Baofeng DM-5R Programming software download

I noticed that it was very difficult to find a working link to download this software since everybody else was linking to the file hosted on radioddity.com which they had removed. I found a working download link eventually but thought I would post a new link online so others can find it easily. If you want to provide a file for download, please host it yourself or put it on some file host instead of just linking to someone else's download!
Anyway here it is:
Download
The link contains the software for the Baofeng DM-5R DMR radio for Windows and Mac OS.


Assuming you are here from a search engine, you might find my other posts interesting. I have a video on the DM-5R:

    1. Help please. I have a UV-5R with programming cable and it works fine. I just bought a DM-5R brand new and am not able to read or write to the radio with the same cable. The software times out each time and none of the leads on the cable (red or green) light with the DM-5R radio. I can program my UV-5R with CHIRP and the same cable fine. I am running Windows 10. Thank you and 73.

    2. Most likely a Driver Issue - it has been recommended to use the Vista Driver via the many searches and youtubes videos.

  7. Hi.
    The programming software works very well. Instead, I have a strange problem, with both my two DM 5R Plus.
    I'm unable to have the squelch completely opened. I'd like to do it, when I'm waiting for the satellite passages, and then you need the receiver not silenced. I programmed all the channel and the features, I upload all into the radios and then, the radios are always mute. I tried manually to set to the value of 0 the squelch, but the result is the same.It happens even in the "frequency mode", both on A or B sections. It's impossible to have the squelch neutralized. The only way I have, is to press continuisly the little button below the PTT.
    Has anyone any idea about this problem?
    You can answer here or to my email: i0kqb@hotmail.com
    Thank you

  8. ..Oooopppsss...Sorry...I forgot to say that the two radios work very well. I tried to communicate using them. The only problem,I repeat, is the one that I mentioned over it.

    1. Hi Frank. I am having the same problem. My cable works fine with programming my UV-5R but not my DM-5R. What version of windows are you using? I am using Windows 10.

  11. You might want to check your serial port number for your usb under Device and Comm port. I had to change the number
    by hand to get my connection to work. The drop down box will not let you select the correct port. When I changed my port number in the drop box it works fine.
    Hope this helps.
    Steve.

  12. Same thing happen to me.
    Here is the fix I found.
    Under Device and then Comm port... when the drop box opens it will not let you select the comm ports that your USB is connect to.
    You must change the number in the drop down window to match your port number the USB cable is connect to.
    You can edit the number in the drop box. At first I did not think I could and about drove me crazy till I found out I could edit the port number.
    After that the software worked fine.
    Hope this helps someone.
    Steve
