      But that would require that the scanner act as a host device for the
      USB GPS receiver. How much computing horsepower would that take?

      Given that the Icom ID-51, Kenwood TH-D72, and Yaesu VX-8G amateur
      radio handhelds have internal GPS receivers as standard equipment, I
      don't know why Uniden couldn't produce a handheld scanner with the
      same feature. Yes, it would be an added cost that would have to be
      borne by the consumer.

      Which leads us down a different path. Can the scanning community
      support an even more expensive scanner than the HP-1? Is there enough
      of a market to justify the development, testing, and production of
      such a scanner?
