All right. Give it a try for a month or two and see for yourself. Then you can decide if you will keep it or not. And you can share your impressions too. You can always go back and forth with every firmware which is the best part with Uniden. It's not once and for all, 10 minutes engagement at the most. I have tried three firmware versions for three days in a row and it was like a child's play to downgrade and upgrade. Firms 1.50 and 1.53 require v.1.28 of the loading program. Preferably choose the recovery mode and don't forget to factory reset at the end before reconfiguring.Awesome I will. I consider updating then (I'm from Europe too).
