No kidding! I'm in the same position! I have a PR0-528 which is 'ok,' but I'd really like to have either a 162 or a 160.. The DCS/CTCSS decode feature sounds delightful, plus that bigger screen with alpha tags, and better sound?!!! AHHH I need a new toy.. I'm extremely tempted to get the 162 right now since it's only on sale until 6/14....I am dying to get one!
It is supposed to be the mobile equivalent of the Pro-162. Seeing how great the 162 has performed in my area, I can only conclude that the mobile will do just as good. Hope it comes out soon.
SO.. The only major difference is 162/Uniden 164/GRE and the speaker volume is subjectively better on the 162? Functionality wise they both pack the same features right? Sounds like you prefer the 162 for the 'easier' programming and your previous issue on intermod with GRE products?Im telling you that the Tone decode is awesome. It is not only instant when you want to find out the tone on a single channel but when you do either a service search or a programmed (by you) search, it automaticaly and instantly gives you PL/DPL on whatever signal you find if it has one. Its great! You find a new frequency and its tone to boost.......
