Sign up for notifications regarding ship date & any additional SDS200 information we receive. We're excited to learn more too! We'll email you the moment we have any SDS200 information.

The SDS200 is the base version of the SDS100, which is the top selling and, in our opinion, the best police scanner on the market. The SDS100 came out in June of 2018 and a base version is finally here (almost). While we're still gathering details on the SDS200, it should have all the same great features of SDS100 including color interface & simulcast capabilities. Once we get a model to test drive we'll post specs, our opinion, and create demo videos, but for now the press release (below) is all we know. We're scanner fans too and we can't wait to get our hands on this model! Much like the SDS100 lauch, there is a limited supply and we (and all vendors) will sell out. We highly recommend buying your SDS200 today to ensure you don't have to wait a few months for batch 2 to come out.



If you buy today - you are guaranteed to have your SDS200 from batch 1. Once our stock is sold out we will post this info here - so no need to double check before placing order. If you're reading these words you will get your scanner.

Exact Ship Date?

Uniden told us end of January and that is 100% of the information we have. Sign up to be notified the moment we have additional information.

First to Ship?

There are only a few vendors of police scanners and we all buy from Uniden. Historically, we all receive stock on the same day. We process orders in the order they are received and we’ll ship the 1st day possible. Since the launch of the SDS100 in June of 2018, we have moved to a larger warehouse, brought on additional staff, and we’ll bring on a few more warehouse workers the week of this launch to ensure we ship ASAP. All orders ship free via USPS from our Minnepolis warehouse and we do not offer expedited shipping. View USPS shipping map for exact times but most will recieve in 1-3 days and we will provide tracking information once availble so you can follow progress. We require a signature on all shipments to prevent theft so be sure to ship to somewhere that your SDS200 can be signed for.

Priced $699.99?

All vendors have a floor price of $699.99, so you will not find the SDS200 cheaper elsewhere—this is the lowest possible price. In addition to getting rock-bottom-pricing, we charge $0 taxes, offer free shipping, and provide lifetime tech support.

Programming & Software Timing?

Adding programming and/or software upgrades may add to ship time. This takes our staff time to ensure your scanner is set up correctly. We will process orders in the order they are received, so the sooner you order the better.

SDS200 Tech Specs?

The SDS200 is the base version of the extremely popular SDS100 and they will operate almost exactly the same so if you're looking for a bit more info, the SDS100 product page is a great place to start. Below is the press release from Uniden regarding the SDS200—which is all we know. When additional information rolls in we’ll post it to this page.

Charge and Refunds?

Your card is charged once your order is placed. You can get a full refund at any time for any reason up until your scaner ships. Once your order ships our standard refund policy applies.

Software Upgrades?

Chat with a scanner expert to see if you need these any or all software upgrades in your area - this is confusing and we can look up in a few minutes. If you purchase any software upgrades with yoru SDS200 our experts will install upgrades so your SDS200 will be all set up when it arrives. You can do on your own for less by buying upgrades directly from Uniden once you receive your scanner.

Police Scanner Programming FAQ

What is 'One Touch Start Up'?

Adding this with programming allows our technicians to make hardware, software & frequency updates prior to shipping your scanner. You can buy only the programming which will give you everything needed to listen in your area but 'one touch start up' ensures a smooth experience right from the start with zero technical know-how. 'One touch start up' is popular with gifts as this allows the scanner to simply 'work' by powering on.


How long does this take?

Programming adds 1-2 additional business days to delivery.


What if this does not work?

We have a 100% money back guarantee if you’re not happy with your programming.


How are you so much cheaper than other scanner programming places?

We’re awesome.


Can you program X, Y, Z?

We can program anything that is in Radio Reference. If you have frequencies that are not in Radio Reference, as long as you can put them in a CSV file, we can program them.


What if I need help?

We’re always here to help.


Can I programming this scanner myself?

We created a programming decision tree as well as programming videos (above) to help you decided on whether you should include professional programming with your scanner but we HIGHLY recommend adding programming.


Can't I just punch in my zip code for programming?

When you type in your zip code, it scans EVERYTHING in your area, which is kinda like getting the phone book thrown at you. This is why over 95% of orders include programming & why we highly recommend. Our professional programming filters the junk out so you don't have to listen to things such as the dog catcher, repo guy, power company & such.


How long does programming take?

It takes our scanner tech over an hour to program each scanner & this is ALL he does. For new & moderate scanner users we estimate 3-12 hours of programming. Setup time varies wildly based on scanner, area as well as scanner & general tech familiarity.


Why should I buy programming?

Programming is the #1 reason police scanners are returned. While scanner programming is much easier than the days of crystal scanners, there is a learning curve like any other electronics purchase. While some scanner enthusiasts are highly technical and want to learn the ins and outs of programming, others want their scanner to just ‘work’ right out of the box. 95% of all scanner sales include programming, so unless you’re familiar with scanners, scanner terminology, own a PC (Mac’s do not work), and want to learn the nuances of programming, we highly recommend having your scanner professionally programmed. Scanner technology is fairly user friendly, but scanners are not smartphones or iPads. If you're spending hundreds on a scanner; we recommend springing a few extra bucks so it works right out of the box.


Can't you teach me programming with your lifetime technical support?

No. Lifetime technical support is not unlimited technical support. We are always here to help, love to do so. We made how to videos and can help point you in the right direction, but we will not teach programming.


Can't you teach me programming with your lifetime technical support?
