Selective reception

Had it professionally programed, but was told by the programmer that this model has trouble deciding which transmitting tower to pick up. Very intermittent reception. After 2 years I'm going to a different brand.

Setup hard but then great!

Set up was a little confusing even after purchasing the third party software but once set up its great. They could have used a few more instructions on how to use the software with the scanner.. ie in the software you might have to program/ identify the computer port you are connected to. But after a few hours and lots of googling we figured it out.

Works like it should so we would recommend it to other people.

Ship with one coudnty programmed in

The unit would be better if it came with a basic program, say for one county. Having to but two more sets of software is good for advanced scanning but it should not be necessary to listen to basics.

Too complex for amateur

THought it would be a good fit, but it was too complex to program. Found another manufacturer that provided preprogramming for a small fee.
