Beartracker 885 includes emergency scanner

Updated Nov 26, 2017

For many truckers, a good CB radio is indispensable to staying out of any trouble that may occur on the highway.

Uniden’s Beartracker 885 does that and more. Not only is it a pro-level, 40-channel CB, but it’s paired with a digital scanner and the BearTracker Warning System. It scans local emergency radio traffic — police, fire, ambulance — to keep you aware of any mishaps. (Be aware that some jurisdictions do not allow mobile scanners, so be sure to check yours.)
