• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Anyone know what this does? Not a hint of documentation on the GRE page. I'd hate to overwrite my V-Scanner entries if it doesn't improve the nearly non-existent usefulness of the MA V-folder.

You seem to be right Don.
I did a comparison by file content and the only files that are not identical are 08 & 17.

I haven't looked too hard but I didn't see an easy way to upload it to the scanner either. Although I don't see why many people would use this, all it does is fix a few names and maybe a few frequencies in the pre-programmed V-Scanner database.

You can use the "demo app" included on the CD to the radio to upload the BIN files one at a time, using the scanner's keypad to store to V-Folders after you upload each one.

Or, you can use one of the available third-party programs to upload all of them in one shot.

Hate to sound like a dumb a__, but how do you download this to the scanner?
Thankss.
Run the 500 600 demo utility found on the CD.
Set the comport used by the cable and plug it into the scanner.
Click Start .
Click Send to PC/IF and navigate to the desired folder.
