Exactly what does factory reset of 6600M include and not include in the reset?

I know it resets all the profiles and settings but specifically what else does it reset? For example, would you have to re-download the SmartSDR version as in the initial set up and reset any current smartlinks with your computer and/or IOS, or would all the links stay the same without requiring re-linking. I have currently no need to reset at the present time but settings do get kind of messed up as your learning curve improves and may be better to start over again. Really enjoying myself learning everything about my first Flexradio. Thanks.

Factory reset does not kill the SSDR install or smartlink. It resets all the processors. It mostly is done to clear the persistence. So saving your profiles so you can simply restore things the same is important.

Thanks Bill. It probably would be a good idea for Flex to include that in the manual for a future update.

The manual does suggest saving profiles for importing them.

As I just purchased once of the Factory Fresh Demo Unit 6600M at the Dayton Show.  I do not have the unit or manual so if it is in the manual I am sorry to ask.  What is the procedure to preform the Factory Reset?  I want to d this to return, if any, "playing in the sandbox, settings that may have occurred at the show.  Don't want to get the radio and have a "false" does not work and find out someone set some menu setting that the radio does not like.  TNX in advance.

You purchased it at the dayton show the official response from flex when asked if any would be available for purchase at the show was a definite no here in the community .... I guess they are acting like our president now saying something one day and doing the contrary the next ... sheesh you cant trust anyone anymore!
