According to all the documentation on Traeger's website, i should be able to set the temperature to 500F, however the max allowable setpoint on my display screen is 450F. AI would appreciate someone enlightening me here. Thanks

there is a firmware upgrade to the pro 575 & 780 that will allow temps to 500 as well as fix temperature swings. It is my understanding that the upgrade will be pushed out sometime in the next few weeks. Some people have gotten it already but others (like myself) are waiting for it. Traeger is not giving a more definitive timeline, so we wait.

I'm on V2.00 as well. The update to V2.01 has been out since March. I don't know why some people have it & others don't. So frustrating...

Supporting 500 degrees requires an updated Config Version as well ... 03.010 is the current Config data version for the 780 ... my 780 is still on Firmware v2.00.01 and Config 03.007 ...

What firmware does your 780 have? Mine has V 02.00.01 and it will go to 500°. At first it didn’t, but then after an update? it started doing it.

It is not the Firmware that allows for setting the grill to 500 degrees, but the updated Config data file - 03.010 is the current Config data version for the 780 ... people have reported the grill allowing for a setting of 500 degrees with Firmware 02.00.01 (January) and 02.01.0 (March), assuming they had 03.010 installed as the Config version ... we're awaiting a May Firmware Update that will hopefully allow those of us in "update jail" (presently @ 02.00.01 / 03.007) to get the latest Firmware / Config files installed after it is released ...

Well that figures ... https://www.traegergrills.com/status does not show a 03.009 release at all in their Historical Release Log ...

January 2020 was the 2.00.01 / 03.007 Update ... still at 450 degrees
March 2020 was the 2.01.0 / 03.010 Update ... allows for 500 degrees

I guess 03.009 was a non-documented Feb-early Mar Config data release?

They don’t show Firmware v2.00.01 either though and that definitely happened.

My Pro is at v2.01.00 config 04.012. Max temp 450 not 500.

Guess the left hand doesn't know what the right one is doing. LOL
