About our Set-up & Optimize Service

With Scanner Master's exclusive Set-up & Optimize service we see to it that your BCD436HP is fully updated and ready to use for your area, perfect for your own use and especially perfect for a gift. First we optimize the internal database by updating the frequency library, which changes daily. We will also check and install any firmware updates to the HomePatrol before the radio ships. (The firmware is the operating system for the radio which may have been updated or tweaked by the factory following its production in Asia.) Scanner Master will then build a Favorites List for the customer (based on the ship to address of your order), or for the area in which the scanner will be used if the customer specifies a different city and county (for example if the radio is given as a gift). Scanner Master will also pre-tune the radio by entering the end-users zip code. Note that this service will add approximately 7 to 14 business days for processing before the radio will be shipped.

(The benefit of this Favorites List work is that we insure that the most important data to the user is readily accessible as often times, if the database for the end user's area hasn't been completely prepared with what's known as "geo-tagging" then some or all of the local agencies will not activate for scanning. Scanner Master insures that this will not be the case.)

APCO Project 25 Phase I and Phase II, X2-TDMA, Motorola, EDACS, and LTR Trunked Radio Systems

Don't buy the extras August 19, 2015
Reviewer: Steven Starnes from Ringsted, IA United States  
The product works fine, but the Optimization Option is a rip off.  I specifically made a note in my purchase order to ensure that it was programmed to receive the Digital system of my local Sheriff Dept.  Not only was this not done, but after Optimization my new $3600s radio received far less and was out performed by my older and much older scanner radios.  The Preloaded frequency bank was lacking too and my old radios still receive more.  So now I have to learn how to manually program this new system because of the junk software and disappointments of the service after the sale. Mu recommendation,  buy the radio from the lowest seller and don't bother getting ripped off on the add on services...it is underwhelming.  They aren't interested in making it right either..so don't bother with their "Customers Service".

Great scanner June 6, 2015
Reviewer: Katerine Alexander from Bandon, OR United States  
I love this scanner - no problems at all. The audio quality surprised me as being great for a handheld.

Programming via Sentinel is easy and allows full scanning control. The included rubber duck antenna isn't as good as other rd antennas that I have. Like all scanners, a good antenna makes all the difference.

Customer service April 6, 2015
Reviewer: mike anderson from houston , TX United States  
Absolutely sucks.....very rude, and should not be dealing with the public. Called to ask questions after the purchase, and was told that if I did not like the answer I was given, send everything back.....pay shipping ....so be it.....Really...Should have just bought it from Amazon.....

Pretty Smart Scanner April 1, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Southern Pines, NC United States  
While it took a call to Scanner Master's programmer to understand access to the favorites list they set up, I am now very happy with the BCD436. High quality, feels good in the hand. Audio volume and sound quality is very good. Beyond the pre-programmed local county list I had them do, there'll be a fair learning curve to add other lists. Otherwise, simply putting in your zip code is a joke IMHO. By doing so, the unit scans such a long list of services - some from several counties away - as to be pretty useless - a very misleading marketing claim.

However, this kind of thing is exactly why my gut said to deal with Scanner Master, the oldest and most experienced. They have not disappointed. Good people, great knowledge, outstanding, proven products!
