Re: [BCD396XT] BC396XT and Freescan
- Make sure you download the brand-new .8c version, which fixes (and very, very promptly) a bunch of issues. Very fast turnaround on a new version. Wish more people turned things around that fast...

Subject: [BCD396XT] BC396XT and Freescan
So I'm not ususally a Freescan user.. Not prejeduced against it, just glommed onto Butel's stuff a long time ago.
Got the XT yesterday, put a good charge on it, poked around and about 11pm decided what the heck, TV nights over, see if Freescan really can handle this new bugger.. Gotta say it worked like a champ! Went right to the Import feature and uploaded Plano, Allen and Collin County, TX, ran a quick test and started getting comms from each system.
Added a bunch more and all appear to be doing the right thing.
When I get home, I'll see if Freescan can handle the data from my ARC files so that I can match up my current BCD996T "plan"... Now THAT would be nice!
I'll let ya know.. Kudo's to the guy(s) at Freescan!!
