For all you who, like me, are looking for the answer how to update the firmware.  It is hidden on the last page of the manual:

  1. Turn the radio off.
  2. Plug the cable firmly in your device and PC.
  3. Press and hold side buttons 1 and 2 (the CALL and PTT buttons) and switch phone on.  Screen will come on with no display.
  4. Start the UPDATE.EXE, choose and load the .sgl file and click DOWNLOAD.

That is it…
