The referenced PC programming cable from Whistler is $29.95 (plus shipping and any applicable sales tax). The Whistler cable will work just fine with the PRO-106 but it DOES NOT include the stereo-to-mono adapter which is required to program some other older scanner models (see list below). This may or may not be important to the individual purchaser of the Whistler cable.

You can purchase this fully-compatible PC programming cable (with FTDI Chip) on eBay for $22.95 with FREE shipping included and no sales tax: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Radio-Shack...0/151446649833 This cable INCLUDES the stereo-to-mono adapter which is required if you want to use the same cable to program any of the older scanner models in the list below.

"These scanners need the 3.5mm 1/8" Mono Adapter included:

Radio Shack PRO-160 PRO-162 PRO-2051 PRO-2053 PRO-2067 PRO-2096 PRO-433 PRO-528 PRO-79 PRO-82 PRO-83 PRO-84 PRO-89 PRO-93 PRO-94 PRO-95 PRO-96 PRO-99
