    Hi Paul,

    Latest update to version 2 is V2.7.6. It will be free since that radio already has a version 2 license. Go through the complete update instructions for that version. Get your feet wet with it. It can operate remotely but just with one operating position. The big feature that Version 3 adds is the capability of 2 operating positions. If that is not important to you, you may want to save your money as Flex keeps version 2 updated with bug fixes etc. Many of us keep a radio with just version 2 on it.
