Changing Your SD Card

Thank you for sharing that information! Replacing the SD card in your Homepatrol series scanner is a straightforward process. Here are the steps:

  1. Power Off: Please ensure your scanner is turned off before proceeding.
  2. Access the SD Card Slot:
    • Locate the SD card slot on your scanner. It’s usually on the front or underneath the battery.
  3. Remove the Old SD Card:
    • Gently push in the existing SD card to release it.
    • Carefully pull it out once it pops out slightly.
  4. Insert the New SD Card:
    • Take your new SD card (make sure it’s compatible with your scanner) and insert it into the slot.
    • Push it in until it clicks into place.
  5. Power On and Test:
    • Turn on your scanner to ensure it recognizes the new SD card.

Regarding programming options:

  • Mail-In Programming: If you prefer, you can send your scanner to Bearcat Warehouse for programming. They’ll set it up for you and send it back.
  • Programmed SD Card: If your radio is compatible, you can purchase a pre-programmed SD card from Bearcat Warehouse. Just insert the card, and you’re ready to go!

Remember to consult your scanner’s manual for specific details related to SD card replacement. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask! 📻👍
