You got that right! The proprietary rights monster has to be fed. I know that I have a simpleton's understanding of my radio, but I know one thing for sure. I am a Uniden Man. It has taken two years to finally understand the memory structure. For some reason, I found it very difficult to differentiate between V-Folders and Uniden's system. I believe I like the latter better.One note....Whistler doesn't currently offer ProVoice, only Uniden does.
And this begs the question that Whistler does NOT pay anything for use of DMR technology????Uniden pays royalties to Motorola for use of their DMR patents.
Are you sure? Take a look at the DMR LICENSEES section. I see Uniden listed but not Whistler.They pay. The price is built into the sticker price of their scanners.
Very much agree, my comment was more about NXDN . I would gladly pay Uniden for a NXDN upgrade if were available.No one works for free. If it's an 'update' to firmware to fix or improve an original feature that's different. But if it's an 'upgrade', you should expect to pay something.
Correct. Whistler does not."Uniden pays royalties to Motorola for use of their DMR patents."
And Whistler does not?
