Default Is the new magnum firmware worth it? Does it have better filtering?

I have a STI Driver as well as a STI Magnum. I was thinking of sending them both in and upgrading the driver to a magnum and updating the firmware on the magnum to the most current version.

I'm just wondering if the traffic signal rejection and false alerts are any better with the upgrade. I seem to pick up a lot of false alerts on both units and recently I am picking up blind spot sensors from other vehicles. Specifically Acura mdx's.

Anyone have the most current version of the firmware and can let me know what its like?

Due to the increase in sensitivity, the Magnum upgrade will probably increase the number of K band false alerts that you receive. Although it may reduce false alerts, TSR is not designed to eliminate false alerts from vehicles collision avoidance systems, only from stationary traffic flow sensors. Using Auto mode will also help reduce these alerts, but at the expense of lowered sensitivity.

The Beltronics GT-7 offers excellent radar detection performance while rejecting most of the alerts from these systems.
