    New radio from Uniden?

    The Uniden folks have something new in the works apparently:

    https://www.uniden.com/automotive/cb...earTracker_885


    Somewhat interesting.

    What do y'all think? Any thoughts on the features of this one?

    Certainly not what I'd introduce for a new radio, but then no one asked me.....

    I’ve never been a big fan of multiple use radios mainly because if one side breaks you normally can’t use the other side. That said; I suppose if you are fighting space constraints as some people who have newer model vehicles face this combo could come in handy, providing they are not cost prohibitive.

    On a side note, even though the unit described above says it will monitor “Digital” frequencies many law enforcement agencies are scrambling their digital signal which renders most high end and high cost scanners somewhat useless.

    This is the part I find interesting:

    "BearTracker Warning System alerts you whenever there is nearby public safety radio traffic. The BearTracker 885 does this by checking the low-power signal produced by the radio in the public safety vehicle, so if you get an alert, you know that there is activity within only a couple of miles from you. Best of all, this feature is legal to use… even in commercial interstate commerce vehicles.** "

    I interpret that as NOT being able to receive any radar gun signals, but only public safety radio transmissions like the ones the automated detour signs transmit in construction areas advising motorists of alternate routes. But that's okay, I have Escorts in everything I drive anyway, just seems like misleading information on Uniden's part.

    I get those alerts now on my stupid-phone... problem with is, usually by the time you get the alert, it's too late to make a change in your route...

    I agree with HR, just something else that could screw up, and no one knows how to fix...
