• 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.

If you clicked on the M2020.01 CPS 2.0 then yes that's the latest one posted. It's what I get when I download..

Unless you are doing only one or two devices you should be in Radio Manager going forward for everything.

Features and Functions for managing a system in the Radio Manager that are not in the CPS any longer.

On a different note, what is in the new subscribers for firmware now ?

I have a newer "Enabled" model 5550e made in NOV 2018 that shipped with 2.09 and it has everything listed as free except for Capacity Max so I assume that is probably the way the current "Enabled" radios are configured also.
Maybe he received new radios with firmware that require it?
That's almost certainly the case since the radios are shipping with 2.10 now.

Actually, that was my question. Since M2020.01 should be in the factory I was wondering if he got 2.10 or M20.
It would depend on when the radio was actually made. I'm not sure if the M20 is shipping yet. It's been a minute since I have picked up any brand new radios, but there are many "New" radios with 2.10 that have not been sold yet that are basically new-old-stock now.

A new radio will always leave the factory with the most current firmware available, regardless of when it was actually manufactured.

Wish that were true, but they do not unpack update and repack the inventory before it ships to a dealer. Some dealers I work with assume that a firmware update has to be part of the commissioning process so they don't under estimate the cost of deploying the system. . This is due to being burned in the past.

I have seen brand new radios where the FW version is marked on the tag, & a separate small tag next to it with the next FW bump that was done while the radio was still at the factory.

Yes! My friend bought a 7550e a few years ago and on the tag it was R02.08, and on the sticker it said R02.09. Not common but I have definitely seen it before.
