Looks awful similar to the pro-106. What is different in this new model?

These are not news, a number of discussions going on about them in this very forum. They look similar because they are the same thing, just built by Whistler instead of GRE.

If you use psr edit 500 and get one be sure to update the software that will then support the whistler, radio shack versions

The Whistler models are, but not yet as the RS models

Whistler Scanners - The RadioReference Wiki

.
I'm fairly certain many of the new RadioShack and Whistler scanners and their wiki pages will eventually be turned into redirects (or the appropriate GRE/RadioShack pages will be moved/renamed) once someone actually picks one up and verifies that the changes are cosmetic in nature.

I am tempted to pick up the new 106 clone just to play with and see if there are any improvements that I perceive.

Does anyone know if I can clone my 106 to the 651?

The user manual released for the Pro-651 (on the RadioShack website) says that cloning is cross compatible with all the GRE scanners including the PSR-500, PSR-600, Pro-106, Pro-197, and Pro-652.

Hi,
Does anyone know if the Pro-651 has encrypt mute feature on p25 encrypted transmissions?
It was the biggest failure of the pro-106
