No manufacturer has any obligation to share anything here about possible updates or developments nor should it be expected. More don't than do for good reasons. We are quite lucky that we are as privy to info as we are.Maybe, just maybe, instead of hiding in the shadows, Uniden could pipe in once in a while, and at least tell the non-special Beta Testers, "Hey everyone. Yes we are still working on wonderful updates and other great things here at Uniden." It is not too much to ask for. I understand how things work, but being totally silent, is unacceptable to me, and many others. Where is the Uniden rep? MIA it seems to me. I don't care if they take a full year to update and give us what they PROMISED in regards to the R7, but going totally silent makes people wonder if the company as abandoned the R7, and moved on to the next R whatever. Peace
*If* the new firmware were to cause other problems, you simply flash back to the previous version.I just want them to get it right the first time. Auto lock outs will make the R7 one of the best and at a very good price. I just don't want the update to cause other problems.
I do the same with the Uniden hardwire kit I installed.One note about Autolockouts and an opportunity to wag the finger at Vortex.... Manual lockouts need not be done on the R7 itself. I just got the thing today and watching his videos he's always demonstrating how to do it on the unit itself. I get it. He is not powering the unit with the cigarette plug-in but I use it. I always use it. And you can simply hit mute twice on the plug and add a location to auto lockouts. I find this significantly easier than doing a blind reach around on the left side of the unit and feeling for the proper button. It's easier to use the button on the plug which is typically in your line of sight right below your right hand.
