Yep,,I thinks Whistler is going to be the only bet,If they re-release their version of the 800...
EBAY would be another road,Just need to look,like every day 5 times a day.And you'll likely
pay a bloated price.
Im hoping whistler brings their version to market,I need a new faceplate.But I too am S-O-L!
Got a few new ones here,I believe I have I few more shiny ones,they came with the plastic pull off cover,I had the chance to buy some parts from GRE just before they closed,I had made a call looking for a side cover for the USB and ended up buying battery covers and faceplates,they sell fast when you can't get them and people need them.
Whistler has said that they bought the intellectual property rights from GRE and that around Nov. they will be releasing new scanners including support for the GRE line.
Sounds like a little knock on the GRE brand in this thread.
We will never know the truth about GRE exiting the radio business.
I have an older GRE product (Pro-96) that has gaffer's tape and rubber bands holding the battery case in place. I've have been searching around for a battery cover for a long time and pretty much abandoned looking. I think I'd have better success finding someone with a 3-D printer and making one at this point.
