    Default APX keypad lock, concentric switch, firmware?

    I am trying to set the concentric switch on the APX 7000 to lock the keypad. In the CPS, under Radio Ergonomics, I set the function for the concentric switch to Keypad Lock on both the conventional and trunked channels. After loading the radio, the display shows the keypad locking, but it doesn't stop any of the keys from working. I am assuming that this is because the firmware needs to be updated - the radio has 05.01.05. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a firmware update I need to load that would correct this? Thanks - Matt

    I would upgrade to firmware R09.05.00 or I think firmware R10.00.00 just got released. I think Mars posted something about firmware 10 release

    If you read the thread, you'll see that only the CPS is out. No firmware yet.

    Ok, thanks for the help. We rely on the APX7000 fireground tone, and that's more important than the channel lock, so I might not be able to do the update if it means trading that off. I'll have to give it a try and see what happens.

    What is the Fireground tone you speak of? Is it just the evac tone?

    Thanks for all the responses...the problem was the firmware. Side key lock wasn't introduced until 05.05. I appreciate the help.
