For over 60 years, GME has been an industry leader in the RF communication technology space and is the only Australian manufacturer of UHF CB Radios and Emergency Beacon products.
Located in Sydney’s western suburbs, GME employs over 230 staff and operates from a purpose-built headquarters that houses the company’s research and development, engineering, quality assurance, manufacturing, warehousing, sales and marketing, finance and technical service functions.
GME remains a family-owned private company and is proudly 100 per cent Australian. At GME we pride ourselves on engineering and manufacturing high quality, market-leading products to suit the specific requirements of our customers.
At our stand at the Brisbane Truck Show, we will be showcasing our range of UHF CB Radios (both handheld and fixed mount), including the industry leading XRS Connect range. The XRS Connect range is an Australian made radio platform designed to be smart, adaptable and rugged.
These radios feature a professional grade speaker microphone complete with a powerful 2-watt speaker, customisable buttons and a high contrast OLED screen guaranteeing a crystal clear, anti-glare display. Enabled by Bluetooth wireless technology, XRS Connect is the clear market leader of connected UHF CB radios, with a number of unique features.
The XRS Connect range are the first ever UHF CB radios with app control, introducing new features such as creating and sharing scan lists, and instant access to the entire Australian and New Zealand commercial analogue frequency database. As with many other smart devices, XRS Connect products are software upgradable via the app, keeping your radio up to date with the latest features and technology.
On display will be the XRS-330C, XRS-370C and the new XRS-390C which is the first UHF CB radio to feature a built-in GPS receiver, offering true location awareness without relying on a smartphone to provide GPS location data. This capability is particularly useful in commercial applications where location tracking of users is required for workplace safety.
Also on the stand will be the MT610G Personal Locator Beacon. This Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is our most compact and lightweight design ever, complementing our market leading range of Emergency Beacon products.
The MT610G PLB offers an impressive seven-year battery life and a six-year warranty. Featuring a ‘Non-Hazmat’ battery pack for ease of transport, the MT610G ensures you remain safe and connected, wherever life takes you. The MT610G has been designed, engineered and manufactured in Australia, to provide the outback trucker with a GPS PLB solution that is compact, easy to use and affordable.
Featuring an integrated 72 channel GPS receiver, zero warm up time, high intensity LEDs, IP68 Ingress Protection and an inherently buoyant design, the compact size of the MT610G has not compromised the safety features included.
With only a small percentage of Australia’s land mass being covered by mobile phone reception it leaves truck drivers with limited ways to contact others in the case of an emergency, especially if they lose power to their cab. With the MT610G being designed to meet and exceed the latest international standards, and Cospas-Sarsat Class 2 certified, it ensures enhanced peace of mind for those truckers who travel in remote areas.
