A good reliable Radio
I have had 1 for a number of years and found it to be very reliable as I have never had a problem with it. Over the years I have had numerous GME Products and have found them to be very good and recommend others to buy them. I would consider GME Products as the best value for money on the current market.
great uhf radio
had this unit for some time now and found it faultless. Clear and easy to understand and so typical of the brand which I have used for years. Also have a GME VHF in my boat, great unit also. I have fitted an external mic as I am a little on the deaf side and this makes things even better as it come through my left good ear!!
Works well, reliable and sufficiently powerful. The microphone feels very cheap, and at times feels as though it's going to break. My unit is older and cannot be upgraded to 80 channels. Benefits from an extended speaker to improve sound quality.
I like the fact that you can flip the display, so it gives more mounting options.
Fantastic little unit.
This radio has been right round Australia with me on my Nissan X-Trail. It's so easy to set up and use. For someone just looking for an uncomplicated means of UHF communication, it's perfect. I got mine in the combo pack with the antenna included, which was very convenient and cheaper than buying it separately.
Great radio very easy to mount. I have mounted the aerial in the centre of the dash and this works OK for now. I will look into mounting an external antenna later. I would recommend this little radio to anyone who needs to mount a radio and who does not like drilling into the dash.
Great things come in small packages
The GME3100 is a great radio, small compact and powerful I have one in my BMW X5 and one in the patrol, easy to fit, clear audio and excellent signal however all radio performance depends on the antenna you choose. I opted for this one off ebay. [link removed] I have one of these on both vehicles and get great reception.
Perfect size, everything you need!
I bought this unit because it would fit in the ash tray slot of my Hilux. As an added bonus, it's the cheapest GME unit on the market!
Looks schmick installed in the ash tray slot, no wires visible. I was worried about the speaker being hidden inside the dash but it actually sounds really good.
Best of both words
Purchased this car unit in a hurry when half way through a 6 week caravanning trip with some other grey nomads. My original purchase (Digitech 1065) was a complete failure. The GME is Aust made and sits half way between having a cheap hand held unit and the more elaborate 5 watt incar units. As the name suggests you plug it into the 12 v outlet. Its a small unit (about the size of two cigarette packs) but is 5 watts and comes with a separate mic and 3 inch aerial which i sit on the dash using tape. Its magnetized and will travel nicely on the r...oof if that's the preferred option for you and you will get better reception here as well. I like it because i can avoid having a one metre aerial sitting on the bull bar right in front of the passenger and i can now talk and receive clearly even when the other car is up around the bend out of sight (within reason). It cost me about $280 from a really good guy in Whyalla who sells this sort of stuff from his house. He sells to mines and the like and seems to know his stuff. Big unit features in a little unit lots of long wires

Bit of a mystery this one, sounds electrical interference. Not had similar problems in my D Max, sometimes all sorts of problems associated with second battery wiring. Just bought a GME 4500s, brilliant. Regards Peter aka THe Bear
