When I updated my R30 it completely reset. So make sure you save CSVs of all your memory, scan edges, and GPS data.

HRO had some in stock, but it looks like its gone. Really wish Icom would just let the dealers sell the keys and put it online for download.

Haven't used other software. CS-R30 is very simple and straight forward. However, you can't edit multiple channels at once. If you wanted to change multiple channels from AM to FM, you'd have to do it one by one. It's probably too simple for the price tag. The other software options look like a better value.

Thanks ICOM for removing the scan edge limitations. It was driving me crazy having to re-set the mode every time I searched the USA UHF aviation band. Also I really like the DUP frequency check function.

It appears ARC30 is not currently working with firmware version 1.10. I tried to copy data from the scanner into ARC30 to have a play with it but it's not working. The software does appear to be receiving any data from the scanner.

Ok it looks like the firmware update resets the USB settings. Just follow the instructions in green/blue in the Read/Write window in ARC30 and then it should work again.

Should I upgrade my R-30 to the 1.10 firmware? If so what issues do I need to fix once upgraded?

I've heard that USB connection needs to be restored (so I can use the Butel beta software) and that I will have to reload my files. Anything else? I haven't used the GPS so nothing saved there.

It was operator error. It helps to export the data to the card before you try and export it to the software...
