I own both of these and like the 106 more. It isn't just because it is new, but it has several options that make it more "user friendly" as well as better features. Some of the high points are:
-Easier manual channel navigation
-Larger, easier to read display
-Easier scan list understanding
-Much better user interface (text menus)
-Colored LED that you can assign to different channels..such as your priority channels. This way you can see what your receiving at a glance without having to actually look at the display,
-Remote control capability using the Win500 software.

A Pro-96 is a good scanner, but the Pro-106 blows it out of the water.

Can i Program My Motorola XV100 (XTN series) To be a sanner??


No, your XV1100 is a one channel radio with a particular list of frequencies available. It can only do one frequency at a time. Sorry.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/XTN_Series_User_Manual_E.pdf

Best regards.

Won't trunk track. Searches frequencies, but will not scan talk groups.


This radio will only work on analog trunked systems, if it is a digital or P25 system, you need to upgrade to a digital scanner like the PRO96, or newer.

Sanner only taking one page and not the remaider in the tray


Switch the little button on top of the scanner next to the 3 buttons. This switches between 1 page or multiple page.

Sanner


For some unknown reason the scanner wont always work from the scan button, use the Image Zone program that came with the printer that is the best way to scan, you have better control over the scan.
