V2.60 need to update?

After reading the release notes for V2.62 I am a bit confused, does v2.60 suffer from the "SD corruption" bug, or was this introduced in V2.61? What about V2.49?

And finally, do all Flex 6000 series radios contain SD-memory cards?

Yes,  all 6000 series have SD cards.

Guess I can answer my own question... Just switched on my Maestro and the 2.60 was gone. I had only to choose to upgrade to 2.62 or down to 2.49 to run my radio. So I assume Flex really want to push everyone to the latest version ( or stay on 2.49).

At this time v2.4.9 is not a safe version. You run the risk of SD card problems. A new release is soon coming for V2.4.9,,,,   It is strongly suggested that you follow the advice and upgrade.

I really don’t care to upgrade beyond v2.4.9, too many issues that have come up with subsequent releases and there are features I don’t really care about unless it ensures better stability or better noise filtering. I’ll wait for the new release that impacts v2.4.9 only...

Agree Rob....I was running V2.61 but had problems with TX drop out etc. on CW. Downgraded to 2.49 and is now stable. Very loath to change now.

I hope your SD card hangs in there for you till the update comes for your version 2.4.9

Good morning or good evening ,
The big change for me with version 2.6.2, is the latency, now more stable at 1 and 2 ms.
