My local M shop has not been able to get what they need flash upgrade my radio to the latest ROS/DSP. I suspect that their dealership level doesn't include high tier radios, and hence the problem getting what they need to do the job. I was told to call some M uberwanker myself to inquire, but that never got me more than an "I'll check into it." Thanks!
That being said, would there be a high-tier dealer outside my area who could do the work, or would that also turn into another cluster? I thought that ROS refreshes were supposed to be no big deal and no big cost.
That's why I like dealing with Thales - as a registered user, I can go to their customer site and download updates and flash the radios with a standard programming cable. Ditto for chargers. Did I mention free programming software from the Thales site? I love Motorola equipment, but hate dealing with them as a business. Way to complicated and expensive for what you get.
Enough ranting... 17.x CPS and 15.x ROS/DSP. Should I upgrade the CPS as a matter of routine?

As long as you don't enable a feature in CPS that the firmware doesn't support, it should work fine. If you do enable an unsupported feature, it usually results in a BOOP instead of a BEEP on POST, or like a unsupported menu item it just won't show up on the display.
