Spare programming cable?

Does anyone have a spare programming 
cable for a BC250D that they would 
consider selling?

Please reply direct.

If you have come here to find out about the 250D you have come to the right place! In fact the discussion of the
BC-250D and how it works is the only acceptable topic on this list. Any discussion about anything other
than the BC-250D is OFF TOPIC. I hope this is clear to all group members..

Programming cable questions

Question 1.

Can anyone tell me if they have a 
BC250D that accepts a standard DB9
connector cable?

The reason for asking is that I
recently purchased a programming
software package and cable. But 
the cable supplied is a standard 
DB9 pin connector. 

The manufacturer says that "I must
have a new design". If that is true
then there must be 250D's around 
that use this standard connector?

Are there?

Question 2. 

Does anyone know of a source for the
connector used on the current BC250D?

Re: Programming cable questions

The 245, 250, and 296 all use a DB9 on end and a mini USB (I think) on the other.  If they sent you a cable with DB9
connectors on each end, they are thinking of the mobile scanners which use that cable. OTOH, the 250 comes
with the correct cable, so I'm not sure why you need another one.

Re: Programming cable questions

I bought a used one that didn't come with a cable ;-))

Didn't know what the mini connector type was known as.

Thanks

The standard cable that comes with the scanner is a DB9 female on the 
computer end and the mini proprietary connector on the scanner end.  All 
BC250Ds use the same cable.  The BC785D does use a DB9 on the scanner 
end as well,  but doesn't come with a cable.

Apparently the place you bought your software/cable sent you the package 
for the BC785D instead of the BC250D.  Your BC250D should have come with 
the a computer interface cable, unless you got it used or something.

Re: Programming cable questions

A search of the Uniden web site for information on the cable and the reply was:

"f you have a handheld scanner, please contact Uniden Parts department, at 
800-554-3988."

Re: Programming cable questions

Andrew,
"Apparently the place you bought your software/cable sent you 
the package for the BC785D instead of the BC250D."

That's what I thought as well but they contend that both 
used the same cable at sometime and that my 250D must be
a later model. I figured that this was baloney but not 
beig familiar with the 250D since the beginning thought
I'd ask.

That's why I'm a little perplexed as it was advertized on 
their website as including cable. I don't think that he is 
giving me the run around (yet) but wanted to check it out first.
He appears to be under the impression that both models use DB9 
cables. My suspicion is that since every new 250D comes with a 
cable, the subject may not have come up before. It's possible 
that I'm one of the first people to attempt to order a 250D
cable. 

I wanted to see if there was a DB9 model out there but didn't 
think it was very probable.

Thanks

Dan

Re: Programming cable questions

On the Uniden support site, the cable for the BC 250 and BC296 is part # 
BWZY1448001 ($15.92), but is out of stock.
Also a picture of the cable.
