Bug fixes for CPS V4.00.32

Inadvertent problems were created in CPS 4.00.30 with regard to the Contact list and sorting features. These affected TX Contacts, RX Group Lists, and One Touch Call lists, particularly when the Contact list was sorted by name instead of ID number. This problem has been chased down and corrected in 4.00.32. Please update your CPS as soon as possible to avoid the contacts problems in your code plugs.

Firmware Version 3.00.06

April 19, 2016

This version correctly supports up to 65,280 contacts loaded to the radio, which can be accessed via Contacts > Manual Dial menu. We are still working with the manufacturer to address the remainder of the contacts and provide full support for 65535 contacts.

MDC1200 Decoding has been improved and should operate better on the radio.

Some modifications have been made to the Advanced Features set for front panel programming although testing indicates there is still much work to be done. We are still working with the manufacturer to to resolve these issues and get front panel programming operate properly.

Prolific Drivers and Documentation

The front panel programming cable uses a Prolific Integrated Circuit. This chip requires you to have a driver in your PC to use that cable. This cable uses a chip that is probably not compatible with the Windows 8 or Windows 10 operating system. The documentation within the ZIP files explains how to determine what version of the Prolific Chip you have and what Microsoft Operating system it is compatible with.
