However, I find it to be a pain to turn on/off all he keys when I don't have the GPS attached (I also could remember what I had programmed into each key). I've resorted to storing all the surrounding counties (outside of my "home" listening area) in one or two Quick Keys â€" that makes it easier, but it still doesn't solve all the problems.

A user would set various quick keys on or off and then "save" that configuration to a "set name" or "set number"; the user would change the on/off quick keys and save another configuration. Each Quick Key Set (or configuration) would be used for my different "listening modes". A mechanism would then be required for the user to "select" the Quick Key Configuration, but with that I could quickly change from one configuration to another based on what I what to hear (e.g., home mode, travel mode, emergency mode, etc.). With such as feature, any "quick key" could belong to more than one listening configuration. This would give the user a much more flexible capability than the current start key functionality.
