And that alone was worth it for me. I have used that feature many times.The Extreme upgrade is really not worth it in my opinion. I purchased it 2 years ago and never use those features. Unless you are a hard core scanner enthusiast that likes to do a lot of analysis of what you are receiving, then it's really not worth it. The only Extreme feature I have found worthwhile is the ability to add and edit Favorites lists directly on the scanner without needing to connect to the software.
