        Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

        Previously picked up Norfolk Va police, but have been unable to for the last 3 months. Have NEVER picked up tax from Virginia Beach Va despite running updates every other day. The premise of putting in the zip code is a farce. I can get Chesapeake Va and Portsmouth Va loud and clear using 234XX or 235XX. Very unhappy with my purchase. I now have to use the Police Scanner App on my iPad. Wasted my money. Virtually Impossible to contact Uniden by phone or email.

                      I bought this scanner the end of Nov. I have had it back to Radio Shack 4 times. to get them to help me. when we bought it , it sounded great but yet has done what we was told. I took it back Dec. 5th. not long after it was bought. we was told it would pick up our city and county, its digital gave over 450 dollars. not happy at all, took it back for the 4th time last night, they say they done this and that try again. its still not picking up city.

                      very poor reception and sound

                      Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

                      Very poor reception of signals. Many times will show carrier on screen for several minutes but have no audio. Will have no city transmissions for as long as 6 hours at a time. We all wish our community was that safe! Took it on patrol with me and it missed numerous calls that came over city radio. Sound is very poor quality, hard to understand many times. Had it back to R.S. several times and also back to Texas with no improvement. Right now to me it is a piece of junk. Will never purchase Uniden products again.

                      Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

                      My region is beginning the "digital age", they will be converting over very soon, hence the purchase of the Home Patrol. I have had mine now for 4 days. A few minor gripes, to what otherwise is an excellent product: 1. Would be nice to allow direct entry programming of frequencies into the unit in a favorites category. 2. Priority capabilities would be nice as well. 3. I am in Virginia, Eastern Time Zone, the unit when set to this will not let me pick up my local frequencies. Reset it to the default Central Time Zone works w/o problems. 4. When I entered my zip code, and also entered the city that I live in, all of the surrounding agencies were readily available and working but not the city I live in, I had to set up a favorite list to pick up the city frequencies. Other than those minor problems, I think Uniden has really come out with a superb product. I have and will recommend HomePatrol-1.

                      Almost perfect

                      from Tulsa, OK, USA

                      Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

                      Ok, I have had a scanner on me or in my vehicle since 2007, this scanner solves most if not all of my problems that I would have with a conventional type scanner. The ease of use with the touchscreen is worth it, even if you do not like touchscreens, out of the box it will give you the tactile touch of a button when you press on the screen. I love my radioshack scanners for the fact that they mount into jotto desk/troy/havis consoles but this scanner is worth not having that feature. In the past, If I wanted to do a cross country trip and listen to the police/fire/ems I would have to program my scanner everytime I move 100 miles. With the massive database that it contains, you know exactly who is talking, in what state, city, county, and frequency system. With a gps unit attached, the database will adjust to where you are and provide the appropriate radio traffic for your area. This alone is worth paying the money for this scanner. However the GPS attachment port would be much better if it had a screw attachment to hold the gps cable in place (think like what panasonic toughbooks use to hold their cables in place). Lastly, I recommend using a RAM mount to mount your scanner anywhere in your vehicle. I have not seen any other manufacturer that makes mounts for them.
