What is the best way to update the data in your favorite files, after a full main database update ??

I am using ARC Patrol to do keep my FAV files up to date. I merely use the browser window to drag/drop the updated database file into the FAV list, then write the list to the HP-1.
I redate my local FAV list to make certain I can remember "which is which" when selecting the correct FAV list to be loaded into the scanner.

How do I update my favorites using Sentinel? Do they auto update from the newly downloaded full database or do I have to "rebuild" them again from the newly downhloaded database?
(I realize you have to have the Sentinel profile set to download the favorites.. that does not appear to be my issue though)

That is what I have been doing, a bit labourious, but it does work. I delete the systems that I want to update, and then put them back, using the new data...
Thanks for all your help, There is no easy way, yet...

I tried your sugjestion for ARC Patrol, but I could not figure out how you do it. Your instructions make it sound easy, but I can't figure it out.....
