Correct. You have to have access to a V75 receiver as it is the only piece that has a USB connection. With it you can flash any other Line 6 2.4G wireless unit by connection it to Line 6 Monkey.

That's strange and more than a little disappointing. Guess we're stuck with old firmware.
We couldn't have offered firmware upgrades until there was a means to connect the devices to a computer. We decided that we could do it with the V75 receiver by adding a USB port and that it was better to offer upgrades to those who could gain access to an XD-V75 than to not offer it at all.
The 2nd document you quote above, http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2585 explains that you can use the XD-V75 receiver to upgrade your other Line 6 XD-V and Relay wireless products via its USB and antenna output ports.
If you don't have access to an XD-V75 receiver then please contact your dealer or customer support to see what arrangements can be made to provide the service.
The wireless team at Line 6 is committed to offering an upgrade path on future products, the XD-V75 is the first on this path.
Thanks for using Line 6 wireless.

I'm getting a fauly xd-v70 (handheld version) replaced with a new unit, which is being shipped to my merchant. Is that model being shipped with the new firmware, or do I have to buy a $600 xd-v75 to upgrade my unit?
