I am confused and new to scanners, I purchased the Uniden BCD436HP because well you really couldn't get a good opinion on if this was better than the Whistler - WS1088 or TRX-1. Due to many folks saying that Uniden was a great all around I figured I would go for it. Now after having the scanner for just over a week, I find out that we have to pay to have the scanner upgraded to ProVoice and DMR yet this is a free upgrade by Whistler. Can anyone explain why Uniden charges for software upgrades and the competition doesn't? Are these that much better, I'm lost.
