    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.)

    Uniden 536 policescanner December 8, 2017
    Reviewer: Tony. from , N.C.  
    The uniden 536 scanner is great. where I live in N.C there on the digital viper p25,1 800mhz system.  And it works alot better than I thought it would. If your looking for a great digital policescanner give the uniden 536 a try. Get the best to begin with. And  let them program it for you. You pay for what you get. If and when I do buy another scanner it will be from scanner master.  And they will do the programming.  You take it out of the box turn it on and enjoy it.  Tony.     N.C.

    BCD536HP Scanner December 7, 2017
    Reviewer: Sidney Graubard from , Horseheads, NY  
    Like the scanner.  Instructions could be easier.  Too complicated for this novice.  Still awaiting response to question of how to turn close call back on.

    BCD536HP & Siren app June 23, 2017
    Reviewer: William P Guinn Jr from Hondo, TX United States  
    Once I got the hang of it, it's relatively simple to setup a local favorites and delete channels not needed.  

    I like the Siren app for ipad, over the LAN, except for it's losing audio rather often.  Looks like this problem has existed for at least a year.  I question why this problem isn't fixed yet/

    This scanner is awesome! March 16, 2017
    Reviewer: Ed Jaro from Harrison, AR United States  
    After three weeks I am still learning what this thing can do. I love the fact that it interfaces into my PC making so much easier to manage. I highly recommend Scanner Master! They are great to deal with and take the time to answer your questions.
