Hmm...you should be able to register before you do any updating - that's a UPMan question...

However, the USB cable is available from Scanner Master, it's called the USB-1. The following 2 links (anything in blue) give you some hints/kinks about making the connection between the scanner and PC (it's written for XP, but there should be enough detail there for Vista or Win7 to use as a guide), and the 2nd is to Uniden's TWiki site - at the bottom is the link for the Prolific drivers.

He'll need to load the ESN loader before registering (if he's on the very first firmware) to that he has an ESN/checksum

The suggested cables are USB-1or any serial/USB adapter can be bought at radioshack or eBay (ensure it comes with drivers)

Right you are. It's been so long since I did mine, I'd forgotten the exact steps. 73 Mike

It would be a lot easier to answer your questions if we didn't have to decrypt them. Sentences, punctuation, etc. would be a big help. There is no requirement that you do so, of course, but you'll increase the amount of help you get if you make it easier for us to respond.
