1. It is plug & play. Enter your zip code and it knows what frequencies to scan in your area. Game on!
2. If you travel, buy the Uniden-brand GPS unit available on Amazon (Uniden BC-GPSK Serial GPS Receiver for Scanner and Marine Products). The reason to buy the Uniden unit is A) As you travel, the GPS feeds your location into the scanner and the scanner updates the frequencies it is scanning to those near you and B) because it is also plug & play. Mine arrived with the necessary cords to plug directly into the scanner, and it worked from that moment. Perfect!
3. You can connect the scanner to your PC to update the firmware and the frequency database from Uniden. It is easy. No need to buy a third-party web database. Uniden regularly updates their database. I purchased my unit in 9/2014 and used it nine months before performing updates. It works fine out of the box.
4. The scanner has two batteries, a main battery for scanning and a secondary battery for the clock. Charge the main battery first, then turn on the scanner to charge the secondary battery. Oddly, the clock battery charges when the unit is on.
5. On trips, an external antenna will extend your range. I purchased a magnetic mount antenna on Amazon for about $30 (ASIN B004HM9RHE) and it works great. Almost a plug & play device, you do not need an SWR meter as it is pre-tuned. Plug & play caveat: You will need a BNC Female/SMA Male Adaptor (ASIN B00CLFFM4G) to plug the antenna into the scanner.
6. When using in a vehicle, know the law. In Michigan where I reside, you need permission from the state police to have a police scanner in your car. I have been told by the Ontario Provincial Police it is legal to have a scanner in a vehicle in Canada but have not been able to find the law on the books.
7. That's it. This scanner is as simple or complex as you wish it to be. For a busy dad, the simplicity is welcome and the Plug & Play No Fuss Ready-to-Use attributes actually let me enjoy the thing without brushing off my kids to learn how to make it work. It reminds me of the original Apple MacIntosh computer: A product so smart you can turn it on and use it without devoting hours of study to get it to function :-)
This scanner has endless features, but I only use it to listen to local police, fire, ambulance, etc.

I own 4 other Uniden scanners that I like very much, Uniden is slipping in quality in my opinion.
The scanner itself is awesome the price on Amazon was unbeatable anywhere.
Ease of use for this unit is great especially for using it right out of the box. Enter your zip/ postal code and your pretty much good to go.
I previously owned a Radio Shack Pro 96 digital trunking scanner. The BCD436HP is a thousand times better. It picks up signals much better, it does phase 2 APCO (main reason I bought it), it's compact, lightweight, much slimmer than the Pro 96, battery life is great, it lasts up to 8 hours on a single charge. The only thing I don't like is you cannot operate it while the batteries charge, which is not a huge deal since you can just rotate sets of batteries.
The replay and record feature is amazing. It can pre-record up to 240 seconds of radio transmissions, so you can record anything you hear pretty much and not miss anything.
It's fairly easy to program and operate, especially if you've used a scanner before.
One of the best features about this scanner is it comes with the programming software on it already, which is free and works great. If you don't want to use the software (to create a favourites list) you can simply enter in your zip code or use the GPS auto-locate function and it will automatically load the radio database for your area and you can choose which agency you want to monitor.
The given programming makes for very easy use and allows for additional input once you become used to the scanner and it’s logistics. The additional Am/Fm frequncies makes this nice to have when travelling and camping as compared to my BC125AT.
Though I still consider myself an amateur user of scanners, all in all, this is a very sturdy unit and delivers what is expected with the sole exception of needing a better antenna.
Less than half a year in, the mount on the back broke off the device, and the antenna that's included, the hot lead that pulls into the device broke off inside the antenna jack.
The scanner has decent audio, and combined with a good antenna in the car, it makes for a great mobile scanner, it's nice that it comes pre programmed because I'd dread programming it.
The only other issue is that it likes to eat batteries like no ones business.
Thank you Amazon for listing this used item, great product at a great price.
