You Speak, We Listen

As we released the v2.00 firmware, we also cranked up the volume on our own "Community Scanner," listening intently to what you had to say about it...the good and the bad. Based on that early input, we've put together an update that addresses a few big requests (and exterminates a couple of bugs along the way).

Next time you start Sentinel and attempt to update the database, you will be prompted to download and install a new version. After you do that, run Sentinel and click Update --> Update Firmware... to install the new firmware on your HomePatrol-1.

Here's the scoop on what is changed in this update:

Feature Tweaks

  • Move the UID Alpha Tag to be below the Channel Alpha (instead of replacing the channel alpha).
  • Add 1-, 3-, and 4-second delays.
  • Change ID Search mode to be disabled if either Department Hold or Channel Hold is active.
  • Improve UID detection on P25 and Motorola systems.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix Current Activity function displaying incorrect frequencies (Extreme, only)
  • Fix a condition that caused the unit to reboot after Conventional Discovery (Extreme, only)
  • Fix the situation where the currently held System would jump to another one when you held on a Department.

We are still listening (we really never stop). Keep us up-to-date on how you are using your HomePatrol-1 in our Community Forums.
