What experts liked
It offers GPS based tracking, a feature that automatically scans for stations based on your GPS location.
- Car Care Total
What I like about the BCT15X scanner is that it comes with a 100 quick key system and each group provided with a number set to one of the keys and easily pressed to activate or deactivate the group and helps when monitoring systems assigned to them.
- CB Radio Review
What experts didn't like
It's an analog scanner, so it can't handle digital signals.
- Car Care Total
I found no problems while using the Uniden BCT15X although many complained the scanner is ugly and difficult to program.
