Guess I'm a bit confused by this post. Win500 has nothing to do with frequency and city/county listings from RR. Other than a nice way to enter data and control your scanner programming, data must still be gotten from the database listings and they always aren't absolutely correct or there may be many updates to the listings. Badmouthing a package of software for something it hasn't any control over makes no sense at all.
My included 106 Vscan files were way off and the preliminary files in RR were also dated. But the new P25 listings were right on for my county and their cities. You still have to research a bit and try them out. Win 500 makes that a whole lot easier.
I love the package myself. Saves a ton of time and effort and let's you look at your whole scanner at one shot. I still have to ask the question of what this has to do with the 1.8 CPU and 1.4 DSP upgrade.
