Great to have for most occasions

Bought for my wife. Now I use it all the time. We fight over it. If it was a bit less expensive I would buy another

The app makes it easier to program

Love my new scanner, especially the customizable channel naming for each frequency.. its loaded with tons of features, and im still discovering new things that it can do.. it is loud enough for indoor use, but if using in a vehicle, suggest that you have an AUX port to plug into your car audio.. im using rechargeable batteries that usually last about 7 hours, could last a lot longer, but i have it programmed to light up brightly when it receives a signal..

I haven't had time to totally check it out, but I like what I've read.

Just Buy One

I think the scanner is overall a great choice. I did not find it hard to program after watching some YouTube videos...just seems intimidating at first.

I love that it scans DMR P25 Etc. but i can never pickup great signal and plus my county just went E so i can’t listen anymore.

Twice sent wrong one

Twice they sent the analog one when I ordered the digital. Twice my husband drove an hour to return the first two. The third one was the right one. I haven't programed it yet. SOMEONE NEEDS TO TELL THE VENDOR
