4 of 5 One problem February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Douglas Poppelreiter from Magalia, CA United States  
I have been a scanner buff for many years. This is the first one that 'locked' up on me.
Fortunately the 'initializing instructions were easy to follow & execute. Having to re-program was not fun.
I probably will not buy another Whistler because of the problem.
