    This is the latest NZ/AU database dated 2018/05/24

    Works with all R3 firmware, however if upgrading R3 to firmware 1.37 it will overwrite with the USA database, so you need to upgrade to 1.37 first, then load the NZ AU DB file into the tool afterwards.
    This zip file includes the R3 1.37 firmware bin file, the NZ AU Database file and the Uniden R Series SW Download Tool V1.22

    This was ALOT of work on my behalf and I also need to acknowledge @Archie99 for helping with testing

    This file is password protected so you will need to private message me for the password. This is done to ensure only trusted members on here have the file and that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands and compromise future updates. Please understand and respect this and don't host this file elsewhere, we don't want to loose what is now a good thing.

    @DEMON5 @Archie99

    Guys, big props to you guys man! that has worked %100.

    First off, the data base loaded in seconds with the supplied executable....
    Then, i checked the menu, and for sure it had rolled back my database to the date it implied it would....
    Then i took it out for a spin, and the NZ database is restored!!!

    I even find myself eating a little humble pie, i had concluded that perhaps even you weren't sure of your findings because we hadn't heard much more about it . But i am blown away man. Good work, and thank you.

    I will honour you confidence as requested. Anyone wanting this NZ database file will need to see @DEMON5 for the password. i can not reveal it. :)

    Thanks again guys!!

    I'm new to all this. Is this getting the NZ/AU database onto a US programmed R3?

    Yes it sure is. It also allows current NZ R3 purchased units the ability to be upgraded to the latest firmware and have the NZ database restored.

    Thats pretty cool.

    Are you able to run us through the basics of how its done or what you need to do to make it work?

    I'm a Systems Engineer so this kind of stuff is of great interest to me :D

    You simply install the R3 DB flash software included in my file, run the software, load the included NZ/AU DB .bin file and copy over. The whole process is very simple and very quick!

    I have posted it in the NZ/Australia area originally but thought it may also benefit people having it in the Uniden area too

    I understand the flashing part, i was meaning what do you do and why do you need to modify it in order to get it onto the detector?

    I understand technical so feel free to go full tech :D

    I'd actually prefer not to reveal how I've done it and keep things to a minimum on here as you never know who or what is lurking about.
    The most important thing is that my fellow countrymen and our neighbours across the ditch are no longer in a stranglehold when it comes to the Uniden R3.
