Welcome to the radio world with all the consumer electronics and their poor RF emissions control.
Your not the only one with that problem. Get use to it or stay away from all the electronics.
Even the best of radios out there get knocked by the same noise floor radiating trash electronics
today. Just about any computer bought today has the minimum effort put into them to keep
the digital noise from being radiated.
Why do you think that most of the public safety radio sites are attempted to be placed in
locations with minimum of consumer electronics near by. It doesn't take a 5th grader to
figure out that the less electronics means a quieter radio location.

The worst part is when I have a Frequency like 462.5500 without any PL/DPL the squelch opens and start blasting near most electonic devices.
please can anyone one help me out hear? If I upgrade the firmware can it help out with this.
