Uniden Bearcat BCD536 HP Advanced Digital Trunking Scanner



The Bearcat BCD536HP is Uniden's new flagship mobile scanner - which incorporates two firsts. Like the BCD436HP, it is the first mobile scanner to include the ease of use of the HomePatrol-style database. Simply enter your zip code and away you go. The second innovation is WiFi connectivity. Now you listen to and control your scanner using your smartphone or tablet from anywhere! You get full 31 band frequency coverage.

County/State Name:



If you are considering the purchase of  this scanner, you may have thought that programming frequencies by zip code would get you to the frequencies you want to hear.  The only problem is that by using zip code, you may get thousands of frequencies, most of which, you are not interested in hearing.  You can get frequencies so far outside your area that the scanner could not pick them up in any case.  However, it needs to take the time to scan through all those channels.  That means that the scan speed is slowed down and you may miss the action that is happening just around the corner while listening to a dog catcher 50 miles away.  We can solve this problem by programming in just the frequencies for your county.  That way you will still have the master frequency list, but you can also limit the amount of frequencies the scanner has to go through, simply by going to the favorites list we make for your county.
