They program 99.9% exactly the same. I took a backup SD card programmed for my 536 and put it in the 436 and it worked fine. Later, I made same 436 specific changes (backlight, keypress, etc.).Troy,
I realize this is hard to compare all of them based on what they're designed to do, what you're wanting to monitor, and the area you're in but from your testing which do you say is the better value? The 436 or the 536?
I don't see any way to migrate programming from x96 radios - at least not in Sentinel. Butel's product might let you but I haven't really looked at that. Sentinel works well for creating favorites lists from the Sentinel/RR database. It's a bit of a pain to tweak the settings for sites, departments and channels but you can do it.And how is the programming for both? I have the 996XT and the 396XT right now and I'm considering the 436. Any easy way to get everything I have in my 396XT over into the 436 or am I looking at a headache trying to go through everything to get it in there?
