I'm sure most know how to do this but I have been spoiled by just plugging my 536 in to computer and hit the send to scanner but I will be hard mounting it in my car this weekend so when I update my scanner firmware/favorite lists and such how do you transfer to remove able card?

You should be able to put the card from the radio into an appropriate card reader on your computer and then do the same write methon from sentinel.

You're correct! You might have to acquire a microSD to SD card adaptor, but once you put it in the card reader, you click on the "Receive from scanner" button in Sentinel and it works just like it would as if the radio is connected.

Or you can take the laptop into the truck. :lol:
