Introducing XRS™ Connect Location Services – a new era for UHF CB radio.
Location & Status
XRS™ Connect Location Services enables users to send, receive and display GPS location with each transmission. Combining the power of XRS™ with the GPS engine and display of a smartphone or tablet, enabled by Bluetooth® Smart technology, XRS™ Connect Location Services creates a whole new world of possibilities for UHF CB radio. Users are also able to send, receive and display a short text ‘status’ on the tail of transmissions, selecting from either pre-defined or user-defined statuses, up to 32 characters.
XRS™ Connect Location Services offers offline map caching, giving users the option to download* and store detailed maps - ensuring accurate map display in areas with no cellular coverage. A welcome inclusion for off-road 4WD adventures, long distance touring and remote workers.
Points of Interest
XRS™ Connect Location Services enables users to log and save an unlimited number of points of interest using the intuitive user interface - perfect for asset mapping on large properties and revisiting those ‘secret’ spots in the 4WD.
Contacts & Groups
XRS™ Connect Location Services displays the user-designated ID or ‘tag’ of each XRS™ radio within transmission range, allowing easy identification and tracking of multiple users. Create custom groups to easily manage contacts and filter display results.
XRS™ Connect Location Services enables the firmware of the XRS™ radio to be upgraded using a smartphone or tablet*. Receive notification of new features and enhancements, updated regularly at no additional cost.
*Internet connection required. Data charges may apply

Ratings and Reviews
Love this addition to the XRS. Having the ability to pre download maps and save them for
Offline use is genius. Hardly get any reception when I’m out and about so it’s great to have access to it.
Being able to find another XRS user is great because all my mates have these units.
Maps without mobile coverage
Cool app, enables you to have maps and exchange status messages with other XRS uses in remote areas with no phone coverage. Works on a tablet with WiFi.
Waste of time.
Not really worth taking up space on your phone for this. So much hype from GME and such a let down. It has maps but can’t be used for navigation. Basically it’s a primitive form of social media that lets you send status updates to other people with XRS radios. Thumbs Down.
