    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Hi

Before I do firmware upgrade I want to make sure I am using the correct firmware.
Currently my Radio version is:
FIRMWARE VERSION : D002.034
CP VERSION: 0.127

I have no idea if this radio has GPS or not.
in the back it just says model : MD-380, output 5W, Frequency 400-480Mhz

looking at the steps here

The last two lines of your post gives you your answer. It says 'For radios with firmware D003.xxx and D002.xxx.' You state that your current firmware version is D002.034 - Therefore, according to your post, you should use new version D003.020 to update your firmware.
