Product Description



The Uniden BearTracker 885 is 40 channel CB radio plus digital TrunkTracking scanner receiver. Enjoy the convenience of a top quality CB and keep up-to-date with current public safety activity anywhere in the US and Canada by scanning for police, fire, ambulance, and/or DOT radio traffic. And do not worry about changing scanner programming as you drive. The included GPS allows the BearTracker 885 to automatically select nearby channels from its nationwide database! The database includes known analog and digital channels, so all you have to do is drive and listen! Scan system includes conventional analog, Motorola, LTR, EDACS, APCO P25 Phase I and Phase II with coverage of VHF, UHF and the 700/800 MHz bands. The CB portion includes all 40 channels, at the full legal 4 watts. You will get the BearTracker Warning System that alerts you when nearby public safety transmissions are detected. CB enhancements include: 7 color display, SWR meter, RF Gain, NOAA weather alert, PA (public address), antenna check, vehicle power check, noise-canceling microphone, CB/Scan priority selection, priority channel and scanning. The rear panel features an SO-239 jack for the CB antenna, and a BNC for the scanner antenna. Antennas sold separately


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.




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.
