These bars really took me by surprise. Very impressive, and so much so I'm actually keeping one for my own collection (I'm not big on LED lightbars). Now if I could just find some Code 3 programmers to play with these...

I don't believe a programmer is necessary if you're just trying to change some patterns. At least it isn't on the one you sent me. I followed the directions in this manual (PDF attached) and it worked for me.

I do like this version of the bar. Code 3 became kind of a double-edged sword of being able to swap patterns with combinations of wires, which made things somewhat simplified, but there wasn't a way to actually set up a program like with other companies. Now that code 3 did release a program for this I don't think anyone would argue with me that it is not as good as Sound Off or Whelen. Ever since the halogen age died, I feel like code 3 has been hitting a lot of "close but not quite" designs. It's like they weren't poised to jump into the next phase of the industry and lag just enough to be not a contender, at least for me in my purposes.
