I'm not sure what you mean by "give a chance to use csv for import".

I assume you're looking for more explanation as to why it won't 
open/import your CSV file in the UI, right?  I should definitely improve 
that reporting.

The recent betas have a bit better CSV import support, namely they let 
you leave out fields that you don't care about, and CHIRP uses the first 
row of column headers to determine which column is which.

In the sort term, feel free to send me your CSV file and I'll figure out 
what's wrong with it and try to make CHIRP report what is failing better.
