IT IS A DUMB IDEA! to have to register and update a brand new radio just to get rid of a nag screen. The radio needs to work out of the box. They had their hands full before with updates and returns with the DX8, and now they are INTENTIONALLY introducing what some would consider a flaw, or at best a bothersome/nuisance bit of code.
I apologize for repeating a small rant, but come on HH, no need to put spam on your flagship radio!!
Not having internet access in 2012 is a mind blowing thought. I personally consider the internet as a basic necessity along with power and water!
