I believe this is a known issue and there is another thread on this. What's the solution? Kill your scanner when you start the car. Mine does not behave this way, but I am just using the cig plus cable.

Hopefully they will have a fix for this soon.

I would be interest to know if the same thing happens on a conventional channel such as NWS National weather service. I did some testing trying to duplicate your situation but was not able to cause the audio to fail. I am wondering if it only happens on trunked channels.

As mentioned in the primary thread for this topic, we will address this with a firmware update.

Orange is a dimmer wire. That is all.

K2.. you say your HP is in the lighter plug and it will turn on and off with the ignition? So you don't have to push the button on/off every time and it causes no issues, correct?

This is one of my main concerns with a mobile install. I had my 396 hooked up to the lighter plug and it does not require you to power on/off. Not sure how/why it does it but I'm assuming there must be a minute power draw that retains through plug/car system...?

Anyway, I hope this gets resolved because I do want that 536 but I don't need it for a base unit.

right

My cigarette lighter goes on and off with the car key.If yours doesnt you can always take the cigaette fuse out and take a wire and jump it to a fuse that does.
