    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:

Up to you. Do you want things in it to turn on/off based on your location? Then, enable location control. Do you want to always manually select items in the FL to scan? Then, disable location control.

I have location control set too NO, in my favorites list. But when I turn the HP 2 on, the first thing I see is ..."Use GPS or ignore GPS".

Which one should I chose?

Thanks

If you have location control turned off for all your FL, and you are not using the main database, I'd just not plug in the GPS. In that condition, it doesn't matter whether you select use or ignore.

If you have location control turned on for a FL and/or are using the main database and want to limit scanning based on your immediate location, plug in the GPS and select "use".

What happens if I just chose "ignore GPS", when using the favorites list, and location control is off?

I don't want too plug and or unplug the GPS often.

Thanks agin
