That looks very similar to the Ahuago M2 for sale at 409shop - they have software for the M2 available here (scroll down to Ahuago).

The programming cable they sell for the M2 doesn't look like a normal USB lead, so you might need to buy the special cable, but it's gotta be worth a punt.

Looking at it again, the bright coloured versions appeal to my warped mind and it is small enough to have fun with in the high street - not that I would do that as a responsible radio ham but if you know the local 446 users ................ :wtf:
Did you get caught for VAT etc and is the antenna removable so you could use it with a mini mag mount and SMA plug.

Ah you beat me to it. I saw these a few days ago and thought they might be a bit of fun to try out.
Looks like a micro USB cable in the pictures for programming. Have you got one lying around that you could try? Or do you have a proper programming cable for it already?

Looked at the link for the program software and downloaded the zip file, then it came up with a message saying the software would not load from the unzipped file ( on Windows 8.1).

Can you confirm that this is programmed with a standard micro USB cable?

Original poster said he bought a cable from china - suspect like most Chinese radio programming leads there is a chip in the end of it.
