This device requires an FTDI USB VCP Driver. Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers cause the USB device to appear as an additional COM port available to the PC. Application software can access the USB device in the same way as it would access a standard COM port. A link to download the free driver is included.

For years, GRE made scanners for Radio Shack with the Realistic or Radio Shack or Patrolman names on them. Only occasionally would RS stray and get a model from Uniden (e.g., Pro-2050). In 2013, GRE stopped producing scanners under their own brand or for Radio Shack. In 2014, Whistler purchased and started production on scanners using GRE's intellectual property. For now, they are the same as the previous GRE models, just with Whistler labels.
To add to the confusion, RS re-issued some of their scanners with new model numbers. You can use this table to cross reference the various model numbers and distributor:
