So I went to Radio Shack yesterday and took notice they have the Pro 2055 for $160. The newer model is Pro 163 Looks like the 2055 but it has better features like it picks up the 700mhz. I know the LCD screen on the 2055 goes bad so i didn't grab it. Does anyone know anything about the Pro 163 yet? they have it for $199 in the store. So I am just curious, is it better overall then the 2055? Is it worth it over my current Bearcat 350C? I think thats the model number. I like the idea of being able to have ID tags plugged in so I could have it say what channel it is and such. And be able to program a PL tone (finally thank god) haha. Also if I were to get this, what kind of cable would I need to program it from my computer, and is there free software to program the 163?
