The Baofeng UV-17 Pro GPS is a newly-released model which has generated quite a bit of interest / discussion on the Facebook Baofeng Owner's Club group. It appears to be a new direction for Baofeng designs, using a full-color screen with full bitmap display. The firmware is apparently flashable, although neither the firmware or the flash utility has surfaced yet.

A manual for a similar model (UV-17P) has been released on various international Baofeng sites and is available from the Facebook group. The CPS 1.2.4 software (which has a dropdown allowing you to select from any of a number of new models in this series) is available at Miklor. Hopefully this means that a number of models can be supported with relative ease after the first one is added to CHIRP.

I can provide two radios for development, and leave one with you long-term for testing of new CHIRP releases. Note that I'm just a radio owner, not a distributor, etc. Others have also said they are willing to loan radios for development, but I'm definitely committing to doing so if needed.

I have made some progress decoding the CPS .dat format for the UV-17 Pro GPS which I can also make available if desired.
