• 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.

Did you mean BCD325P2? No such thin as a BCD352P2. Anyway I usually just put my portable in one of the cup holders in the center console. I'm sure someone else will chime in with a better solution if you desire a more secure or permanent installation. BTW, nice to see a car with a manual transmission. #1 theft deterrent these days. No one can drive a stick anymore.

I second a cup holder mount. With anything like that (handheld, etc.) it is best to keep it down low and not up at face level. In the event of an accident, anything not bolted down can and likely will become a flying object that can inflict injury to the driver or passengers that otherwise wouldn't have happened.

You can always use an external antenna for better reception, if needed, but mounting it up on the dash or at head level is not advised.

There may be someone who comes along and says that theirs is up on the dash and does fine but, again, that isn't advised as it is a danger in an accident. Mount it low and as securely as possible.

Lidomounts has some cup holder style mounts that might work.
