Here is a faster way to download all 3 files needed with no timer or download limits reached nag.

Dont forget to unzip them once downloaded. If this has helped you, you can thank me as a response here on this thread.

That's because it's a file share site. Download and scan with anti virus if you want to be sure.

FYI I downloaded and then scanned the file with the latest version of Kaspersky Internet Security and the "668 upgrade.rar" file is clean.

Same antivirus results here, however, it took three tries to get the actual download to start. On the first try, a new window popped up, requesting that I install a "privacy add-on". Closed the window promptly.

The second try asked me to join Zippyshare movies. Again, closed the window.

The third try started the actual download.

Just an FYI.

Default PRO668/WS1080 instructions?

Am about to 'take the plunge' and convert my 668 to the 1080. My question is, which manual should I now use for references? Is it 100% now going to be a WS1080, according to the ( Easier to Read Whistler WS1080/1088 Handheld Scanner and Software Manual ) manual? Thanks!

Hello,

You need to use the WS-1080 Ez-Scan software and follow the WS-1080 manual. Do not use Ez-Scan to update the CPU software, other updates are okay.

The Pro-668 firmware uses slightly different menus, with some items labeled differently.

Update your DSP Firmware in the WS1080 software. Do not update CPU.

from pg12 instructions.

--------------------------------------------------
7) Go into ezscan (NOT iSCAN) do the DSP UPDATE, library updates and/or restore from archive or. transfer database if needed. via the cable or card reader DO NOT ALLOW A FIRMWARE UPDATE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AND TESTING SHOWS ANOTHER FIRMWARE WORKS 100%

In addition to updating the CPU firmware to version 3.8 on your PRO-668 you didn't say if you also updated the DSP firmware to version 3.0. If not, you have to update the DSP firmware on the PRO-668 for DMR to work and you do that by using the Whistler EZ Scan PC program (NOT the Radio Shack iScan PC program).

try again. mine did the same thing about 30 min. ago.
Your scanner should look this.
uP Appl Ver: U3.8 <--- This is your CPU Firmware. Do not update ever.
DSP Voc Ver: 1.6
DSP App Ver: 3.0 <--- This is your DSP Firmware. Make sure it is 3.0 (released December 15, 2016) Upgrade this in ezScan software.
DSP build#: 101

Following the link provided, I'm getting "File does not exist on this server". Tried from 2 different computer, 2 different OS version, same result.

Has the archive been removed?

Thanks in advance for help with this.

Probably was removed from the server due to copyright issues/concerns.
