I just called Beltronics to ask them whether there are any updates available for my remote 975R before I install it in my new car. The Bel rep insisted that the unit is not, and never was upgradable, even though I read this description to him right off the back of the box:
Then again, the guy also refused to believe me when I pointed out this detector contained the latest "M4" platform, and that the FCC ID number QL4G7M4R printed on my unit was just issued in October 2006.Software Upgradable - an industry first!
VECTOR LR Remote is the first detector with an eye on tomorrow. Flash Microcontroller Technology provides the highest capability to reprogram the detector's software as the threat of new traffic Radar monitoring technologies, such as Spread Spectrum, emerge. No other detector offers comparable technology to provide you with industry leading performance now, and into the future.
So can anyone tell me if this unit is upgradable or not? And if it is, how can I get through to someone at Bel who will actually give me an informed answer about whether there are any updates available for mine?
