drum. Doubt they time anything based on anything other than their own preparedness and product readiness.
