    3.824 has a glitch in that the K-band auto mute options don't work. Otherwise it's identical to 3.825. Personally, I don't find those options useful so I don't see a problem. I guess it's up to you.

    I would call Valentine Research to insure that the upgrade will be free to the 3.825 and not worry about it.

    Just ordered mine today, Penny told me that they have been shipping the 3.825 for a while? I will return mine if it has the 3.824. I hope VR is smart enough to use 3.825 if its a working firmware.

    As I said earlier, the woman told me it would be 3.825....pretty bummed that it is 3.824. I emailed them and will call tomorrow, I had planned to use the automute...does it not work at all now or is it just in L mode (I run A mode).

    Automute just works in the two logic modes. All-bogeys always reports everything.

    I am sure this has been beaten to death on here, but with automute on, would that possibly cause you to miss an instant on up ahead?

    It's possible, but the unmute on 4 bars feature (on by default unless you change option E) will minimize this.

    Any of the automute features if turned on can increase the risk of missing a real encounter, but VR designed it to minimize the risk of this, with the E and F settings.

    However, if the first instant-on burst is below 4 bars, and the next one is "you're IT", you could get caught off guard. That's the risk of using automute.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?
