GME ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF NEW XRS™ CONNECT UHF RADIOS

Xrs GroupXRS™ Connect is an evolution in UHF CB communications and is the first connected radio of its kind. Each radio incorporates Bluetooth Smart® low energy technology to enable connectivity to most iOS, Android and Windows PCs enabling new and never before seen features and functionality.

“XRS™ Connect is truly a quantum leap in CB Radio communications, a platform developed by GME’s in house engineering team. Its arrival heralds a new era in CB radio and smart device interconnectivity, and as a leading Australian technology company, we are proud to bring this innovation to market” says Warwick Clancy, Managing Director Standard Communications Pty Ltd.

One of the many unique aspects to the development of these radios is the introduction of the new XRS™ Connect App, downloadable for free via the App Store or Google Play. The intuitive user interface of the XRS™ Connect App combines easy to navigate menus and icons using the familiar technology of a smart device to control all of the features and settings of the radio. This app also enables you to create and share personalised scan lists from a library of over 20,000 pre-loaded Australian and New Zealand frequencies, categorised into groups such as Fire, Volunteer Rescue and Police. This allows you to monitor any registered frequency within range of your UHF radio. The GPS location service in your phone can also be used to help identify local frequencies; this is particularly useful when you’re on the go or in an unfamiliar region.

Complementing the radio is a newly developed professional grade speaker microphone, featuring customisable buttons, a powerful 2 watt front facing speaker plus an industry first OLED display with 180˚ viewing angle guaranteeing crystal clear day or night use. Finally this new generation of radios sees the introduction of the unique XRS™ high speed scanning software algorithm, delivering a scan speed over twice as fast as any other CB radio on the market today.

Mr Clancy concluded, “GME is delighted to introduce the XRS™ concept, a product designed to radically advance the utility of UHF CB communications. We believe the market has been crying out for such innovation for some time; the smart, future proof and rugged XRS™ series is destined to set a new benchmark in connectable UHF radio”.
