As for a charger, I am quite happy with my Maha charger. It can condition and analyze the batteries and can be uses with an option lighter adapter for the car. This may not be the fastest charge, but it does charge and analyze the batteries in a very different way than a standard charger. Not cheap, but worth it in my opinion.my wife and i both have the 396 and love it.
the big problem is the battery life. i work in an office so i bought a AC charger to use whhile at work.
my wife travels and her runs down during a trip.
we are useing 2300 mAh batteries now. i have seen some 2500 but sure that is really going to make a difference.
have shopped for mobile charger but reviews from the users were not kind.
Have you been using the GPS module to scan based on location from the GPS?I got one for the house when they first came out. I had long range plans for a second for my vehicle. However I was so impressed with the performance of the first, I moved up my plans. I had a 996XT in my vehicle. I listen to a simulcast system, and the 536 has the 996 beat by a long way.
The only downside, and I'm certain this is just a temporary problem, is that I had a remote head for the 996XT. I'm planning to use the Siren App for remote purposes. The scanner is in a console and is kind of awkward to access.
I do and it works wonderful. I wish it would "chirp" when turning on/off something but that's alright. I have found that I need to tweak the GPS settings of the towers for my area though.Have you been using the GPS module to scan based on location from the GPS?.
Yes and like SFD119 I'm happy with the GPS performance. Presently I'm using the Uniden BC-GPSK device.Have you been using the GPS module to scan based on location from the GPS?
I primarily bought my 536 for mobile use, using the GPS for location scanning and using the WiFi for remote head operations. I can only mount the 536 in a console or under the rear seat.
Since the WiFi feature is not yet functional I haven't tried mobile use yet and I am now a bit reluctant to buy the GPS module considering the fiasco with the WiFi module. Does the GPS part at least work or this another fraudulent claim by Uniden.
