FTM-400 - No Get or Send data through Cable

Modified on Thu, May 25, 2023 at 4:57 PM

The FTM-400 will not pass data through the cable for programming if 

  • Com Port Setting Output is set to GPS Out and 
  • WP Format is set to NMEA 9 

This is what you will see in the programmer: 

On the radio, this option is found in the Menu at Data | Com Port Settings | Output

The best solution is to set Output to Off for programming.  You can easily turn it back on from the face of the radio once programming is complete. 

Seem this data is being output on the same lines as those used for programming.  Neither the electronics nor the radiocan handle the two things at one time... the processes just do not share well.
