Scan Intelligent priority= mixed scan of conventional and trunking talk groups up to 250 members. Seems like a huge scan list capacity.
Lighting Intelligent colors= this is a "radio wide" option that forces you to choose between P25 paging and calling alert colors on your display (which I see green flashing on P25 paging) OR making the channel display a background color in white, green, red or orange.

Report back with more findings.

I kinda always wondered why they didn't have the color options from the beginning.

The pretty colors are nice but most users just want to key the radio and not get confused with colors etc. Just my opinion.
