I have the GPSDO installed on my 6500. All is working fine except when I power down I do not get this solid amber led. Also when I power up it serches for the sat signals and re locks. Is this a future enhacment or am I mis-understanding something.

The answer to to topic post is yes.

You must enable the GPSDO form the Radio Setup->GPS tab.

Once you do this if you power off the radio from the front panel, the power LED should illuminate yellow.

If you remove power from the radio, it will turn off completely and the GPSDO will need to go through a full initialization the next time you fully boot up the radio (not just apply power).
