If you look at the reviews, you will quickly see this is by far the best dual band DMR mobile radio available.
Will Not Become Obsolete This CS800D is currently having three products designed to work in conjunction with it. The first product will be a much larger remote display This larger display will have the following advantages: (1) Easier to read for us older folks who cannot quite see the tiny displays of other brand radios. (2) Have the ability to have much more information on the display to allow you to know the status of the radio and the communication channel you are in contact with.
This add on product is being designed in the United States and will be have open source code so you folks can make changes and enhancements that was never contemplated by the engineering staff at Connect Systems.
For competitive reasons we will not discuss the other two products at this time. All we can say is these products will add features to the radio that will put it in a class of its own.

If you want to speak to someone whose native and only language is English, you call Connect Systems during normal business hours. We also answer e-mails after hours and holidays. Here is what some of our customers say.
"Once emailed Connect Systems in the early morning hours east coast time. Knowing they were west coast and would not be open for hours I was surprised to get an email response from Jerry personally before they were even open." (From Facebook)
"I've always has good support from Connect Systems. Chris is amazing." (From Facebook)

The Extended receive is very helpful in monitoring Emergency Management Inter-op and Fire Mutual Aid channels (frequencies) operating in UHF T Band 470 - 512 MHz. As First Responder for my towns Emergency Management this is very helpful in coordinating with mutual aid agencies.
Love the form factor especially since it’s the only dual band DMR radio that offers remote capabilities. The software is easy to download and use. Absolutely love the microphone as it looks, and feels, like the Kenwood land mobile commercial microphones. What I don’t like is the lack of sensitivity(?) on VHF and UHF. I get a constant sizzle, in the background of the received signal, that sounds like bacon frying when I’m listening to an analog repeater. I’ve used the same antenna, in a mobile, on two different radios... the CS800D and my Alinco DR638. I’ve used both radios in the same location(s) during testing and the same result. The Alinco, by far, has better receive. I’ve been using an N connector adapter so that may introduce some noise into the radio as well as affect sensitivity on receive. Everyone tells me the transmit audio is good also. I’m waiting for the correct connector to arrive, hopefully the noise will go away after the install. For now, I’m back to using my Alinco and will offer a better review if the new connector reduces the sizzle noise.
I have used the radio a couple of times. And has performed as expected
