Correct. If you have the main database set to be used, it will take 30 seconds or so. If you have only small Favorites Lists set to be used, closer to 10 seconds.

The person Marshall was replying to was talking about data transfer over USB, and I think Joe (and you, Paul) are referring to startup time. IIRC, you said data transfer of the entire database is "under 2 minutes tops", correct?

You're right Jay. Above is the post I meant to quote.
(I picked the wrong "2 minutes" post)

Yep. There were some crossed wires there

Hopefully this proves once and for all that UPMan and I are not the same
person.

True, but what does that say for Paul and me?

I think everyone knew what I meant (including Jay), but Jay was right to point out that I referenced the wrong post. Ironic that in an attempt to clear confusion I caused some. Oh well, the best laid plans...

Besides, it's good to cross the wires now and then - it keeps the 'spark' alive. (ducking the tomatoes now)

Paul (UPMAN),

Can you advise if this unit will be sold in Radio Shack stores?

Thanks,
Dave

Didn't the announcement of Whistler acquiring GRE imply that they were going to make RS's scanners for the future? As in, exclusively (without actually coming out and saying such)?

I suspect the cost of doing this may be less today but how many people will need it and then buy it is the unknown. Also certain price points are needed to sell radios in sufficient numbers to be profitable. Of course, if I needed it I bet my opinion may be changed a bit.
That's one feature I like a lot on my Baofeng HT. It lets me keep my eyes on the road where they belong.

Curious,But DMR and NXDN,,would that be a hardware add on?

Those are protocols that would require decoding with software. Whether the new scanners have hardware that is capable of decoding them is not known.

I was looking at the power up on the 436hp and see the SD Card is underneath the batteries. Too bad it wasn't like on the side of the radio (like the psr800) not having to remove the batteries.

Understand people wanting to compare to prior competition, but by having to remove the batteries first you reduce the chance of sdcard corruption or damage.

That combined with the speed that Sentinel can now write to the SD card makes removing it highly unnecessary.

The reason I like to remove the card if needed my card reader is faster than the usb hook up. Also when I hook up the scanner to the computer I was not able to do a unsafe remove. It says it's safe to remove I wait to see if the icon/drive go away sits there still can open it and I have to shut down the computer every time that stinks. That is using the psr800

If you power off the scanner the computer will no longer have a connection to the SD card. That will eliminate needing to shut down your computer.

Not much I can say about the card reader other than to see how quickly the data is written to the scanner now. Compared to the psr800, it happens at hyper speed.

I'm not trying to argue with you as you are entitled to do it how you want, but I can't see how taking the time to remove it and then put it in a reader is quicker than plugging the cable into the side of the radio. And the speed should be very very close to the same.

Also, not sure what version of Windows you're using but if you right click and 'eject' to safely remove the hardware and it says it's safe to unplug it, it's safe to unplug it. The icon may stay there until unplugged but no reason to shut down...

Just trying to help...I think you are taking some time to do some unnecessary stuff.

First I shut down the scanner when the scanner is powered down til I see the clock. Second I go to the Drive of the card and I right hand click and go to remove and the screen on the bottom shows it is safe to remove. And it won't go away. I use Win7. I have to shut down the computer to unplug the usb cord.
