Hello. There is a problem in firmware 2.03 and last(2.01, 2.02) (retevis rt84). – incorrect operation of the scan function in MR / VFO mode.

VFO mode: If you stop scanning, the frequency on the screen returns to the frequency that was on the screen at the time the scan started. It is not possible to stop scanning on the current channel.

MR mode: If you stop scanning, the channel on the screen returns to the one that was on the screen at the time the scan started. It is not possible to stop scanning on the current frequency.

Video(scanning in mr mode): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvMUgVCfbJA

I need a fixed firmware.
