Scala G9 firmware 1.3 update - fm stations voice feedback and mp3 control!

Hi all
For whoever has this setup

Happier now to be a Scala G9 owner!

As per Cardo support there is a new firmware 1.3 available for the G9 either single or power pack. This is major news and in fact 3 consecutive updates since 1.0 (or 1.1 can´t remember) that was the one available so far, and each of them with improvements, I would consider the most striking ones fm station voice feedback and mp3 voice control. It´s great to know it can be programmed with new voice functions as well as a other bits and pieces

Don´t know if what I posted in
has been solved but I´ll cross my fingers

here´s the changelog at
