Which model numbers are you referring to? As you know there are several.

I think every radio and the different manufacturers has some good and not so good. You just need to pick your poison and be done with it and enjoy whatever radio you buy.

(this isn't new but I'm using it anyway)

What's a better car - Chevy or Ford?

What soda is better - Pepsi or Coke?

(answer -- )

Only you can decide for yourself (and that doesn't mean you can decide for everyone else).

Those aren't models, those are brands, and as stated it's a matter of opinion, both have good and bad points.

Wouldn't it be the Uniden 436 and 536 since they are pre-programmed to the area you are in plus have that mobile feature with the GPS to scan the freqiences of the area you are travelinging in?

That might not make them best, especially of you have no need for those capabilities.

That might make them the best for you, not even a consideration for me.

My PSR 800 was stolen this week in Lafayette, Indiana. Watch for it in local pawn shops. What would be a good replacement? I travel a lot and liked that with the 800 I could go just about anywhere, type in the name of the city and everyting was there. Do any other scanners have this feature?

Default PSR 800 replacement

Wait a bit for the release of the Whistler badged PSR 800. If you were happy with it. I have the PSR-800 and the Uniden 436. I use the PSR 800 all the time. The Uniden is still under development if you ask me. It's been out 6 months and still doesn't have a feature it was advertised to have. It's Audio AGC is not nearly as good as any digital PSR.
