Question Detector Tools Pro vs Classic: ?? WHY

I have a Max 360 (Not the "c" version)
I have installed BOTH Detector Tools Pro AND the Classic version.
I don't understand WHY the "Pro" version exists.
With the Classic Version I can do everything - including backup and restore of my saved locations. The PRO version does NOT appear to have any backup or restore capability, nor the ability to clear the Max-360 locations database.
NOR does the "Pro" version remind me that my Defender subscription has expired like the Classic version does.
Tools Pro seems like "Baby Tools" compared to Classic.
Please - let me know why I should keep the Pro version installed.

My understanding is that the classic version is in the process of slowly being phased out.

Yes, I believe Escort is trying to simplify DT Pro and make it more reliable by removing features that only work with specific models, and which can cause legacy issues as the models (US & Int'l) and their features evolve. Once everything is moved to DT Pro I speculate this would also make it easier for them to make a simplified MAC version and keep it updated too.

Since certain features in DT can now be handled by smart phones/EL in addition to on the RD itself, DT becomes less important over time other than as straight update tool. This is just my speculation but it seems to make sense as DT also has to keep up with Windows & MAC OS changes as well.
