Honestly at this point, with all of the upcoming changes to Project-25 systems across the county, I'd only consider the GRE PSR-800 as it does already have beta firmware for Project-25 Phase II; which many of the newer radios across the state will be capable of and eventually this is the migration path for the state in the future. Looks like you're in Lapeer; take note, they all just bought Motorola APX6000 series radios, with a flashcode that already contains the Project-25 Phase II options. While the PSR-500/Pro-106 are fine scanners, they leave no room for future growth and migration...
You can get a PSR-800 for around $369 or possibly even less if you look around the web. I bought mine from HRO with free shipping, but Amazon is also a good choice as well...
