    Motorola APX CPS 23.-- with APX7500 not communicating

    Had absolutely no issues until yesterday, when out of nowhere, CPS will not communicate with my 7500. Historically, I plug in the programming cable to the APX and Windows asks if I should connect to the network, I accept, and all is fine. Yesterday it stopped working all together. I...

    CPS software recognizes APX7000 but not APX6000

    Hi, First post here. Back in 2013, we purchased several Mot APX7000 portables and the CPS software (v9, then upgraded to v10). This software still works to program our APX7000's. Just tried to program an APX6000 and I'm hitting a driver issue. When I connect this radio, Windows goes through...

    Problems on Professional GP300/GM300 series CPS (all versions)

    Hello all, First of all I find it very strange and not logical and even misleading that it is not possible to program the actual GP300 GM300 with these CPS's. One would expect that at least for the name of it. Question1: is anyone aware of a windows based CPS for GP300? I only know DOS CPS for...
