I just have bought a pro-106 and had heard you can use the win96 files in win500 wondering if anyone has done this if it works well?
Works well for me. Start with a new file and use the Import... item on the file menu in Win500. You'll have lots of options as the .p96 file from Win96 is imported into Win500.

Win500 contains a feature to let you import '96 files for use with your '106.

Since the scanners aren't organized the same way it is not an exact equivalent.
But it will save a lot of typing to get favorite files from the '96 into the newer radio.

That was how I got my 106 programmed for the first time last year. Pulled my hair out (what was left) :)) until I saw how the Win500 software worked. That import function is great. Thanks DonS.

I also used the import feature in Win500 to import my Pro-96 files to Win500, just go through and make sure everything got to the right place, you will have to seperate everything into scanlists if you want to, LED colors ECT. And yes Don Starr has saved alot of hair, he's better than Rogaine LOL!!!!
