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.)

Superior Service and Product October 14, 2015
Reviewer: Rodney Stephens from Nampa, ID United States  
I am very pleased with my purchase of a Uniden BCD536HP scanner from Scanner Master. The service, packing and shipping were excellent and very timely direct to my door. The box, scanner and all parts supplied were in perfect new condition and had been well packed. The scanner works flawlessly and is a dream to program and use manually or while using the Remote software and VLC audio stream on the PC or while using the Uniden Siren App. Absolutely the best of ALL scanners I have ever owned or used. Second place is the BCD436HP. Thanks again Scanner Master - you are the best!!!

The Absolute Best June 6, 2015
Reviewer: Don Alexander from Bandon, OR United States  
I have been a scanner user for over 40 years and had most types. This scanner surprises even me. It is easy to use, program, and I really like the new features (except WIFI - have no need for that). The all included memory data base is great.

I found the sentinel software easy to learn and it works great for my 436HP as well.

BCD536HP May 30, 2015
Reviewer: Barnard Hamlin from Fitzgerald, GA United States  
Great scanner! I am finding it to be as sensitive as my 996XT and 15X scanners. Nice sharp display. The Siren app works great with the wireless connection on my phone. The 536 is an excellent performer and am glad I have purchased this. The only annoying issue I have noted with this scanner is the fact that if you choose to use an external speaker it has to be an amplified speaker. I chose to use the Butel ARC536 software with it for greater control of managing favorites lists. But then again I have been a fan of Butel scanner software for many years. I should also note that Scanner Master processed and shipped my scanner right away. I was very impressed with the speed at which they got this to me.
