• 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.

To my knowledge Kenwood doesn't do updates, they sell each version as a whole, sorry. Is there something in that version that's not in the one you have?

False. The latest version of software can be downloaded from Kenwood Dealer Tools website. You can remove the old FPU, install the new, and activate it with your original license key. Any Kenwood dealer should be able to get a copy for you.

which in turn means he needs to contact his local kenwood dealer about geting the updated version.They may or may not provide u with it for free. Unless you got it from the dealer you contact you should be prepared to pay

To download the file from the dealer site and turn around and attach it to an e-mail may take 5 minutes tops. If a dealer charges for this I imagine they are pretty hungry.
