Hello,

a. I would like to play around with the full, big, Database.

I read that you need to insert your Location, before it become usable.

Makes sense, as I'm not all that interested in seeing what might
be happening in Boise Idaho at the moment.

All my FL's created in Sentinel have Location Control set to OFF.

If i now put in my Zip Code, e.g., will there be any impact or changes to
my normal scanning of the FL's I created ?

e.g., will any of them use my Zip Code now as a radius limit ?
Or does my having them each initially set up with a Location Control OFF, take care of that potential problem ?

b. Is entering my Zip the simplest way of being able to use the main Database ?

Anything else to do ?

Thanks,
Bob

Page 22 and 23 in the owner's manual gives you a really good idea of how the range settings work, and how different range values are selected for the type of range setting that is used (zip code, GPS, auto-locate, etc.)
