Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

There’s even a Wi-Fi option that allows you to use the exclusive Uniden siren app on your smartphone or tablet to access the scanner from anywhere in the home or vehicle.
We have to praise the multitude of functional and helpful features. Especially the large frequency coverage, weather alert system, and the fact you hear what’s being transmitted closest to you.
It offers a microSD slot with 4GB of storage, which is enough to hold the entire radio systems of both the United States and Canada. It even has some remaining space for hundreds of hours of recordings.
With all the available features offered for those you can use and will be using in the near future makes this one of the best CB radios available on the market at the present moment.

What reviewers didn't like

The problems arise when we’re talking about innovative promises Uniden makes: wi-fi, an app, using your phone to hear what’s being transmitted by the scanner. These would be wonderful additions, but in some cases (the wi-fi functionality) rarely works, and the app we’re promised is buggy and hard to use.
It's not cheap but it packs lots of features.
The majority of complaints are all the features that are not available to use, but think of it this way by the time they have all these features in place you already have an updated CB radio that handles all those functions.
