Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement battery cover?? Since its a discontinued model,uniden doesnt carry them and I have tried a few websites that carry scanners with no luck?!! Also can you use the digital card from a 296d in the 250d??

It would appear you can use the BCi96D digital card in a 250d instead of the BCi25D (same card). However, the 250d will not track 9600 baud systems, only 3600 baud systems, but it would decode any individual P25 channel minus the trunk tracking part with 9600 systems.

Thanks chewmeister. I was told it wouldnt work and that it might ruin the scanner. it seemed to fit the slot when I put the 296d card in so instead of buying a 250d card at 100.00 I figured I would try this. The only place that seemed to list the battery cover was cei for 24.95??? Seems VERY pricy since I can buy a replacement for the 245xlt scanner for 4.00!!!!!!!!

Sure,just pm me and we will exchange info. its in great shape and works well. I am retaining the card for the 250d. I find the 250d to perform better on my adjacent county. they run a motorola mixed mode 800 smartzone system and tracks it flawlessly. The digital portion is not great since you have to play with the sound adjustments BUT analog traffic sounds great!! It even outperforms my psr500!!??
