Should I upgrade from Smart SDR 2.9.2?

If I don't do remote operations, is there any reason for me to upgrade to Smart SDR 3 or above?

    Hi Stewart, The main thing that version 3 brings is multiFLEX. This allows two independent stations to operate the radio's slices (receivers) simultaneously. They can both be local, both remote or one of each. Note that the transmitter is a single shared resource, so only one person can transmit at a time.

    If you don't need this feature, then version 2 is probably fine.

    V3 bring MultiFlex and SmartControl. If you have a Maestro of an M Model, SmartControl is worth it.
