I just purchased this scanner and it was delivered today. I thought this model would be the easiest to use. It is much smaller than I thought it would be. The pictures below show it next to my Galaxy Nexus. The scanner is very easy to navigate. I was able to have 5 scan lists built in a couple minutes. I could not find my local city police on the database though. I am sure this is due to the fact that I had never messed around with a scanner until today. This is almost like using an iPod. I had only had the scanner operational for around 5 minutes when an armed bank robbery took place in my county. It was pretty cool listening to all the units swarming the area. I hope this helps me while I travel. I spend a lot of time in Colorado and the signs that say area patrolled by aircraft drive me crazy. This is why I bought the new toy. I will update this as I become more familiar with the unit. I ordered a much better antenna that will not be here until Tuesday.
