      JJ - get a 245XLT off ebay.. it's easy to set up and use.. Not sure if anything can be downloaded from a computer - as I never tried - but you just need your local freq's and this can do analog and trunked stuff - very easily.. I felt the same way. I'm sure the 346 can do lots of cool stuff - but I didn't have the time to put into it either..
      I don't know what homepatrol is - I'll have to check it out..

      - Maggie

      Sounds like you need a Uniden HomePatrol.
      Enter zip code and you're done.
