Default Upgrade From A GRE 500 ? Opinions ?

Hello,

Have been away from the hobby for a while now.

I have a GRE 500 handheld unit, which I like very much.

I understand that GRE has had a new handheld unit out for a while.
More bells and whistles than the 500, I guess.

I'm in my 70's now, and frankly not that sharp with unerstanding the
technical specs anymore.

Might anyone please outline for me, and describe, what the new one
offers over what I have now ?

Worth considering an upgrade ? Why ?

BTW: Is there an even newer one expected "shortly" ?

Live outside of Boston, and use it mainly to monitor local PD and FD, as
well as some Aero from Hanscom and Logan.

Much thanks,
B.

The new unit is a Analog Trunk tracker the 310X/410X. It is an upgrade
of the 300/400 series due out in the Fall of 2010. The 500 is the latest
Digital Trunk tracker from GRE. GRE is also set to release a clone of
the PRO-107 iScan radio and Uniden will announce their 'iScan' version
on July 1st.
