      GPS controls the Temporary Lock/Unlock status. If no GPS is connected, all GPS controlled elements will be unlocked when you cycle power.

      It does not remember your last location when you cycle power.

      I use Startup Keys to quickly lock / unlock specific configurations for fixed locations.

      What happens to sites tagged as GPS in the scanner, when no GPS is connected? Are they locked or unlocked? Or, does the scanner remember last location when connected to GPS and set each site accordingly?

        If you start wil all elements unlocked, plug in a GPS, all out of range elements will be temporarily locked. If you then turn off power, remove the GPS, and turn power back on, everything will be unlocked.

        If you start with all elements locked, plug in a GPS, all in-range elements will be unlocked. If you then turn off power, remove the GPS, and turn power back on, those elements unlocked by GPS will remain unlocked. Those "untouched" will remain locked.

        If you start with all elements locked, plug in a GPS, all in-range elements are unlocked. Then, drive to another location that results in some additional elements being unlocked and some previously unlocked elements being locked. If you then turn off power, remove the GPS, and turn power back on, all elements unlocked by the GPS at any time during that session will be unlocked (since those that it unlocked, then later locked were temporarily locked).

        Hi Paul,

        Curiosity has gotten me on this one. I have been setting up GPS elements
        for some time, but have not used the GPS feature ***YET***. You mention
        that all GPS controlled elements will be unlocked when you cycle power.
        Based on the GPS controlling the temporary lock/unlock feature, would you
        possibly have meant the scanner will return to its locked/unlocked settings
        prior to the GPS use? I may have read into the answer, but I don't want the
        GPS unlocking systems that were locked prior to the GPS usage.

        Thanks,
        Dewey

            How does location based scanning handle quick key settings?
             Does a systems and/or groups quick key need to be enabled for the GPS to recognize/acknowledge it?
             If I start with no quick keys enabled, plug in a GPS, will any in range systems/groups become enabled? If I then turn the off power, remove the GPS, and turn power back on, will all the quick keys that became enabled with the GPS revert back to being not enabled?

            Thanks,

                  Several other manufacturers make GPSs that plug in using a

                  If you search for GPSs made for ham APRS, those will usually work, too.
