• 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 picked up a used XPR 6580 and went to program it with CPS but when I tried to read the radio, I get error code #1057 Wrong Region. I've tried numerous versions of CPS and even EMEA editions and nothing will read it.

The model number is AAH55UCH9LB1AN, the firmware version is R01.05.00 and the CP version according to the radio is 02.00.04

Can anyone give some assistance with this?

I've tried CPS old as 6.5 all the way up to 16 and i still get the error. Tried a few EMEA versions too and nothing worked.
I'd update the firmware but I do not have access to that. Even i did, I couldn't update it due to the CPS not working.

Something is clearly amiss. The AAH55UCH9LB1AN is indeed a US model radio so you must not have the right region of CPS. Where are you getting your multiple regions of CPS from?

I was able to get it to read finally, next hurdel is the firmware and then the conversion package from trunking to a conventional radio.
