ICOM NEXT firmware 3.14.10 is tested on forum. Here is feedback for your reference:
I test it this morning on a CIC of an E90 and an E60. And now also ICOM NEXT is flashing like HELL. So the bug of slow flashing CICR is gone with this upgrade. This I can confirm. THANK, it was long waiting but it was worth it.
