The factory made a mistake and set one of the band limits outside the capability of the radio which also put it outside of what CHIRP expects. This is what caused the Setting tab to not appear. I will be submitting a patch to workaround this issue.

In the mean time you can...
- download and temporarily use the original BTech UV-5X3 factory "image" file that is available here in the CHIRP repository
- email the CHIRP Radio Images (*.img) file from your radio to me and I will return it with the out-of-range setting fixed
- wait until my patch is submitted, approved and made available in a future CHIRP daily build
