Hope everyone is listening to you guys, zone charts are a bearcat to follow.
Mine are plasticized and mounted on velcro, the techs carry it when doing the "walk through", so mine are predicated on where one is when looking at the zone chart. Now that I describe it, I wonder if anyone but me could ever had read my charts.

Yup, these days, unlike mine of futurepast, you guys can have it all on your laptop or various hand-held devices. The word on the street is RM will quit the remote and go to a apps system, which will not only map the site, but enable programming changes, etc.

What street and whose word? I can see the apps system that's a no brainer but I don't get any indication that remote is going anywhere.

I guess RB didn't notice that the MI series actually spells miseries when the space is removed.

Something for you to check on when you're at the factory.
