The fit and finish of the CS580 is very good; it feels comfortable in your hand. The battery firmly slides into the radio and the belt clip attaches directly to unit as opposed to the battery. However, it can be tricky to remove battery as you need to pull the spring loaded latch on battery and slide it off unit at the same time. There is really no place on the smooth back of the battery to apply the pressure to slide. Wearing a rubber glove may help. I wedged my thumbnail between the battery and seam at the top of radio to do this. Make sure the radio is face down over a table so it does fall out of your hands and hit the ground. The contrast / color of the display is clear and the font is pleasant. You cannot adjust the time-out of display and it is difficult to read in direct sunlight. The radio has a crisp / clear sound and adequate volume. The two knobs on top are easy to grip and channel knob has a firm detent on its 16 channels. The keypad and side buttons have a firm feel. RF sensitivity on DMR and analog is comparable to other radios in this price range. The transmitted audio is very good to excellent. Reception reports indicate it is louder than the MD-380.
It's claimed you can can use this right out of the box without programming. If you wish to do this you may be waiting for a while; perhaps hours. The radio has to scan (and it scans slowly) until it encounters a DMR signal. The radio will have to be on the exact frequency of the repeater at the same time repeater transmits. If the radio scans past the frequency because the repeater is not transmitting, the radio will continue to to scan in a loop until it hits an active channel. If you live in an area with several repeaters this may not take long, but if there is only one repeater it could take a while. You can pick from three scanning ranges to narrow the search range to speed up the process. Despite this feature scanning is painfully slow.
Finally, once / if the radio encounters the signal and comes to life, you have about 5 seconds to press the left (minus) - key to lock the radio on to the signal. If you fail to do this, radio goes back to scanning. If you successfully lock the signal there is no way to store or program it. When the radio is turned off or channel knob moved you lose the station. This severely limits the utility of this feature.
There is no third-party firmware like there is for the MD-380. That means no ability to see callers name or scan talkgroups on the same time-slot.
The radio includes a CD with programming software. Make sure you get the programming cable as it has a unique connection. Making a code-plus is relatively straight-forward if you have done this with any other DMR radio. Programming without the cable and software would be tedious if not impossible.
To summarize: the CS580 radio sounds good, has decent fit and finish and fits your hand comfortably. The auto channel scan is not very practical. Given the proper software / firmware this radio could be excellent but in its current form adequate. Given the CS580 costs about $40 more than a MD-380 you will have to decide if the features of the CS580 out weigh the lost functionality offered by a MD-380. If these radios had equal features I would recommend the CS580. But at this time they don't.
I will keep the CS580. If I were to buy a second rig again, I would have purchased another MD-380. Perhaps in a few months there will be additional features that will compare with the MD-380.
I hope this helps you make a decision.
The software is a little bit cumbersome. You basically have to enter the contacts in three different places which seems unnecessary based on other software I have used with other radios. You might be better off to see if someone has a code plug you can use. Ultimately, you probably won't need to get into the software all that much beyond the initial setup for anything more than tweaks. I'm sure the software will continue to evolve.
Review Updated April 13, 2018.
The CS580 is in some ways a cross between the CS750 and the MD380.
Like an FM repeater, a DMR repeater has a transmit frequency and a receive frequency, usually with the same 5MHz offset as an FM repeater. However, beyond that, instead of a CTCSS tone, a DMR repeater has two possible timeslots (1 or 2), a color code (0-15), a group number (1 to 9999999). Calls can be private, group, or open.
Channels are grouped into zones, usually with 16 channels in a zone, which correspond to the 16 positions on the channel knob. This makes for simple operation when using a limited number of channels, but makes it more complex when traveling from area to area.
DMR Tier 2 has two timeslots, so two users can use the same repeater at the same time. Many repeaters use TS1 for long distance networking (e.g. North America) and TS2 for local networking (e.g. in state). NOTE: Beware of many of the Chinese DMR Tier 1 radios that do not support two timeslots as they will not work on most repeaters and will cause interference on both timeslots. This is not to say that Tier 1 radios are not useful, but if you want to be able to use DMR repeaters, make sure you get a two timeslot Tier 2 radio. The CS580, MD380, and CS750 are all two timeslot Tier 2 radios.
Channels can be put into multiple zones so, for instance, 446.000 simplex can be included in your home zone, your work zone, and your shopping zone. A wide range repeater might be in your South City, North City, and West City zones. The CS580 requires that you create duplicate channels for each zone. That is, if you want to include a 446 simplex in three zones, you need to copy it three times with 3 different names. In the MD380 and CS750, the channel is created once and used multiple times, which is more convenient.
Contacts determine who you'll be talking to. That is, it can be an individual or a group of people, or everyone. Each user on DMR is issued a DMR ID number which, in the US, is issued by DMR MARC. The 7 digit number reflects your area and your ID. The area for Arizona is 3104. Each region (NW, SW, SE, etc.) is also issued an ID number so calls can be addressed by region.
Repeaters are linked using the internet, so different group codes can connect different groups of repeaters. For instance on the DMR MARC system, group code 1 is "Worldwide" so any repeater which chooses to be linked can be linked. Group code 3104 is "Arizona" so only Arizona repeaters will usually be connected. There are different group codes for World English, North America, SE USA, etc.
The CS580 is limited to only 250 contacts. Will this be a problem? Only if you want to download a list of IDs so when you hear someone on a repeater, their call and name will show up. It's possible to download only those contacts who are in your state or region to keep the number down.
The MD380/MD390 can have up to 1000 contacts. The CS750 can have up to 65,535 contacts (which can hold the current total worldwide list of DMR users). The CS580 can hold 250. Note that the MD380 can use modified firmware that will expand the number of contacts it can hold.
One unique feature of the CS580 is the enhanced scan mode which gives you the ability to scan a range of frequencies and display the Frequency, Group Number, User ID, Timeslot, and Color Code of a repeater it hears. This can be used to find unknown DMR repeaters. You can lock this information into the display and reply to the caller without doing anything else. You can also write down the information to program it into your radio. Be aware that the scan is very slow, so if you plan to scan a large portion of the 70cm band, it will take a long time. Also, the display turns off during the scan until an active channel is found. This means you can't monitor the progress of the scan.
Another CS580 feature is the enhanced monitor mode which will listen on a selected memory channel and display the frequency, group number, user ID, timeslot, and color code of any transmission it hears. You can use this to identify parameters on a repeater for which you know the frequency, but nothing else. This usually is faster than the scan mode as it's listening full time to one channel, not stepping slowly through multiple frequencies. This is similar to the Digital Monitor Mode of the CS750. The stock MD380/MD390 does not have an equivalent feature.
- It is IP54 rated, so rain and dirt shouldn't bother it.
- Enhanced scanning/monitor to identify repeater information. A big plus for travelers and DMR newbees.
- The antenna connector on the radio is an SMA male, which means that Baofeng-compatible antennas will also work on this radio.
- Smaller size for easier carry, especially if you have smaller hands.
- Only 250 Contacts. Limited ability to display user ID, Name and Call.
- Every channel needs to be copied and renamed every time it is used, unlike the CS750 and MD380.
- 64 Zones vs 250 for the MD380 and CS750.
- Scan lists limited to 16 channels vs 31 for the CS750 and MD380.
- Limited support in hardware/software/accessories. As a relatively new entry into the market, there is little software support for this radio. There are few accessories available as well. Connect systems sells the programming cable, "surveillance" mic, and battery only.
- The microphone interface standard is different from the CS750 and also the MD380, so you can't just use accessories that you currently have. This includes the programming cable.
- Currently, there is no way to save the scanned information directly to radio memory, so you'll have to program it in by hand later.
The MD380 has third party firmware support which adds features to the radio. Check out the VA3XPR website for more information.
Both the MD380 and CS750 can use the N0GSG contact manager to load and organize contacts and channels. This can save a large amount of time when customizing your radio. The CS580 is currently not supported.
The CS580 cannot read the CS750 codeplugs so, if you're adding a radio to your collection, you'll have to re-enter all your contacts and channels by hand. The CS580 CPS is also not well developed, so is more clumsy in operation. You can copy channel information from one to the other by right clicking the channel you want to copy, selecting copy, then selecting the zone you want to copy it to and selecting paste. For example, when creating five channels for one repeater (e.g. for World, World English, North America, Southwest, and local), you can copy all the data five times, only changing the contact and/or timeslot. Likewise, when using 446 simplex in multiple zones, you copy the channel to multiple zones, but will have to rename it each time. An upgrade to the CPS, especially including an import/export function can go a long way towards easing this process.
As a radio, the CS580 performs pretty well. It's smaller and less brick-like in shape than the MD380. It's also smaller than the CS750, so if you have smaller hands, or want to drop the radio into a pocket or purse, it's more convenient. The transmit and receive audio are good. The belt clip is a bit tight, but I guess that's good.
My main complaint about it is with the current support, accessories, software and firmware. As a relatively new product, support should follow soon, so my objections may not be relevant for long.
The bottom line is that if you are new to DMR, or if you travel a lot, the scanning feature alone makes this a good radio to buy. It's a relatively inexpensive way to get into DMR and has features that make using it easier than some other radios.
If you are already entrenched with another brand with incompatible accessories (e.g. batteries, battery eliminators, microphones, etc.) or if you need the higher contact capacity, then it may not be for you.
Do yourself a favor and join a local DMR group. The help in getting your radio set up and working will be worth it.
Once you get used to the noise-free environment of DMR, you may not want to go back to FM!
The photos are: Enhanced Scan Mode, a comparison between the CS580, CS751, and MD390, enhanced monitor mode, and the scan display. One nice feature is that the display stays on when receiving a signal. Not good for battery life, but good for knowing who you're talking to!
