With the silly season upon us, daydreams of endless beach runs and perfect campsites are at an all year high. This is it, the pointy end of the year and the best time to cash in some brownie points and get out there on the tracks.

There’s nothing better than cruising in convoy with a couple of mates, with the banter flowing freely over the airwaves. Trading info and lame jokes over the UHF is one of the cornerstones of the 4WDing experience.  

It’s amazing how far the tech has progressed in the radio world in recent years, with innovators like GME constantly adding new features to their UHF radios. Speaking of which, if you happen to be in the market for a new communication system for your rig, there’s still a couple of days before Christmas morning to sneak a shiny new GME radio under the tree!

GME’s flagship XRS units are smart and adaptable. They’re Bluetooth equipped and the XRS Connect app allows your radio and smartphone to sync up for a better communication experience. The app allows your radio’s software to be upgraded using your phone’s internet connection.

If you’re looking for a little inspiration, check out the XRS-370CSP Spotter Pack, which includes an XRS-370C fixed unit for your rig, plus a handheld TX665 UHF for your spotter.

If flexibility is your number one priority, the XRS-330CP Portable Pack might be right up your beach run. This setup includes a premium XRS-330CP UHF radio plus a suction cup mount, 12V accessory lead, 2.1 dBi magnetic antenna and all the necessary mounting hardware.

Go on, treat yo’ self!
