This is my USB Hi-Pro. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Hi-Pro is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My Hi-Pro, without me, is useless. Without my Hi-Pro, I am useless.
Cable to connect USB HI-Pro to your PC
Phonak hearing aids use special cables (CS44a, not the standard CS44 cables) because Phonak has pins 3&4 switched for some obscure reason. I used the standard CS44 cable with this special >> DIY converter <<.
Standard CS44 Programming Cable (shown below, same as Oticon Programming Cable #3)

Using DIY Phonak cable converters connected between the Hi-Pro and standard CS44 cables.
If you have Phonak CS44a cables (instead of standard CS44 cables) then don't use the DIY converters.
Ready to connect cables to Phonak Audeo Q.
The programming cable just plugs directly into the Phonak Audeo Q.
All Connected: PC to Hi-Pro, to DIY-converter, to Cables, to Audeo Q.
Ready to program with Phonak Target software.
Note that you could also program the next generation AudeoV using this same setup.
Except that you would need to use Phonak Target updates to update from Target 3.3 to Target 4.0
Do this by running Target 3.3 and then use Phonak Target updates to update from Target 3.3 to Target 4.0
