Anyone know what this does? Not a hint of documentation on the GRE page. I'd hate to overwrite my V-Scanner entries if it doesn't improve the nearly non-existent usefulness of the MA V-folder.

Looks like it's just an updated list of frequencies, not an actual update to the V-Scanner program, correct me if I'm wrong.

The update seems to be just filename fixup. (Swapping VS_08 and VS_17, which were previously misnamed.)

You seem to be right Don.
I did a comparison by file content and the only files that are not identical are 08 & 17.

I haven't looked too hard but I didn't see an easy way to upload it to the scanner either. Although I don't see why many people would use this, all it does is fix a few names and maybe a few frequencies in the pre-programmed V-Scanner database.

You can use the "demo app" included on the CD to the radio to upload the BIN files one at a time, using the scanner's keypad to store to V-Folders after you upload each one.

Or, you can use one of the available third-party programs to upload all of them in one shot.

Run the 500 600 demo utility found on the CD.
Set the comport used by the cable and plug it into the scanner.
Click Start .
Click Send to PC/IF and navigate to the desired folder.
