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.
Other impressive features include:
A supplied 4 Gigabyte microSD card holds the entire USA and Canada database of radio systems. And it still leaves room for hundreds of hours of audio recording.
Programmable Alert LED lets you set a specific color to alert you when a channel becomes active.
TrunkTracker V with support for APCO Project 25 Phase I and Phase II, X2-TDMA, Motorola, EDACS, and LTR Trunked Radio Systems.
