    Default CPS 2.0

    Sounds like they're getting another step closer to ditching CPS and replacing with RM... looking forward to hearing how they solve the airgapped laptop problem

    Oh good, so still no way to enforce firmware subscriptions, guess they're kicking that can down the road.

    Looking forward to the versioning schema. CPS 2.0 version 3.5

    I donít have any interest in downgrading to 2.0. Iím using 16.0. I think thatís newer. It also has an advanced new feature which allows it to communicate with any radio and doesnít require any kind of maintenance agreement.

    Back in 1991 when TRBO CPS 2.0 was released, do you know if analogue was included as a feature yet?

    Really? Now, 2.0 is newer than 16? What kind of playskool dumbass versioning math is that? Hey, they did it for firmware, why not for CPS too?

    So I guess we are to believe all the versions we were using up to now were all of "1.0" or some such crap, like a sort of BETA?

    I see they have decided to go with the rampant ugliness that is "modern" software design a'la the latest versions of Windows (10) and Android ("Pie"). Feh. Another monumental UI stupidity - let's get rid of lines or anything that might give a user a clue that it's a functional button. Nope, keep poking at the pictures, and eventually you'll find the one that works. Geezus.

    CPS 2.0 is Motorolaís new type of CPS, not version number. From what I was told, CPS 2.0 will incorporate TRBO and APX radios into one software package.

    The only radios that would benefit from CPS 2.0 will be the APX6000 BN and APX8000/8500ís which contain the new ďFreonĒ processors because these Freon radios can be upgraded with an EID to TRBO.

    To be fair, they think 2.x equals 2.0x

    Also sounds like CPS 2.0 is the solution for airgapped laptops

    But it's also gimped on a lot of features that I can only assume will be available in RM

    Not in the USA in our lifetimes, unless Motorola is bought out. The APX line is not going to get Trbo unless they drop the prices a factor of 10.

    Default CPS 2.0

    I highly recommend people download and stay with TRBO CPS 16.0 build 828/FW R02.09.00.0001 (platform) and donít go past APX 19.0x.xx CPS/fw. Zero benefit in doing so.

    Both products are now quite mature and stable. There are no new features. Plus, you donít have to give your money to Motorola for a SLA which will only cripple your investments.

    The company is circling the drain in terms of innovation, common sense and being disconnected from customers.

    I appreciate the golden years, right up until about 2014, when things drastically took a turn for the worse.

    Thank you to the retired engineers, product development teams and software gurus for your decent and meaningful contributions over the years. They are appreciated by thousands of customers and nerds.

    RIP.

    Hey Moto you cannot put the Genie back in the bottle. Any attempt to do so will just piss the Genie off. This is a poorly thought out solution and it punishes the small dealers not the hobbiest. As Mars said The current releases are stable and the informed hobby community is going to stay with them.

    Looking at the marketing material it seems as if moto want to "try" to convince everyone that you need to upgrade NOW. As said above I too will be sticking with the CPS v16.0 I've gotten use to it and have no intention to start using some software that looks like it was made in visual basic for its layout by a bunch of 8 year olds. I think if Motorola keep going down a path like this now they may as well shut up shop and sell on imo.
