      Who cares about what other countries are doing, we are dealing the US and a
      lesser degree Canada which according to sales for the upcoming 396XT which
      is for the North American market, not South America.
      And RR isn't the bible on scanning or scanners, much of the info there is
      wrong, and it's that way because they depend on site users to "give" them
      the info so they can sell it. Just because it isn't listed on RR doesn't
      mean it hasn't been figured out, you just need to know how and where to find
      it, and it aint rocket science if you do have to figure it out yourself. It
      took a 25 minutes to figure out the two systems in this area and guess what,
      RR was wrong on both!
