BearTracker 885


The BearTracker 885 combines Uniden’s top-rated Bearcat CB communications technology and Uniden’s most popular scanners. Once you know what public safety issues are ahead of you, you can talk to others in that area for advice on avoiding traffic backup and other delays.

 BearTracker 885 CB Radio + DIGITAL SCANNER


The BearTracker 885 includes a database of all known public safety and DOT channels in the US and Canada. The included GPS allows the scanner to select channels in your area, wherever you are. We update the database weekly, so you can easily keep your BearTracker 885’s database up-to-date using the BT885 Update Manager. Listen to these safety channels and always be aware of what’s ahead.

The BearTracker 885 cannot receive encrypted or some proprietary types of digital systems

The scanner feature operates alongside the unit’s CB radio features. There is no switching back and forth between modes; just press a button and you’re listening to Police channels, Fire department channels, etc., while standard CB channels are active.


Like any CB radio, the BearTracker 885 opens communication between you and other travelers. This full-featured CB radio provides 40 channels, 4-Watt RF power, a 7-color display, an SWR meter for precision antenna tuning, RF Gain, Mic Gain, PA mode, Talkback, and NOAA weather channels with an Alert function. An ergonomic, noise-cancelling microphone enhances your transmissions, even in the noisy environment of a tractor-trailer cab.


The BearTracker Warning System (BWS) alerts you whenever there is nearby public safety radio traffic. The radio detects the public safety vehicle’s radio’s low-power signals and alerts you if there are signals up to about 3 to 5 miles from your location. If you are using this in a commercial vehicle, it is NOT a radar detector but a completely legal public safety service scanner.

Some states restrict the use of scanners in vehicles. Please check your local state laws for any restrictions.
