I have to state that I'm a UK bod with a UBC125XLT scanner, a country regional derivative of the base BC125AT model and for the UBC125XLT there is zero support, firmware updates, etc. Not sure how the Australian/New Zealand with their BC126 models or how the Albrecht licensed clones fair in general and firmware support.

From what I have seen and experienced then the Uniden brand and support is a lottery depending on where on the planet you are located.
Needless to say other companies (no names mentioned) are 100% on the ball in all world wide regions.

To be clear I'll just add I think my Uniden UBC125XLT scanner is a great bit of kit that works well. But if it has issues then I think it will be a "bin" job and next time round look at more world wide professional companies.

Just wanting to chime in also. I am interested in the BC125AT firmware update. Accidentally changed the firmware down to the 1.03.1 from the 1.04.1 when using the firmware update tool. I am just looking for guidance that I have updated the system so as to get the best performance from the BC125AT. Anyone have any solution?

Well I took a look at the the BC_VUP update ftp directory and for the BC125AT the last entry version was 1.03 dated back to 2012. This means/ suggests to me that Uniden do not care about existing BC125AT owners any more and versions 1.04 and 1.05 are "manufacturing only" firmware versions.

Sad. Don't think I'll ever by a Uniden product again. Seems to be a design it, build it, ship it and walk away operation after a couple of years. Get/force the customer to buy a new model instead.

It's possible the minor changes in firmware could be related to the manufacture date of the scanner. They may have made changes to support component changes in later manufacturing. Those of you with what appears to be newer or later generation firmware are you observing and changes in function or performance? Newer doesn't always mean better.
