Just wondering if the DFR7 has newer firmware and RLC DB compared to the LRD950?

So can 950 owners update the 4/4/16 database onto their units? I looked at Uniden webside for 950 and DB is dated 11/18/15.

They're just inviting trouble by having the DFR7 Product Support tab point to the LRD950 Firmware/Database. i.e. confusion and additional requests for support. I see users trying to flash the 7 with 950 "updates". The 950 firmware would most likely error out, similar to trying to load LRD850 FW onto a 950.

It's possible that the DFR7 FW (once available for download) could be run through HEXEDIT, with any reference to LRD950 changed to DFR7.. Could also have yourself a nice paperweight if it flashes but doesn't "work".

Hoping the 950 isn't abandonware.

I'm curious as to whether the RLC and SC database is actually "new" or just the same database as the 11/18/2015 database, but has been re-issued with a different date for the DFR7.

Well once it's released it would be easy to run just a diff command between the two firmwares (latest 950 and DR7).
