The BCD536HP is Uniden's new flagship mobile scanner...which incorporates two firsts. Like the BCD436HP, it is the first standard mobile scanner to include the ease of use of the HomePatrol-style database; simply enter your zip code and away you go. But, the BCD536HP adds to that WiFi connectivity, allowing you to listen to and control your scanner using your smartphone or tablet...from anywhere in your home, vehicle, or around the world.

About our Set-up & Optimize Service
With Scanner Master's exclusive Set-up & Optimize service we see to it that your BCD536HP 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.)

scanner July 29, 2014
Reviewer: LARRY HODNETT from HELENA, AL United States  
The radio itself seems to work pretty well.  The Sentinel software lacks many basic things for programming the scanner.  I can find no way to add a new favorite that does not require the database.  I cannot find a way to manually enter frequencies.  You also cannot print a list of your favorites.  I am not talking about the freqs, just the names.

Great Scanner!! July 15, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Granbury, TX United States  
I have read a lot of reviews on this scanner and there was a lot of bad ones. Ranging from poor volume to weak signal.. I found none of this true. Very easy to set up had it up and running in just about 5 minuets. This is my 2nd digital scanner and the best one out of the 2 first one was a RadioShack.  I would recommend this to any one..

The New BCD536HP June 20, 2014
Reviewer: David C. from Central New Jersey - United States  
The concept of a digital scanner having the all the ease of programming and operation is truly incredible.  I believe this is the best scanner I've owned, in over thirty years of scanning emergency services.

Uniden has developed a winner with this one!

bcd 536 hp May 28, 2014
Reviewer: Joe Jones from Garner, NC United States  
Had to have you guys program my GRE 600 & BCD 996XT I got from you in 2012 because it was too complicated for me. Finally, a top notch scanner for dummies like myself. I absolutely love it! Also like the normal size as opposed to the bigger, clunkier original Home Patrol version. Guess now I'm gonna have to order one of those racks to put them all in.

Great Scanner April 22, 2014
Reviewer: Edward White from Jersey City, NJ United States  
Uniden has added another Great scanner to their line. The Sentinel software is not that bad. The sound quality excellent, and the wifi connection makes it really easy to control the scanner when you are not close to it. Overall a good buy for the buck.
