GPS for Uniden Home Patrol II Scanner

This unit give your Uniden Home Patrol II the ability to automatically change frequencies based on the current GPS location of the unit. Ideal when you are travelling and don't know what frequencies to monitor as you drive through the area. If interested you can SAVE the frequencies to a new favorites list as you go so you can review what the frequencies were when you get home, or just let the scanner reprogram the unit as you travel.

Maybe Needed if Portable or Mobile

The sheet of paper that comes with it leaves a lot to be desired and is an old version that doesn't specify BCD436HP or BCD536HP but works for both. The additional connector cable for the handheld comes with it so you don't need to buy it.It's an easier than expected setup with changing the GPS baud rate to 4800, making all the connections and applying external power to the GPS unit. You can set the scanner to to a different ZIP Code and once the GPS is locked in then it should automatically switch scan list. That last part is just to see it do so. You should see the GPS icon on the display and a blinking red LED on the GPS unit when it's working. I expected to do more but that was it.The cables can be an issue for some but you can wrap them up and out of the way to reduce clutter and clearance. If you're indoors you don't need it. You also won't need it if you're in the same vicinity most of the time. You could also live with changing ZIP codes when you get to your destination; it's more for those that want everything in-between traveling.I finally broke down on getting one when it hit around the $70 mark because I thought it was too pricey for what it does.

Used on a trip from Arkansas to Louisiana it kept my scanner talking

I have both the Uniden BCD536HD and the handheld version BCD436HP this GPS worked flawlessly with both scanners. I ended up buying a second BCD536HP because the sound wasn't loud enough from the handheald scanner.This GPS has a tiny red LED to let you know it's got power as well as the screen says GPS on the scanner. It's well built the cables are solid I highly recommend it if you have either of the Uniden scanners I mentioned and travel with them

GPS works a treat but the interface plug is made of the flimsiest plastic ever. Less than a month and the only ways to keep it seated in my scanner are invoking a higher power or holding the flippin' thing with both hands.Still, to be fair, it's otherwise well designed and performs well.

Uniden BC-GPSK GPS Receiver

This product is the key to good scanning. When I installed the GPS device in my car the scanner came alive. I was able to receive many more of my favorites after I installed the GPS.There is plenty of wire that comes with the unit and it connects all the wires together so the joints all are secure. The one problem on my vehicle is there is little metal to attach the magnet to so I had to create an anchor point for it. The GPS plugged in to the scanner securely and did not create any problems even though the wiring harness was heavy.The wires were not long enough to attach the GPS to the outside of the vehicle so I had to use 3m connectors to attach the wiring harness to the dash and run the wires in the dash. Be careful to place the GPS in open area of the car as one of the areas I first attached the disk it did not receive so I had to relocate it.there in no instructions that come with the GPS so I had to watch the you Tube video on how to install it. It is however quite easy, compared to the scanner set up.

Works just fine, grabs the sats quickly

I had another, very similar model, which I burned out by leaving plugged in 24x7 in my car. In the hot sun. So I guess it was time. This one hooked up easy and acquires the birds in about 30 seconds. The only downside (if you are using this to hook to a Uniden scanner) is that there is NO reason for the huge serial connectors on this thing. Should be eliminated. Harder to hide the wires with this monstrous thing attached. I have all my wires hidden, and I put most of the larger stuff under the trim in the center console.

No extra cables needed

Verified Purchase

As noted by several other buyers, this kit comes complete with all necessary cables to immediately connect to their scanners. Mine is a Uniden BCD436HP and everything plugged right in with cables long enough to fit any mobile application. Installation and use is largely intuitive. There were no specific instructions or diagrams but it is simple enough. Place the GPS receiver on the dash, connect all the cables, insert the appropriate plug into the scanner, and the power cord into the cigarette lighter and you are on your way. The set up has worked flawlessly for several weeks while being driven around surrounding states.

It is a lot of cable to deal with but I was able to stuff it into the console of my Toyota Tundra quite easily. The antenna puck

I used this on a 3000 mile trip through 6 states and it worked as described. It is a lot of cable to deal with but I was able to stuff it into the console of my Toyota Tundra quite easily. The antenna puck did not need to be outside the truck it worked just fine sitting on top the dash. Very handy item for people who want to let the HP 2 find it's own location!

Works great, even when connected to two scanners

I have two Uniden BCD996P2 scanners in my car. I bought one BC-GPSK unit and connected it to both scanners with a 9-pin serial Y-splitter. It works perfectly. Both scanners lock and unlock sites and groups just as I've programmed them.I always suspected that my car's speedometer was reading a few MPH too fast. The Uniden GPS receiver confirmed my suspicion. I pressed the GPS button on one of my scanners to see that my car's speedometer is off by approximately 7%.

great for cars, for home scanning, dont bother.

If you have a compatible uniden scanner, this does work well and connects to satellites fast. It allows you to drive to new areas and it auto acquires local signals. I have not used this for this purpose though, i thought it might be a quicker way to get local channels, but it doesn't work that way. It's made to be used in your car. So if you do drive a lot for your job, then this might be something you would probably want to try. For at home though, it's not needed. Oh and it does use the sirf star III chip set, so it acquires satellites fast.

Works Great for Uniden Homepatrol 1

Works great. At first I thought I received a defective product. But after letting the gps operate for about 10 minutes, it worked just fine on my Uniden Homepatrol 1 scanner. After the initial startup, the gps works instantaneously. So, if you get this gps, let it do it's thing for about 15 minutes or so.
