Hi all .

Loaded up my mil air favourites from my bct15x.
I have less than 2000 favourites in total.
I have database deselected . I have search with store deselected....

I get the disgraceful message attached in the photo.

Upman - please justify this ridiculous design **** up!

It uses a 4GB SD card for heavens sake! Flagship ? Sinking ship more like!

Correct. The SD card capacity has nothing to do with the Favorite list size limits. I wish the size limit was higher however

ll test this Cellphone, but I contend that if one favourites list is too large why not continue to
Load the favourites list that follow it which most definitely aren't?

Futhermore - the text file of the list data is about 8K on the desktop - how in gods name
Has 8K of text become expanded into a file of > 1MByte ???

I sincerely hope you're both right - but presently (not home right now) I suspect that the total
Favourites list (not just the one list) cannot excede 1MB - and if so - that's an EPIC fail in a radio
Of this price point.

The 1MB limit is not a total of all favorites lists.

You can have a total of 256 favorites lists programmed into your scanner, but the individual size limit for each list is 1 MB.

You can view the size of Favorite Lists in Sentinel. Under the Edit menu, select Edit Profile. In the Scan Selection tab, there is a column on the far right for File Size.

I have a favourite list for all unused frequencies in VHF & UHF military airbands.
It has over 6000 entries, grouped by MHz.
File size is 552 kB.
Maybe most/all of your channels have long names (most of mine are just the frequency).
