Australian-owned manufacturer of leading communication technology, GME, has today launched its Australian made XRS-660 Handheld UHF CB Radio – a life-saving piece of tech that will help Aussies stay in touch, even in mobile phone black spot areas. 

With only 27% of the Australian landmass covered by mobile phone reception, it’s important Aussies pack the right tech to keep themselves safe and connected while they explore the Great Outdoors. 

Colourful TFT LCD Screen, a handheld UHF CB first!

The XRS-660 is the first of its kind, with built-in GPS functionality ensuring true location awareness without relying on a smartphone to provide location data, making it perfect for new and existing campers, hikers, 4WDers, and those who work in regional and remote areas. 

The device offers several exciting new features: 

  • The first Handheld UHF CB Radio to feature a Colour TFT LCD screen, providing the ultimate Handheld radio display for all environmental conditions – even in full sunlight.
  • Bluetooth audio connectivity allows the XRS-660 to wirelessly connect to an extensive range of third-party audio accessories, providing users with new and improved ways to stay connected.
  • Rugged IP67 Ingress Protection and a MIL-STD810G rating makes the XRS-660 the toughest and most advanced Handheld UHF CB Radio yet. 

GPS Tracking, new to the XRS range!

Building on the market-leading innovation of GME’s popular range of XRS Connect UHF CB radios, Australians can now have total peace of mind knowing they can communicate with their fellow travellers or workers all while their live location is visible, without mobile phone service.”
