Improved voting function
Operating modes such as conventional mode and voting mode are programmed according to the memory zone. Once you program the voting mode to a memory zone, you can easily start voting mode operation by changing the zone setting.
Voting group name and voted channel name indication
Re-vote after talk function ... Automatically restart vote scanning when a call is finished.

Lone worker function
The lone worker function is a substitute for the man down function. When the radio is not operated for a preset period (1 to 255 minutes), the radio sounds a beep requiring you to push any button. If a button is not pressed, an emergency signal is automatically transmitted and informs co-workers or a dispatcher that something may have happened to the individual worker.

Enhanced Scanning features
New scanning features have been added allowing migration from other radio brands.
Mode dependent scan ... when the user changes the operating channel, the scanning list automatically changes following that channel setting.
Tx channel programmable ... The Tx channel is the channel the radio transmits when the user pushes the PTT button while scanning. The Tx channel can be programmable per scanning list from start, last detected, priority and pre-programmed channels.
Talk back function ... allows you to transmit on the detected channel when scanning stops or soon after scanning resumes, prior to the Tx channel setting.
Talk back timer beep ... alerts you of the end of the talk back time with a beep sound.
Nuisance delete ... Users can temporary skip a busy channel from the scanning list.
Monitor key action ...A user can stop a scan when pushing the monitor button.
