    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I enjoy using my HomePatrol and appreciate the recent upgrades. In particular, the ID search function for trunked systems on the favorites groups is an excellent improvement.

I travel many times per month, and thus use the full database with a GPS unit. Many of these systems add or change talkgroups frequently. Thus these talkgroups are not scanned when using the full database. In future upgrades, will it be possible to set the HP for ID search for selected trunked systems in the full database? Or, as an option, possibly include a global setting in the menu to ID search all trunked systems in the full database?

Currently, as a workaround, I have created a favorites list which includes about 30 trunked systems. In this favorites list, I set each of the trunked systems to ID search. I then set avoids on the same systems in the full database, then set the HP to use both the full database and this special favorites list.

Thanks for a great product!
