I have one, and I set it up with the software.  (Actually I think I used an
opensource software package of some sort, but I don't now remember the
name).  I have not touched the setup in a while, but I don't remember the
issue you were talking about, although I do think you have to use a
separate channel for uplink and downlink.
But one nice thing (if I remember right):  Isn't the data connection a
regular USB mini so you don't need to pay huge amounts for a special cable?

Anyway,  my main problem is that things seem very hard to find--so much
APRS and TNC stuff on the keypad that things like power are hiding in menus.
