That is always a good idea. I suggest rewriting the file to the unit after an upgrade.

I agree. I'm not a huge fan of the hue that "Blue" creates. In a perfect world, I'd be able to specify my own RGB values, but I'm being picky.

Does anyone think changing the background color will lower the battery charge faster??

Color change under step 4 where you list all your talk groups. A nice little feature. In future PPS updates is it possible to rewrite over the old version or do a self uninstall?

Does this new firmware contain the fix for late entry? I'm still missing some transmissions with the latest firmware installed.

Or the fix for the hanging on the frequency after a TG has finished transmitting and it picks up an unprogrammed TG on that frequency saying itís the previous TG
Sorry thatís confusing but those with the issue know what Iím talking about

I got the firmware installed with no problems. The beta of the PPS seems to be running slower and I've had it respond so slowly a couple of times, my Win 10 gave me the 'program is not responding' dialog.

If I have to return to the previous PPS will it work with the new firmware?

I am not sure how well I like the 'color' option we shall see on that. I am also not sure I like the 'default' for the enable voice in the zone setup. Another that I will have to see what happens.

Default Color Change

Have updated my Unication GS to the latest firmware and have color boxes checked on a number of TG systems but am not seeing any background change when the channels are active. Am I missing something somewhere? Any help or walkthrough would be appeciated.

"Checked" or "set to a color"?

I just set some to red, green, blue, etc and reloaded the config - worked.

It works. You need to select the Background Color drop down.

What about the issue with late entry? Was that fixed with this release?
