Ok the agency I work for dumps a program into all the 197's they put in our patrol cars. Ive had two seperate scanners reset back to factory settings and need to be reprogrammed. Does anyone think this could be some bug or computer virus in the programming theyre putting in these scanners? A friend of mine bought a 197 and ask me to program it for him. Id like to just bring it into the radio shop and have them dump their program into it so he could monitor our 800 p25 system. Anybody think that would be a bad idea? I hate to corrupt his scanner but it would just be easier to have that program dumped into his personal scanner. Thanks for the input.
