• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

Im planning on mounting a CM300 under my aftermarket single din stereo. (where the storage slot is) As far as i can tell, it looks like it will fit in real nicely. Is there any special bracket, faceplate, or mount that i can buy to use for this purpose?? Right now, its on the right side of my center console and it can get hard to see while driving. Id much rather it be under the stereo.

I can not help you with your search but two things to be aware of with this.

1. The radio heat sink can get real hot if you are transmitting a lot and when
mounted in a dash there is little to no airflow across the heat sink so it can be
easy to over heat the radio.

2. With the two way radio mounted in such close proximity to the am-fm radio
you may experience interference to your am-fm radio.
