Can't remember what thread I read someone ask if Whistler might pick up support GRE products. I thought it was a good question so I asked Whistler .....


ME: Will the Whistler company be offering support for any GRE products since
you've picked up their line of scanners?

WHISTLER: We are currently looking into that, but at this time it is unlikely
because we only acquired GRE's intellectual property. However some of our
parts such as antennas, belt clips, etc will be interchangeable so we will
be able to provide them and we will have a trade in program that will give
a discount off of the purchase of a new Whistler scanner when you trade in
a scanner of any brand.

Thank you for your interest!

First, it's amazing how you can email Whistler and they actually GET BACK TO YOU. Refreshing.

Second, I only have two scanners and I will probably hold onto at least one of them if and when I go for a new Whistler scanner later this year.

First i'm hear of it.
First I heard of it as well, guess I missed that (and many other) thread. I confess I don't read the entire forum each day.

Sorry to disappoint you with old news. I did do a quick forum search for any threads with "Whistler support" in the title of the thread and found none.

I thought so too.

I need a yellow battery holder for my PRO-106 so I am hopeful Whistler starts to replenish the supply of them.

$50.00 each on Ebay is just a lil' too steep.

I love how the answer to GRE support is we will give you pennies on the dollar for your old GRE branded scanner for a new Whistler model. Does Whistler have to support GRE branded scanners? No. Should they? Absolutely.

Wait until the last minute before you bid so you don't drive the cost up (of course others may bid early nothing you can do about that).

Sorry guys I'm confused here. Whistler is offering a buy back program on GRE scanners at a discounted rate? What if your old scanner is in perfect working order?! So does all this mean that they(whistler) won't continue to do the updates or support or repair for the GRE models? If this is so that stinks.

NOWHERE does it say ANYTHING about accepting
only GRE scanners for trade-in.

this is what it actually says:

a trade in program that will give
a discount off of the purchase of a
new Whistler scanner when you trade in
a scanner of any brand.

It's easy to see how rumors are started on the web.

Ok whatever but you didn't answer my question? Are they going to continue to do right by GRE PSR 800 owners? Will they continue the EZ Scan weekly database updates?!

Did you even read the first post?

I asked if they are going offer support for GRE products. Oh, and how would they "continue" something they never did?

:confused:
