If it's the patent holding it back, why can't Uniden just say, the feature will be available once the patent issue is resolved? They could give a patent exp date, if they wanted, or not.. At least everyone would have a general idea...
I think the problem might have to do with poor research or maybe no research at all. The Escort patent date is very confusing and I don't really know either but it appears that after the patent was filed and then approved something else was going on and there are two extension dates that add X number of days. So what used to look like July of 2019 being the end date as that is about the time the patent was granted approximately June/July 1999. It looks like seven hundred something days were added IE an extension so not expiring anytime soon how I read it (but I don't work in the Patent Office nor am I a patent attorney).
Is this about right, anybody know how this patent stuff actually works as to dates and extensions?
