Exactly the point I've tried to make!

None, but if we keep putting bandages on it rather than pushing for 
the manufacturers to do it right we'll keep waiting for a long time.

I know if I had the choice between displaying a symbol or the SSID 
I'd pick the symbol every time. There's no reason we need to waste 
2-3 characters on displaying a relatively meaningless SSID. Use the 
space for something meaningful!

It sounds like the Kenwood D710 is half-way there. Let's push to get 
that last little bit fixed.
