Because that's the latest update they ship from manufacturer. If it had 1.00 then you would need to wonder if all the Hardware updates would have been done including the service bulletin issued for the early models.

If it came with 2.02 installed that means you have a recent model (hardware)

Nice. Surprised no Android version. But this should work and even if not, I can talk work into buying IOS for "testing" purposes, I had to borrow IOS to get student wireless printing working and I think I just found some more bugs and need IOS full time

Yes I got it thanks. But no way to test till I get the sensors.

Looks like I bought the DX8 at just the right time now that this is all coming out.

Seems so. When it came out it was very frustrating, no sensors at all, and they came veeeery slowly...
Getting better every day.

I heard rumors that the glider update for the DX8 will be free of charge. If it is true: Good decision

It's from HH Germany. Actually no rumor, but kind of official information.

Maybe only for German customers

Good decision, everything else would have caused a shitstorm
As far as I remeber, when the DX8 came out, there was a glider update in the talk.
Marketing. Maybe they announced the 30€ update to see how the reaction is.....
