There are 2 functions you cannot select from the Maestro, then you have to first deactivate the Maestro go into SmartSDR, once activated, turn software off and restart Maestro.
Why can't Maestro and SmartSDR not be used at the same time? How dumb is that?
You cannot select de select VOX from the Maestro.
You cannot select Monitor (of TX) from the Maestro.
- Press the TX Menu knob, it's the Mic/Power knob, this brings up TX Menu then you the touch screen and touch VOX to enable/disable
- You also assign VOX to a function button for example F3 and tap F3 to enable/disable (page 113 of manual).
My understanding is the ability to use SmartSDR on a PC and on a Maestro simultaneously is a feature that will be added in the future, my guess (and it's only a guess) when WAN support is released in v2.0 or shortly after.
I use a DDUtil macro to toggle VOX on and off, With either SmartSDR or Maestro. I use a Genovation keypad to trigger the DDUtil macro.
Of course, this does still require access to the PC running DDUtil, so it may not be an option depending on how you intend to use Maestro.

Sorry... but the last time FRS posted a Roadmap they were thoroughly roasted by the Whiners.... it got so bad that they decided to no longer publish their plans... this had a significant beneficial effect of reducing the volume on this community...everyone was happier to be rid of the Whiners...
Personally I hope they do NOT publish a Roadmap again as I do not want to wade through pages and pages of whiny emails ever again....
Anyways.. its like my Tesla.. updates happen with little or no notice .. the car (like the Flex) keeps on getting better and I am always pleasantly surprised to get the free updates when they happen....
I am sure there is professional terminology for the priority-hierarchy matrix that has to happen at every level of interaction. Non-trivial in a a generalized release.
Perhaps a Master/Slave configuration would work easier and earlier?
