Depending on the scanning mode, a selection of more than 24 randomly selected messages and matching library images will be displayed. If additional information on the currently found item is required, the TR-580 can access additional databases on the world wide web.
A new feature present in the Mark III is the tracking mode. This allows for the user of the TR-580 to locate and track other users of the TR-580 by utilizing a local and global scanning screen.

In addition, a new Settings application allows the user to enable/disable sound effects, enable auto power up when the TR-580 application is launched, and enable the new tracking feature of the TR-580.
