Setup & Optimize Service (for the Uniden HomePatrol
and GRE PSR-700
- If the scanner was purchase from Scanner Master
($49.95 for customers that already have purchased the scanner elsewhere)
Note: This service delays the shipping one week.
When you order this option along with your Uniden HomePatrol and GRE PSR-700 the Setup & Optimize Service Covers:
Optimizing the internal database
Checking and updating the firmware
Setting-up your local town/city into a Scan List/Favorites List
With Scanner Master’s exclusive Set-up & Optimize Package we see to it that you’re pre-programmed scanner is fully updated and ready to use for your area, perfect for your own use and especially perfect for a gift. First we optimize the internal database by updating the frequency library, which changes daily. We will also check and install any firmware updates to before your pre-programmed scanner ships. (The firmware is the operating system for the radio which may have been updated or tweaked by the factory following its production in Asia.) Scanner Master will then build a Favorites List/Scan List for the customer (based on the ship to address of your order), or for the area in which the scanner will be used if the customer specifies a different city (for example if the radio is given as a gift).
— Bellow applies to the Uniden HomePatrol ONLY. —
(The benefit of this Favorites List work is that we insure that the most important data to the user is readily accessible as often times, if the database for the end user’s area hasn’t been completely prepared with what’s known as “geo-tagging” then some or all of the local agencies will not activate for scanning. Scanner Master insures that this will not be the case.)
Scanner Master will also pre-tune the radio by entering the end-users zip code. Finally we will give the radio’s installed re-chargeable batteries a brief charge to insure that the radio will be ready to use right out of the box.
