GME XRS CONNECT AUSSIE4X4TOURING REVIEW
With so many options and functions that the GME XRS connect comes with it makes us wonder where do we start.
XRS connect is the first ever UHF CB radio with mobile app controlled functions and introduces new features such as creating and sharing scan lists, software upgradable via the app, keeping you up to date with the latest features and technology.
The new XRS Connect professional grade speaker microphone features a powerful 2 watt speaker, customisable buttons and a high contrast OLED screen showing off the amazing anti-glare display.
Designed and manufactured in Australia is why we have been using GME products for over 8 years now and with every vehicle we have had GME has been the go to product for us every time, and always will be our go to for our communication needs.
Both myself Blake, and Garth have recently fitted a 80 channel UHF CB XRS Connect 330c, which keeps us perfectly in contact with clean communication every time we head out looking for tracks or even out on the long stretch heading to our next destination. Communication for us is one huge factor we take on board while traveling to be honest it should be a must for everyone.
The XRS Connect 330c are matched to ALL TERRAIN AE4700 series aerials from a 6.6dBi and a 2.1dBi, which we will get into more detail soon. I must say it really has blown us away with how well GME have designed and built such an amazing UHF CB radio such as the XRS Connect.
Installation time (30 mins - 45 mins).
As always setup is an absolute breeze with GME products, Even better the XRS Connect system is so compact its now hidden away behind the dash board and only left with the beautifully designed hand held microphone with the screen display and buttons at fingertip reach to gain all the functions that the XRS provides.
Bluetooth connection ?
That’s right your Android or iOS (iPhone) now connects to your XRS to open up a whole new world of communication via the new GME XRS APP that you can easily download free from the google play store or App Store. The app allows you to connect with others and share your location via the mobile device's GPS location. For example if you are already on the tracks or bogged and your mates can't find you turn the app on and talk via the XRS system and your mates will be able to pin point your location as long as they also have a XRS Connect fitted and have the app running.
If you are thinking about getting an XRS Connect for your vehicle we highly recommend it you wont look back after upgrading your communication experience.From an easy to use app that is compatible with most smart phones and tablets on the market so you can use your phone or tablet as a second radio screen, While reaching up to 400 different frequencies on your 8 scan list that you can save on the GME XRS Connect app and can be shared with other XRS radio users.

Times have changed since the original CB radio and GME have taken the lead in communication. Since the late 50’when Standard Components was founded the company has evolved and invested in research and development so that by 2006 the company was known as GME (Greenwich Marine Electronics).What does that mean for us as users of GME products?A top of the line Australian designed and made UHF CB radio that isn’t going to let you down when you need it.
