• 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 was wondering if I do put my scanner in the dash, do i have to put in a external speaker, or could i still hear it through the dash with the volume turned up?

Probably will not work unless your car is so old the dash is open to the floor area; there are lots of small speakers you can get that work very well.

My 996T is in the dash of my 2006 Nissan XTerra with an extension speaker that is under the driver's seat. Works great, wouldn't want to have to turn up the sound to get through the dash.

You could probably hook it up through your radio speakers if you didn't want to add one. A small one under the dash near the steering column would be good too.

Some vehicles have a slotted section of dash where the the key/door alarm speaker is. You could replace that with one hooked up to your scanner and move the original one somewhere else (most people are tired of that buzzer any ways).
