• 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.

I took the on star radio out of my Impala today. Are these radios worth anything to anyone? It says it is a Motorola radio with 3 watts of TX power. Model number is GNN6N7AWAN. I am having problems picking up a local TRS and I didn't know if my on star was TXing, desensing my scanner or not. I didn't have the on star activated.

Its an integrated GPS receiver and fancy cellular telephone. So basicly the answer
is its probably only worth something to someone who needs a replacement.
And, depending on the year of your Impala, it might be an analog phone system, which is no longer any good to anyone!

Thanks for the replies.

Do you know if the on-star TXs even if you are not paying for the service?
I don't think there was any "continuous" TX with OnStar. But, even if yoiu weren't a subscriber and crashed (unless you killed the car's battery) the RED emergency button still worked...

I'll bet a call to on-star would give you your answers.
