I've had these since they came out and never really used them.
So should I update them? I did some searches & see some issues with updates or was it user error?
What's the benefit on updating the firmware? Or is this older firmware better or actually worse?
What can you do with the new update that the older update cannot do?
Can you update with wifi through the phone or only through a computer?
Will the old firmware even work with the new app for phones and iPad?
I haven't downloaded the app with my phone or iPad yet.

Any feedback pro or con wise is greatly appreciated.
