Excellent Low Cost Radio with Excellent Up to Date Features and Technology

Conclusion: This is an excellent radio whether you use the Blue Tooth version or not. I have been using it for road trips and temporarily installed using lighter plug extensions and a neatly tucked away antenna cable.
Summary: Cobra could really improve the microphone quality, but it's minimal impact. This will by my second 29LX. My 29 LXLE was stolen.
Pros: Finally! A Cobra radio with talkback! After a quick tune up, this radio swings 15 watt deadkey no problem. ~25 watts transmit. Considering that you can check the firmware, it looks like there may be updates at some point. Would be nice to see side band added.
Cons: Standard Cobra mic boxed with it. This mic is almost worthless. Get yourself a nice power mic to go with it.
Summary: The first thing that struck me when i opened the box was the size of this thing. it is huge! same case size (probably the same case actually) as the old Cobra 148GTLDX that i had back in the 80's. IT DOESNT FIT IN A DIN SLOT!!!
