Uniden has released the XTRAK 50, a UHF handheld radio that can be turned into an in-vehicle radio, with features for communicating while on the road or in remote locations.

The waterproof XTRAK 50 transitions easily from portable use to an in-vehicle hands-free device when accompanied by the Uniden ACCX50 car kit, with its charger, magnetic mount bracket and magnetic antenna that sits on top of the vehicle. This flexibility also enables the radio to be used between vehicles.

The accessory instantly enhances accessibility and stability with an Australian-first one-touch instant replay button feature on a handheld UHF radio. This records and replays up to four minutes of recent messages and avoids missing transmissions in noisy environments with the ability to listen to communications received up to six minutes prior. Away from the vehicle, the XTRAK 50 is a compact companion to keep users in touch in the outdoors with a range up to 17km.

The radio provides 5-watt power, 80 UHF channels and a smart key to toggle between instant channel, monitor, call tone or equaliser. The long-life battery comes with 30-hour standby time.

The Uniden XTRAK 50 and Uniden ACCX50 car kit are available for RRP $329.95 and $129.95 respectively.
