    Default From Uniden Australia

    Whilst poking around on the net, i found a couple of interesting products that Uniden has to offer in Australia. First being a combintion CB/Scanner with a remote mount face. Seems to be a damn good idea, especially with how limited mounting space is in today's vehicles. Here is a pic of said unit:


    However it doesn't seem to be available in the US of A. Would be interesting if they made a unit for us that included a Beartracker with it. At least i think so.

    Next up from Uniden is a GPS/CB unit.


    Description of which being:

    Key Features
    GPS Transceiver Features*:
    Send, Receive and Navigate your Position with GPS Caller ID:
    - Compass guidance to Caller
    - Distance and Time to reach Caller
    20 Caller ID Memories
    City/Suburb Navigation:
    - Compass Guidance to City or Suburb
    - Distance and Time to reach City or Suburb
    User Marked Location Navigation:
    - Compass Guidance to User Marked Location
    - Distance and Time to User marked Location
    Flash Memory for Software Updates and Upgrades
    Latitude/ Longitude/Altitude Display
    500 User Marked Locations with Alpha Tag
    * To benefit from these features, transmission needs to be with another compatible Uniden GPS product including the GPS105 or the GPS205

    UHF CB Transceiver Features:
    40 UHF Channels
    Mobile/DIN Size
    5 Watt Maximum TX Output Power
    CTCSS Interference Eliminator
    Front Fire Speaker
    Range Extender (Duplex) Capability
    Backlit Keypad and LCD Display

    Trip Computer:

    Record Maximum Speed
    Calculate Estimated Time to Reach Destination
    Built-in Compass and GPS Co-ordinates

    They both look to be very interesting. Would any one happen to know if they plan on bringing similar units to the US?

    I emailed Uniden USA in regards to said item, and received no reply as of yet. So no idea as to whether or not they plan to offer it here. Although I personally think it would be a great idea--especially if they made it a bear tracker unit.

    I also emailed a couple of stores in Aus that sell it, but none will ship overseas. No surprise there really.

    Maybe a few will find there way onto Ebay in the future, and then we can get our hands on them.

    Thats right---I never even thought of that.

    Just as soon as I budget out more $$$ for toys, I most surely will.
