Hello All!

I just purchased a Uniden BCD996P2 and I have what is the first of what will probably be many questions. I read on the forum that I could change the P25 threshold to manual setting. However, when I turn the scanner back on the changes did not hold. Also, I changed the display to show the error rate. This resets as well.

Am I missing a step or is this the way it works.

Thanks!

I know on mine the threshold doesn't change when i turn unit on and off. had to read the manual on how to get to it. didn't do anything but set it and it stays.

Some Help, Anyway

JSB,
To have the threshold setting persist, you need to update the firmware in your scanner. See the third "Sticky" from the top of this subforum. It's simple: the entire process as described took me about five minutes and now the 996P2 retains the setting I enter.
As far as I can tell, there's no way to have the display setting to show error rate persist when you turn the scanner off and back on.
