COBRA 18R2 and 36M/72M Firmware 6.0.8 Patch Release

We have released a 6.0.8 patch fix for the 18R2, 36M, and 72M. This update is only required if you are currently running the 6.0.x family of firmware versions and only requires the module and 18R2 processor to be updated. This update is a cumulative update and will also include the fixes found in 6.0.6 and 6.0.7. Those looking to upgrade to the 6.0.x family of firmware can do so using the COBRA Reprogramming software. If you are already running a version of 6.0 and wish to upgrade to 6.0.8, please see the update instructions at the end of this article. You do not need to use the COBRA Reprogramming Software to update to the patch release
