What they did was redesign this radio with a new CPU that can be upgraded. It is essentially the same radio with a slightly different display and a few firmware enhancements.

The new/updated radio is the PRO-164, PSR-300.

Why is a firmware update needed? What's not working?
The biggest reason people want to upgrade the firmware in their PRO-97s is because their local Motorola TRS rebanded. If they did, and are using incompatible frequencies, they are out of luck using the '97 to trunk track.

The reason the Pro164 replaced the Pro97 was to allow the scanner to have the firmware upgradeable. The Pro97 is still good for EDACS, LTR systems and MOT systems that have not been re-banded. There has also been some discussion that the Pro97 will continue work on systems that have been re-banded as long as the channels are not below a specific frequency but I do not remember what it is.
