Yup, the radio fits the case with big battery. Also fit the charger.. wahoo! Both batteries had full charge on arrival.
Bad new is (yes, I searched before making this post ):
I've been unable to get a good Connection from laptop - transceiver.
Have installed/uninstalled Drivers and Programming software a couple times.. always same result. And first thing I did is print the instructions from the CD, followed to the letter. Windows 7 - 64 bit. Yup installing the correct Driver and SW.
Com Port changes with every install. Started showing COM4 and COM6 available and in the Devices it shows as on COM6 so that's what I select in the Program. Last attempt was COM7.
When I select Read Radio it only moves the progress bar a couple lines, although a couple times it made it 1/4 of the way across the screen, I was all excited, (so it is trying and is seeing the driver in Devices) but always comes up with Failed Connection.
Guess I'll be on the phone with the vendor in the morning and hope they can point out something simple/stupid I'm doing or not. Ah, like, there are 3 USB ports on my laptop, same result from all. Could it be as simple as the wrong USB? Black on black print, can't read the dang thing.
Maybe one of you brainiacs can point to something obvious to all except me. Definitely don't spend any time on me; like I said, I'll call BTWR in the morning.. nice that they're EST and I'm PST - I can get after it early.
From what I can see there is not a way to input Duplex frequencies from the display. Written instructions could be better, not much detail.. But that's a secondary issue; if I get the software working I'll do that all from there.
The 805 did talk to my old Midland X-511 in the house so there's hope.
Thanks for listening to the rant.
