When I travel, I also limit the services I want to listen to, like police, fire and ems, and uncheck transportation, business, aircraft, etc. I forgot to do this on my last trip and had to keep locking out taxis and towtrucks until I stopped and unchecked businesses. Very risky having to avoid multiple channels at 60 mph!
On one trip, I found myself traveling up the I-95 NE corridor so I left railroads active, (the highway parallels the tracks a good bit) and got some interesting chatter there, when PDs were not real active.
My problem with the GPS is getting it to recognize when I first plug it in. Sometimes it takes two or three tries.
I think you will enjoy the HP-1 more as you get to learn the many extra functions it has. I love mine!
