• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

It Looks great and there are probably 2 or 3 in my future this year that I will be purchasing. One question though why didn't you keep the Wifi from 536HP line? My favorite feature of my 536 was being able to log and record over wifi using proscan. Also why is the LAN connection on the front of the unit that would have looked much better in back with the extension speaker jack on the back of the unit other than that it looks awesome.

I guess my only other questions would be when will it be available? And how much will it cost?

I really hope there's additional LAN and USB-A connectors at the back. You don't want those cables sticking out from the front panel. Maybe the USB-A will be compatible with any USB GPS antenna?
The Vol and SQ controls have traded places compared to other Uniden scanner. It is more logical now so probably a good thing. Menu button gone and replaced by the SQ knob click that used to be display backlight. I don't see any light detector photocell that controls backlight and contrast as in any other advanced display device for a car. Too bad as that are so easy to implement.

The lack of any mention of it having WiFi capability is disappointing. Frankly, that's one of the best features of the 536.

I'm also baffled by the idea of putting the USB A and Ethernet ports on the front of this thing, when there is a ton of empty space on the back panel.

The price is in line with what I expected to see, so that's good. Looks like it implements a "one cord solution" for GPS, which I like as well. No remote head is mentioned, which is disappointing. However, looks like we may see an add-on accessory at a later date. I would have preferred a detachable faceplate/remote head, but a separate purchase remote head (should that be offered) isn't a bad alternative.

Maybe that addon will be an ethernet remote head like a Flex radio and Maestro.
