I have a GRE 600 when I tried to update the software that just came out, I get an error #10060 on the download of the update, it then freezes my cpu and I have to reboot? I can not load the new update as the software hangs on the download of the firmware? Any one know of a fix? Cpu is Windows 8.1, Qosmio Laptap.
Thanks

Yeah, where did you get the idea there was any updates available for this scanner? I have one too and the last update pushed out from GRE was a few years back before they folded. There is no mention of these models in the downloads area of the Whistler site. There are downloads for their equivalent model, the WS-1065, but the old PSR-600 cannot use that. I think I am safe in saying there will be no future support for the PSR-600. Mine works just fine, so that doesn't bother me in the least.

Last update for the PSR-800 was in 2015, after GRE folded, but still put out on the Ezscan software.

I know of no other sources to get updates from GRE, which ceased to exist in 2014 I believe. Can safely say that no upgrades of firmware for the 600 has been put out in the last couple years.

My 800 works great and if I found a place other than Ezscan, I would not touch it. Don’t know what software the 600 used.

In this case Mark he was asking about the PSR-600, which hasn't seen an update in some time since GRE went up in smoke. I suspect what the OP did was download the Whistler WS-1065 update and try to apply it to his PSR-600, which is not gonna work. The last firmware update I recall is v2.1 and DSP v1.4, though I can't recall what year that was from. Of course I was using WIN500 for this model.

GRE didn't supply software until the SD card radios?

To my knowledge that is correct. Prior to that point only firmware/DSP updates were provided by GRE. The PSR-500/600 and even the Whistler WS-1065 (and several others) required something like WIN500, PSREdit 500 or Arc 500 to program them. I have had a license for WIN500 for a few years and it has serviced various models I've owned. Once they came out with SD card scanners with the entire database on them, that was a game changer. They then provided EZ-Scan, as well as I-Scan f/u/w Radio Shack branded scanners.
