Please document all issues that pertain to Home Patrol and their solutions here. If it's not in the owner's manual, please consider documenting it here. Be as specific as possible as to the steps taken - the devil is in the details. The more detail you provide, the better.


Updating the HomePatrol to the Latest Version

Cruise over to the Extreme Update wiki entry and follow the instructions.

Loud Buzz

Slow Response to Commands on Touch Screen

  • Symptom: When the radio restarts you end up at the initial 6 page setup. The favorites and database would not respond
  • Resolution:
  1. Get a new 2 Gig SD card
  2. Use Windows to quick format it before putting it in the Home Patrol.
  3. Connect Home Patrol to computer, opened Sentinel.
  4. From the toolbar clicked on Homepatrol, clear user data, check the box for "Display all drives", highlight the drive and then click OK.
