I've now had my set updated to allow its use with a modified microphone which is producing the Alpha/Numerical channel display. Looks wonderful and should be much easier to use in the car. Rather than counting beeps, looking at the numbers and or looking up the Zone/Channel number from a chart.
The modification requires the firmware in the microphone and radio to be updated. So while that was away I decided to write a new and updated code plug, taking into account the various changes that have taken place on the variety of systems and groupings. I started with the code plug that was previously in the unit and gave it a full one over. While doing this, I decided to upgrade my CPS from around Version 6. to Version 8.00.09.007 EM5. All seems good the code plug was read by the new CPS and everything went along smoothly.
So now with the upgraded radio in my grubby little mits, I then proceeded to firstly read the existing code as a backup up and then to re-programme the set with the new code. This is where the plan fell to pieces. I assume that the new version of the CPS is happy to work with the radio as it read the existing file, but trying to programme the set with the updated code causes the message 'cpsdataver error' so the re-programming fails.
So can someone direct me in how this should be done such that I can my set aligned and ready for my Christmas journeys?
I also have an outstanding query elsewhere on this forum in regards to taking the code plug and putting it into a MD 785.
Some guidance would be much appreciated.
