Just a quick FYI for anyone using the Community CPS.
I recently tried to load a codeplug into a brand new GD-77, only to find that the CPS would not upload to the radio.
On closer inspection, I found that it was running firmware 2.x (I can’t remember the precise version, it was probably 2.6.something).
So the first thing I had to do was update to the latest firmware (3.1.6).
I find it very odd that somehow people are receiving what are supposed to be brand new GD-77 which must have been manufactured some time last year, yet other people receive radios with more versions of software which are totally up to date.
I can’t think of a logical reason why this could have happened.
So, next time you can’t use a brand new GD-77 check its firmware, it could be 12 months out of date !
