Come to think of it, I do indeed recall RS selling the GRE radios for a higher price. However, I've not read where RS has opted to brand one of these Whistler-made radios yet.You guys must not remember their inflated prices when they sold GRE scanners on their website... Their radio shack brand equivalents are generally much cheaper..
According to this post from Lindsay, Whistler plans to release at least 4 scanners under the Radio Shack brand label.Come to think of it, I do indeed recall RS selling the GRE radios for a higher price. However, I've not read where RS has opted to brand one of these Whistler-made radios yet.
ya mean formerly made by GRE?Actually that's an original GRE, not a new Whistler unit.
They may technically be the same, but the former was made by Whistler and the latter is made by Whistler.
They may actually not have the same performance even though the latter is supposed to be a clone of the former. It all comes down to the quality of the tranfer of the technology, assembly, test etc.
In order to be on the same marketable playing field I can't imagine them being far north or south of Uniden pricing. However, if Uniden addresses all the issues and the upcoming app release goes famously then GRE may have to start unbuckling its pants and prepare to drop its drawers.Ok so how much are the ones going to be that do phase 2?!!
Do you have a source for that rumor?What I don't understand is the price of the radio being high at all. GRE already bought the proprietary access to the various systems. From what I've understood, the high cost of digital scanners is directly related to software acquisition. I might be wrong.
