Yesterday, Gommert said in the main ARC 536/436 software thread that he would be emailing the registration keys for the Pro version this weekend.I was one that pre ordered arc536 pro. I am currently using the beta version. I wonder if grommert will mail out the registration numbers soon....
I only see the link for the Basic version. There is no link for PRO. Is the Basic link for both?I was able to download the release version of ARC536PRO at the following site:
Uniden BCDx36 HomePatrol Downloads
Was able to enter my registration code which I'd received from Butel earlier in the week. (Note: after entering the codes, give it a little time to complete after pressing OK).
Appears to be working fine in VC mode. Have not tested anything else yet, will do that later.
I bought ARC536 Basic at the pre release price and have been working on duplicating my ARCXT file in preparation for receiving my 436. I finally ordered the 436 today after waiting a bit to see how the reviews were. A big part of that decision was the availability of something other than the tedious Sentinel software.
I think I have this set up to work when the 436 arrives later this week. After I go through the clock set up and firmware and DB updates I plan to load what I've built into the scanner.
Which brings me to my questions for those of you who have used ARC536 to program one of the scanners.
Once I load a FL into the scanner and open Quick Key overview, what will I see? A screen shot would help.
I have to FLs built. One is for my local area and one is for a trip to Indianapolis at the end of April. How can I load both into the scanner?
You need to send each one individually I believe.
How do I assign Start Up keys? Can I do that by system, department or FL? Or some combination?
Finally, how do I build a profile? I know it's not like with older versions like ARC XT, but I can't see how to do it.
I don't believe that is possible. Even the Pro version I am using is pisitioned as a favorites list editor and virtual control...but Sentinel is used to update database, firmware and to edit profiles I think.
I know that some software functionality is dependent on being attached to the scanner, but it not completely clear to me what those functions are.
