My R7 has been working rather well for me so far. I don't know if mine is one of the "glow in the dark and screaming I'm here" models (SN .........330).

Is there any word on an update to the current R7 FW? Maybe correct the "stealth" ability to actually be stealthy?

I've never seen a firmware update change how detectable a detector is. It's usually more of a property of the RF hardware in the detector than the software. Unfortunately Spectre RDDs are rare, so it's hard to test your detector and to know how production date affects detectability.

They might change how the display works, but you can't change the RF properties of the hardware through a firmware change (just like @meismyname said)

As for any inkling of firmware updates; no. Nothing has been leaked nor discussed about what it might be and when.
