      How about keeping the quick keys, for those systems you don't want to listen to at home. Leave those quick keys off. Then when you have the GPS connected it will turn them on. Another way is to use the Start up keys. Have 1 set of start up keys for when you are home.

      Does anyone know if there is a way to lock out channels unless a GPS is attached?
      When I am home, I am only interested in what is nearby me. This is true when I am driving, but the GPS manages it. At home without the GPS hooked up, EVERYTHING comes in.
      I need some way to tell the scanner I am home and go to a "home" mode.

        I set up two different sets of systems: System assigned to Startup Key 1 are for GPS use and are all enabled/disabled by GPS (and are subdivided down to the patrol district). Systems assigned to Startup Key 2 are for at my desk and don't use GPS (and are "lumped together" more coarsely than the GPS ones). When I put it in the car, I press 1 while powering on to lockout the "desk" systems and unlock the "mobile" systems. Similarly, when I put it back on my desk, I hold 2 while powering on to lockout all the GPS systems and unlock the desk systems.

              As for the best solution, I would submit that the easiest solution is to
              just use a cheap GPS at your house or maybe get a GPS data simulator for
              a PC to feed the scanner 'fake location data'.

                Thanks to everyone who replied. I will try the solutions provided as soon as I finish working out a location range kink I am experiencing.
                Somewhere between Freescan and my scanner, the ranges of my locations change from my desired settings of 3-5 miles to higher ranges, usually in a multiple of 8, such as 8 miles, 32 or 64 miles.
                This is frustrating, but once I resolve it, I will tackle the generation of Systems with Startup Keys.

                Actually this is a bug that occurs in .8E. It happens with conventional groups. However, the next version will fix this.
