The RDSMAX 4000+ windows program (Updated May 2015):

The RDSMAX 4000+ windows program (Updated July 2012):
http://www.pcs-electronics.com/software/Install_rdsmax4000plus_en.exe

Version 2013 - If you purchased RDSMAX in 2013 or earlier first install RDSMAX4000 program and than download this exe and run it. It includes some updates that are necessary for new version (baud speed and write command).

And here is the driver for USB IO board for XP, W2K and Vista

This lets you use the USB communications.

The manual is here, have fun!

One very usefull note: You may enter @TIME or @DATE into any PS field and the encoder
will send current date or time to the receiver in DD/MM/YY and HH:MM:SS format. Its a
pretty nifty feature, one of my favorites.

PS: LCD module is now supported, in my opinion it is really worth a few extra euros.
In actual use it turns out to be extremely helpful as it easily shows all main RDS
parameters and current PS/RT as they are being sent out.

Manual has been updated to include IO board with USB, LCD display and more protocol description. Have fun!

Don't forget, if you enter @TIME or @DATE into PS time the encoder automatically inserts date or time from
on-board clock in stand-alone mode. Really nifty, if you ask me

Post Manual update Reply with quote
RDS manual has been updated today,
the baud speed selection table had a problem.

Basically, the jumpers position was wrong for given speed.
Should work fine now, sorry about the mixup.

Post RDSMAX 4000+ windows program updated Reply with quote
The RDSMAX 4000+ windows program has been updated to fix Auto Update RT bug.
It should now update RT and PS according to settings without any bugs.

Please report if you still see the problem or have any other comments.
