    Default Best scanner in your opinion.....

    I'm looking to buy a scanner to go with my week old 8500x50. I just got it last Friday and haven't really tried it yet, just some short driving.

    Now due to a completly bogus tickets by VASCAR, I would like to also purchase a really high end scanner if anyone thinks it will help.

    History, not a fast driver, but I do alot of summer traveling from PA to NJ (Atlantic City to see family) if that helps anyone with suggestions.

    Thanks, I'm really new at this but really ticked about the ticket.

    All help appreciated...any recommendation helpful of any kind.

    No chances for me......and my wife always commented on how I was a pokey driver, it was a bogus tick.

    If you are looking to get a scanner to help avoid tickets, I recommend the Unden Beartracker BCT-8. There are "better" scanners out there though, depending on how you plan to use it etc etc...

    I have the BCT-8 and it has helped me out. I dont have to deal with VASCAR here so I wouldnt know about that one to much. Its a great scanner, I have nothing to compare it with since it is my 1st one. If you have any questions about it, shoot em to me, ill be more than happy to help you out

    Default Pro 96

    Albeit expensive, the Pro-96 is more sensitive and digital capable than its next best cousin bc246t. The uniden is not digital and the sensitivity issue is mute with a decent antenna.

    It is a very nice small compact unit and a permanent install which is good. But what do you used for an antenna if you have a Corvette? :shock:

    bc246t is a great scanner in that area especially with a Radio Shack 800MHz antenna...but is they switch to digital you will have to upgrade

    I just bought the Uniden BCD396T but kind of regret the fact that i did not buy the BC296D since I had the BC250D and am familiar with that scanner
