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.
Have you ever tried to get support for some of the other radios. If you know Mandarin Chinese and you have free international calling you will have no problems. 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)

Great radio - easy install - now if I only could get the hang of the code plug!
Like what I see so far , great deal at $199
Shipping was super fast and as soon as I loaded a code plug it worked. A friend sent me a code plug and it was easy to load using the software from the web site. Radio works great on UHF and VHF and DMR digital and analog - wonderful.
Excellent radio. Even using it to work fm satellites in the car mobile
Fast shipping, radio is quality all the way. Buying one more.
This is the second CS800D that I've purchased recently. I had previously purchased another brand of dual band mobile DMR radio which was not working properly. The CS800D does what it's supposed to do and is simpler to program. I'm very satisfied with it.
Well built, robust unit and mic. Excellent value - FM+DMR, VHF+UHF. Good programming software. Manual really needs help, but email customer support is great. Control Panel separation possible. Many features/settings changeable from the mic.
Very nice professional grade mobile. Good programming software and ease of use. For the price and features it is hard to beat. I bought two of them.
Bought 2 of these with the CS-BFD. I am so happy with this combo that several local Hams have purchased.
This is my second CS800D and not because I love the radio. I bought because if it works it will prove the first one to be bad and if not I have an issue with my installation or my codeplug. Suffice it to say I have not used the one installed in a year or better and have not even tried it. It was so bad all reports were asking me what hotspot I was on and I do not own a hotspot but was on the repeater. Every repeater for that matter gave the same issue. Audio was clear for 5-10 seconds then garbled. I have far too many things in life to do than just fret over the issue and I moved on. So to be fair this radio I just bought is still in the box and if it turns out to be me then I will up the stars. If not it stays where it is. I will say customer support was great and they worked with me as with others as we pulled our hair out. I truly hope this helps me figure out the issue with my installation oddly enough I hope it is my issue not the radios. Yes I have performed all the normal steps of power grounding good antenna etc..
This is a great radio. It really didn’t take long to get used to and the menu is very easy and simple to navigate. Honestly though, the very best part is the support. I’ve asked CSI several questions and I get the answer back within the day. Try that with a Chinese radio!
The only down side is very little instructions on programing the radio. I went to Youtube to get help.
