After Pressing the Power Button the first time, The FLEX-6700 In the display disappears and the light remains GREEN. Then I need to press it a second time for the Radio to shut off and the Light to then turn GOLD or YELLOW Is all of this NORMAL ?

    My 6500 typically shuts down within 5-10 seconds of pressing ONCE. There have been reports of almost 90 seconds in some cases. The "double click" shutdown does seem to be immediate. Don't know what the difference is.

    No, it is not the typical behavior. We have added updates to the software that should make the radio shutdown process more consistent.

    Just confirming same. Have seen on 6700 with GPS-DO. Two presses if you're in a hurry to shut down.
