One thing that happened when I bought mine was that I had the Bear Tracker on so every few seconds as I was listening to a transmission, it would pause out for a half a second, and I personally did not like it, so I turned Bear Tracker off for smooth and easy listening. This may be something you may not mind, and therefore may not be a problem for you, but I know for me, I did not like it at all.
Although I know that Uniden intended this as an upscale BCT 8, I think the Bear Tracker thing is silly. However, other than that it's a great non digital scanner. The only consistent problem that I've heard of is related to the keypad and the display. There is a sticky regarding that on this forum, so I won't recount it here.
I will keep and eye on the display. since it will be going into my truck this would be a major issue to watch out for. hopefully uniden has been informed about this problem and has devised a method for fixing it. :roll:
I agree with Warrior: this would be a better feature if you could edit the freqs in the beartracker system.
