David - do you see the addition of P25 trunking talkgroup 'late entry' capability on the roadmap for future firmware? This is to complement the current 'channel-grant' implementation which can miss transmissions if the radio did not decode the control channel at the precise moment of channel-grant.

I have to test every facet of the Firmware and Software. When we release a new firmware update i will provide a list of changes and improvements.
Ummmmm Okayyyyyyy , but that didn't answer my question.

With a nice word such as "Edication"... I was expecting bullet points on what is being tested out by you and your beta testers. Perhaps better words would be "Setting the Expectations of the customers".

Either way its OK. I'm selling my G4 and is listed already.

I agree. David has been very helpful, and has been approachable.

No one is picking on him. We just have more questions then there are answers... It shouldn't be construed that way.

In one of his latest messages it made it seem like he was the programmer. He stated the word "I" in the message. If that's the case. It's all good.

From day 1 I have wanted the G4/5 series to work. To be the best thing since sliced bread. I could've easily convinced an agency to buy these units. I spent the money on the G4 for my testing. No one ever reached out to me and said... Here try the G5, these are the improvements. But unfortunately, that hasn't been the case. There have been multiple issues that have been expressed by the core group of people that these units are meant for. You look at my direct history and you'll see that I'm trying for this company to knock it out of the ballpark. But for some reason, it's been a lackeys responses. Some good reviews, and then some bad ones.

That's exactly what I'm hoping for. Remember the discussions a few years ago about the hopes that a company out there would manufacture a profession grade scanner without all the bells and whistles that scanners have. Lots of folks that use profession grade radios and do the non-affiliate trunk scan thing would benefit from such a product immensely.

Oh geez, that would be another big problem.

Are you just being a smart alec? The word David used was 'edification', not 'edication'. Be kind and thankful that David posts here with real information, not marketing speak like we get from certain other companies.

Has a final price been set for this update or future update as it is still a ghost in my book.

Why would David, or any other company for that matter, release confidential information with bullet points on a public forum on what is being developed for future firmware?

Most folks on here have not been involved in product manufacturing and simply do not know any better. Ask away with the questions but more than likely you won't get an answer until the product is released to the public.

I just want to say I am 1000% happy with my G4, as it provides absolutely flawless P25 decode. That has never ever happened with GRE and Uniden scanners I've owned.

If someday new features are added, then that's great. But the G4 is more than living up to the primary reason I bought it.

Great work David & Unication!

Im very happy with both of my G4 units (giving one to my dad though when the city he lives in goes Phase 2. and Unication has the update) .
I think they have done a good job at creating a device like the G4/G5. Since these are in my opinion first gen devices that the company has created im looking forward to the Phase 2 update, seeing if they add any features that we scanner people want, and seeing what the next line of products has to offer, if and when they decide to go that route.
