Uniden SDS200 Now Shipping

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! While we're still learning about the SDS200, it has all of the same great features of SDS100, including color interface & simulcast capabilities.We have stacks of these puppies and we can't wait for you to claim yours! We'll post all the specs, give our opinion, and make demo videos. We're scanner fans too and we're ecstatic to have this model in our hands and in our warehouse! Much like the SDS100 launch, 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.

FAQ

Stock?

If you buy today, your SDS200 ships today. We will update this page the second we sell out, so no need to double check before placing your order.

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.

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. Most of the tech specs are included in the "Specifics & Compare" tab. When additional information rolls in we’ll post it to this page.

GPS?

The Uniden GPS & Cable for the SDS200 is currently on back order until the end of the month.

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 it up in a few minutes. If you purchase any software upgrades with your SDS200, our experts will install the upgrades so your SDS200 will be all set up when it arrives. You can do it on your own for less by buying upgrades directly from Uniden once you receive your scanner.

Buyers Say

› Does not have WiFi, but it does have Ethernet—which is more reliable than WiFi.
› Looks great installed in the dash of vehicles and comes with mounting gear.
› No built in GPS (must buy GPS device).
› Ethernet connectivity for remote streaming and control.
› Uniden Siren App is hit or miss with the LAN cable. Poor audio and delayed feed.

Programming

The new Uniden SDS200 comes with Sentinel software like other Uniden scanners including 436, 536 & HP2. While there is a version of Sentinel Software for each scanner, they operate the same. The SDS200 includes Sentinel Software (download free SDS200 software here).

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.

Nice upgrade to my 536hpReview by john
Review Rating
I am a full time nerd, I need the latest in nerdy things.
Bingo this is a 536hp with a much better screen and a redesigned button layout, the function knob is better than the 536hp and makes entering keys less frustrating. Close call was moved from the one button press of the SQ button on the 536hp to the function knob then left function button on the sds200 no big deal. ethernet much better than the 536hp wifi dongle that was a mess and entering wifi was just a pain.
I do not know yet if it has the same file limitation that the 536hp has in regards to the number of file directories it can make before it crashes as I have not had it recording for any amount of time
Over all I like it, nothing on it is not an improvement over the 536.
I wish so much the direct competition would make something with the nice interface this has, but at this point in time its the best sub 2k scanner you can get, imho.
