So what's the point of having different profiles in Sentinal if you edit a favorite list in one, it changes them in all the profiles?
Hello. That brings up a good topic. The situation I'm having with my faves lsit, is when I delete an item in one profile, it deletes from all the profiles. So, I'm having difficulty as well trying to figure this out. Thanks...
That is incorrect, you would still be working off the same favorite list if you are doing a profile for you and your dad in the same computer. All you can do is select which favorite lists to download to each scannerProfiles are a way for you to make changes to one scanner and not to another.
Lets say I have 2 scanners.One for me and one for my dad who lives in another area.
If he is to far away for my stuff i dont need to program his scanner with my info.
Profile 1 can be me and profile 2 can be him.
If i need to make a change to hi s scanner i load his profile and make the changes. Thus not affecting mine which is different from his.
Another example: I have two 536 scanners, one in the house and the other in the car. They scan the same things. One difference is due to a mounting issue, I set the car's scanner to where the display is upside down. Another difference is that the car has a GPS so I need to set the port for 4800 buad, but the house uses Virtual Control with a higher baud rate.
Thus I have to have two different profiles, one for the house the other for the car to deal with these two different scanner settings. I would hate to re-plow a field and create a duplicate Favorites List.
Another scenario is having a 436 scanner, also scanning the stuff the 536 does. So that's a third profile.
Profiles do much, much more than that. They allow you to customize a separate, unique setup for many scanners by controlling many different parameters that get downloaded to different scanners.All you can do is select which favorite lists to download to each scanner
From: BCDX36HP Sentinel Software ManualA Profile is a group of settings that includes your Favorites List settings (download/monitor status, quick key status), location information (zip code, any saved locations, location range, GPS options), Service Type selections, Search and Close Call settings, weather settings, Tone-Out settings, and all your basic radio settings (display options, replay options, etc.).
If you make a change to something in the scanner and then use Sentinel to Read the scanner, it will detect "something" has changed. You will then be given the option of overwriting what is stored on the computer or creating a new Favorites List with a new name.If I change something directly in the scanner I would like that to be read back to Sentinel in another profile to make my current edited systems intact and not over written. Maybe it's a patent issue.
All profiles will have same favorite list info in it, no matter when you saved itBest way to do it is start sentinel, and click file, save as, then create new profile and name it followed bu thw date. Ex. Main_june_02_2017_001, and then save that current one on your pc. Then create another new profile. Ex. Main_june_02_2017_002, read from the scanner, make your changes then save it. I have a seperate profile saved for every change i have made, and can reload or review them as needed
