I have just purchased and downloaded the ARC PATROL Beta Version Software ($20.00) and connected my HP1 with no problems. This is my 5th software package from Butel and if you read what and what not this package will do for you I think it is worth the money. Just my opinion. I also use Pro Scan and Free Scan for my other radios and have likes and dislikes on any of them.:)
Any comment on the missing location based scanning features?
I am also curious abut the Favorites management? One huge hole (IMNSHO) is that once you put something in a Favorites list, it is static. I can understand why this was done. However, it is still a pain.
Would it be possible to implement some sort of notification/indication in the software to tell us that a particular system/channel in the Favorites list has been changed/updated in the master database?
p.s. Uniden, if you would like to implement this feature in HomePatrol Sentinel, I wouldn't complain either. :) It is very inconvenient to have to periodically reconstruct lists to ensure your Favorites have the latest data...
