I have a top-of-the-line Flex 5000 with all the available options (including UHF/VHF). I spent over $5000 and hardly used it (various reasons). Now it seems "left for dead" by the manufacturer and community.
Find it outside, take it, please. Too worthless to even carry to the trash.
We continue to service and support the FLEX-5000 along with all of our other models. The repair shop services them every day and we provide free help desk and phone support as well. Your statement is incorrect.
