• 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.

GP 340 CPS error (1049)

Not open for further replies.


Jun 4, 2014

I have a few GP 340 that I am having difficulty in reading or programming, I get the following error message “Radio not supported by this CPS (error 1049). I have tried other versions of the CPS (R03.11.16 being the latest version) and get the same message, also checked the firmware and it is the latest version (R03.17.01).

I have tried reflashing the radio but get the same result.

However I can read it using the global tuner, which gave me the model number and having checked the model number, the radio is a GP 340 (just in case a 600 series radio had been put into the case).

Just in case I did try the GP 600 CPS (version R00.08.08) and this said the radio data was invalid.

Anyone come across this before and know how to resolve it
