If your business has a large fleet of Motorola RDX two way radios or has to adjust the radio settings every time a new radio is added, you can save a considerable amount of time by using the RDX series programming software. This software makes it incredibly easy to adjust the settings of a radio. You can also save a profile, and when you add a new two way radio you simply need to open the saved profile and click a toolbar button to write the profile to the new radio. Much simpler than using the radio's menu, especially on models without a display (such as the RDU2020, RDV2020, RDU4100, and RDV5100)! Even if your radio has a display (RDU2080d, RDV2080d, RDU4160d), the programming software still makes the process quicker and saves time.
The software itself is free and the latest version can always be downloaded directly from Motorola's web site at http://www.motorolasolutions.com/rdx. You will, however, need a programming cable: the Motorola RKN4155. This cable connects to the port on the back of the radio charger, and then into a USB port on your PC. Unfortunately, this cable is proprietary, meaning a standard USB cable will not work.
