    Default V1 3.818 vs 3.825 upgrade ?

    I called V1 today and request to upgrade mine V1 from 3.818 to 3.825, and the ref said I do not need too, cause 3.825 is only add PoP for Europe and mine already has PoP for US (based on the serial #) , so it's not needed, unless I want to paid them to add PoP for Europe, which I don't plan to use

    I have heard 3.825 is not just for PoP, but more of the bug fix, can your guy advise ?

    Thanks

    the first V1 I had was already 3.824

    the bug that was fixed was the (J)unk alert and autmuting of K (7)

    I am not sure about 3.821

    The supposed benefit of going from 3.818 to either 3.819 or 3.825 is that they fix the problem with "J"-ing out real Ka signals. However there have been numerous reports that they still do it. I have never seen it with 3.824 but I have to believe that the phenomenon is still out there. That said, I don't think it's worth your money or trouble.

    Something else to consider is that the only difference between 3.819 and 3.825 is Euro mode, which you don't need. You would want to ask them for 3.819 which is free, whereas 3.825 requires hardware as well and costs extra.

    That's my impression, but people who have actually done the 3.818 to 3.819 upgrade would know better. There are plenty of them on the forum.

    Hi guys,

    could some V1 fanatic make up an list of version(updates) and features peraires of each in the Sticky area???

    That would serve many V1 users asking should I or should I not ....

    I do not use my 3.818 daily and have had almost no Js. The one I remember, there were no police to be seen.

    So I have been waiting on the 3.325 problems to be solved or Christmas (which involves 3,000 miles of travel) to upgrade.
