    Can you have only one station set to a "grow-in" program, or do all the stations have to switch over to "grow-in? 

    I'm thinking all stations have to be in either "Auto Adjust" or "Standard" so the answer is no?

    1. Yes. The Grow-in program can best be associated with the memory recall function on your calculator. You STORE your normal operating program first, then make the changes in the programming you desire. This may be as little as a single zone or complete change in programming. Once the changes have been made, go to the GROW-IN menu selection and select the number of days you want the current programming to operate. At the end of the desired number of days, the controller automatically "recalls" your normal program and begins operating under that information.

    2. No, with controller version 3.10 and higher you have the option in SPRINKLER TYPE to choose STANDARD mode for an individual zone. This zone would them operate using your ZONE RUN TIMES with adjustments based on the seasonal adjust programmed. This zone would now be under your run time and ignore the weather based run times for that zone.

    Is there a way to update my 3.08 firmware version to 3.10 (or the latest version) to get this feature?
