4 of 5 ID-5100 programming software March 23, 2020
Reviewer: Ken Schumacher from Wheaton, IL United States  
I like how easy it was to load memories and set the Memory Bands. It is so easy to see when using the programming software.

It took me a while to set all the different menu options the radio. This was much easier to see using the software. I like that so many of the settings and options are on a few screens in the software as opposed to just a few settings and their options on many different small menu screens.

I wish columns were handled differently. Each time I start the software, all the columns are displayed and return to their default sizes. I want a way to preserve my changes in column width, and which columns I choose to display.

The software is very useful. It works wonderfully with the radio. I just wish the columns were easier to manage.

I do highly recommend the RT Systems products.

5 of 5 Bought it again March 19, 2020
Reviewer: Thomas Talley from Millican, TX United States  
Got the download version and the ts 05 cable.  Download went well, but when it opened, it found the previous version on the laptop and fired right up without asking me for the new serial number.  Works for me...
Saved a copy of the 5100 data to a new tab and fixed a couple of things in the RTS image then downloaded it back into the rig.  Rig fired up fine, with changes.  Able to connect a tablet to the 5100 using Bluetooth and send text message on dstar.  So everything worked fine...
EXCEPT ... I still have not been able to upload the new firmware v7 from ICom through the cable to the radio.  I am unable to put the radio into firmware upload state using the quick+power on buttons.  Probably nothing to do with the cable and RTS software, but I thought it was interesting that when I mentioned this problem on the forum, the first replays said call RTS, their tech support is great

3 of 5 Trouble Installing Mac Drivers for Cable January 21, 2020
Reviewer: Stephen Coney from SAN FRANCISCO, CA United States  
Thanks for the product, exactly what I wanted and shipped quickly. All good here. However, it took me many hours to get the cable to work because of issues installing the drivers on Mac. Unless you install it a very specific way, you get an error saying USB cable not found. It is related to the security settings and is not mentioned in the installation instructions. Nor are there any Knowledge Base articles to fix this particular error. I only worked it out because I watched a youtube video made by RT Systems, and the person mentioned it in the video, so clearly it is a know issue. If you had a Knowledge Base article on what to do, it would have saved my several hours and potentially a support call. Please contact me if you want more details, as I really think others can benefit from this.
