It strikes me that this manufacturer might be advised to bring out a little stand-alone programmer that can be plugged into the transmitter.

The programmer device could probably be manufactured and retailed for US$50 and it would allow "at the field" updates/changes to be made without recourse to a PC. A simple LCD display ($8), a microcontroller with USB interface ($5), some switches, a cable and a case ($10).

That would allow such a system to start competing with the low-end of the "big name" systems and might encourage more sales into clubs where someone already has this gear. ie: several people could share the one programmer if they needed to.
