    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.)

    BCD436HP Uniden Bearcat Police Scanner December 23, 2018
    Reviewer: Joni Minor from Bellevue, NE United States  
    Extremely happy with it! I still have some things to learn but much of it is very easy to operate. I am NOT tech savvy with anything, so it takes me longer to learn things! Great scanner!

    Great Scanner! February 2, 2018
    Reviewer: Michael Sims from Southbury, CT United States  
    Finally a scanner like BCD396 with HP programming. Had both a 396 and HP1 and loved them both. The BCD436HP is a mix of both with a little extra(for a small fee of coarse).
    So far so good. Like all smaller portable scanners the speaker is a little weak but, with earphones or light headphones the sound is really good. Back in the saddle again! Love to listen on road trips.

    BCD436HP December 4, 2017
    Reviewer: Timmy from Newton, IA United States  
    Great and easy to use.  Programming is easy with the supplied sentinel software.  The scanner has more features than the BCD325p2.  The DMR upgrade works well with the sites I have programmed.  The ScannerMaster service department helped me when the new batteries wouldn't charge for the first time.
