Has Barry / Ronald Changed Colour?

Thanks to Paul Mc that’s messaged me with the simple question above. And the answer appears to be YES to his question. It appears that Ronald and Truman are face lifted. Did anything change otherwise? Not in my territory but yes colour appears to be different indeed. I think they use same front with different name sticker and the rest is the same so maybe cheaper way to keep colour universal across some models.

Want the real answer with a guarantee of what changed? Ask in France they’ll know (maybe)

And to your other question I’ve no answer. I think firmware must have changed in the Ronald as initial release was poor and weird channel ideas. But again ask them in France. I offer an un educated guess of yes but who knows?

For what it’s worth I like the newer looking colour than the older ones!

  1. Hmmm… Is it not simply that the protective film is reflecting and making it look different? I can see the little tab for removing the film. Oh well, time will tell.


  2. For Ronald ….Push Channel Selector and Hold Band now you are in the Menu select Color with Rotate the Channel Selector than Push Channel Selector for confirmation….


  3. Turn Radio OFF than Press Mode and Band simultaneously and turn Radio ON than you can Change the Color with UP and Down than turn Radio OFF than ON thats it …
