After upgrading to 1.6.21 amber light on front panel stays on after 6500 shutdown

After I upgraded to SSDR 1.6.21, my 6500 displays an amber light on the front panel.  If I remove DC power, the light extinguishes.  When I apply power, the amber light comes back on.  After I push the power button, the light changes from amber to green  and radio operation is normal.  I saw a past post regarding the amber light being associated with the GPS option.  Is there any concern with this condition.

This is because the remote power control is enabled so the connector on the back can be used to power the radio on and off. If you aren't using that feature you can disable in the Radio Setup - Radio tab. When in disabled if the front power button is pressed the radio will fully turn off with no LED displaying.
