I'm going to be taking a couple roadtrips this summer from Indiana to Tallahassee FL and from Indiana to Pensacola FL. I'm going to send my V1 for a tune-up, but I'm getting a little edgy about the firmware. I purchased my V1 several months ago on e-Bay. (I've already purchased a CD and discovered it is NOT stolen.) The V1 works great, comparable to those belonging to several V1 users that I know. My question is this: I have v 3.789. This is a pre-POP version. Many people here say that 3.813 or 819 are the best because they were the last pre-POP versions made. I'm not worried about POP where I live. 80-90% of LEOs here are on Ka.
Should I just get a tune-up, or should I go for the upgrade to 3.872? Cost to upgrade is not an issue.
