Especially since I use ProScan and it only supports Uniden scanners. Just looking for pros, cons and any feedback. Thanks
The major differences are between the 996T & 996XT are noted in the Wiki. On the 996XT's page
, features new for the XT are bold
. (However, one item, the EDACS ESK support, I believe was added to the 996T version via firmware update, so that's no longer a 'difference'. That was also the case the the 396T vs the 396XT.) There's also higher channel capacity (25,000 vs 6,00), and more talkgroups per system (500 vs 250).
