    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

There are currently people looking for the Uniden BC-UTGC GPS USB cable that is used with the SDS100 and BCD325P2 (see pictures below). This topic was being somewhat discussed in another RR thread (https://forums.radioreference.com/uniden-prospective-owners/372694-sds100-status.html) from post #10 on but I figured it was more appropriate for the topic to have its own thread.

From the information gathered and posted thus far it appears that the cable is currently not available/in-stock from any known vendor/dealer and is on national back order until at least late July or early August. Anyway I've been trying to hunt one of these cables down myself (unsuccessful so far) and in the process I compiled a list of known dealers of the cable. To avoid someone else having to "re-invent the wheel" below is a list of dealers of the Uniden BC-UTGC GPS USB cable along with their pricing and shipping charges:

Universal Radio $14.95 plus $6.95 shipping: https://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/scanners/6100.html

Uniden $14.99 plus unknown shipping charges: https://www.uniden.com/shop/communication/gps-usb-cable/

Zip Scanners $29.99 plus $6.99 shipping: https://www.zipscanners.com/uniden-gps-cable.html

Giga Parts $14.99 plus $9.95 shipping: https://www.gigaparts.com/uniden-bc-utgc-uniden-bearcat-gps-adapter-cable-for-the-bcd325p2.html

Factory Outlet Store $19.95 with FREE shipping: https://udn.factoryoutletstore.com/details/611522/uniden-bc-utgc.html

Scanner Master $19.95 plus shipping charges based on your zip code: https://www.scannermaster.com/Uniden_Bearcat_GPS_Adapter_Cable_BCD325P2_SDS100_p/10-731909.htm

Bearcat Warehouse $22.99 plus $7.95 shipping: https://www.bearcatwarehouse.com/accessories/bc-utgc-gps-cable

If anybody knows of any other source(s) to purchase the cable please post your information and link(s) for the benefit of others who are looking for this cable.

Note that we are working to expedite arrival of another batch of BC_UTGC cables. Currently hoping to get these aired in for July arrival. Not very many people used these with the BCD325P2, so the sudden surge in demand when SDS100 came out caught our parts buyer by surprise. We quickly sold out of what had previously been a 12-18 month supply.

I called UFOS where I placed my order Wednesday night and he confirmed they are out of stock. I told him to keep my backorder on order.

That seems like a smart move seeing that the Factory Outlet Store's price for the BC-UTGC cable is $19.95 with FREE shipping included. Shipping charges on small orders like this from some vendors/dealers can be significant especially when compared to the selling price of the item being purchased (see my post #1 above).

Yeah I’m not really in a big hurry for it. I used my gps with my 436 yesterday and it worked magnificently well.

For those who are still looking for the Uniden BC-UTGC GPS USB cable for the SDS100 or BCD325P2, Scanner Master now has them in stock (as of 13:00 EDT on 08-06-2018). If you want one I would act RIGHT AWAY as none of the other online dealers are currently showing any stock on their respective websites.

Link to Uniden BC-UTGC GPS USB cable at Scanner Master ($19.95 plus shipping charges based on your zip code): https://www.scannermaster.com/Uniden_Bearcat_GPS_Adapter_Cable_BCD325P2_SDS100_p/10-731909.htm

Could you share the pinouts of the Uniden BC-UTGC cable? I just bought the SDS100 and the GPS receiver but it came with the wrong cable. I would really like to get it working. Thanks!

Isn't that the same information that I posted 3 1/2 hours earlier in my post #9 above directly above your post #10? In addition to including the direct link to the SDS100 GPS cable at Scanner Master I even included the price and shipping information.


They moved my post and I believe I posted before you.. in my own thread
