Hi All,


About 6 months ago I bought a dongle with the idea of upgrading my sound receivers to some of the new sounds. After reading the POOR instructions I am utterly afraid to use it. :eek::confused:



I do understand not to use it to upgrade my transmitter with the plastic keys, but I am afraid to use it to upgrade my transmitter with the rubber keys.



the fear comes from all the warnings about destroying a transmitter or receiver if it is one of the older Crest units.


I have sound receivers from crest and some from Revo 2, but I cant seem to tell them apart, adding to the fear.



So 1. How do you tell the older Crest sound receivers from the new Revo 2 sound receivers, and does it matter??


2. If I can safely reprogram the sound in either can anyone point me to the "dongle for dummies" info that might take me thru a baby step by baby step instruction on reprogramming th4e sound receivers, or if it not already out there could one of our revo experts walk m e thru it?



3 Same for the rubber key transmitters?


I am not in a financial position to blow up anything right now!!! Also anything would be better than the instructions on the site.

Bill, call Navin at the shop, keep trying until you get through.


I have not used mine yet, and have not seen anyone really spell the procedure out in greater detail.

I have used mine a few times without any problems.
I have used it to upgrade TX and RX.
I followed the procedure as outlined online.
If you have doubts, call Navin or Rob as suggested above.

Thanks guys for the input, I will try it and see what happens, and call Navin for help. Robbie has always been a great help to me as well.



Will let you know how things go down the line.


Recent rumors in my RR club are that REvo 2 is not selling well, and may be on the way out, if true I would really be hurt since I made a huge investment in the whole Revolution concept. anyone heard anything about it??
