We bought this uhf radio for our 4wd

We bought this radio for our 4wd and it works really good haven’t had a problem with it until now. The problem is with the cord for the microphone where the outer part of the cord has perished. I phoned oricom and a replacement has been sent out the lady I spoke to was very helpful and sorted out the problem I would like to say thank you Show details ·  1

DTX 4000 Review

This unit is the second Oricom unit we have purchased, having a DTX4200 in our other vehicle.
The physical advantage of having a remote head is certainly a winner but the best feature is the dual receive function which is the prime reason for purchasing both units. The ability to listen to the truckies channel while also communicating with other convoy travelers makes life on the road a lot less stressful while being a safety feature. Show details ·  1

Well worth it!

Over the years I've ve had a Oricoms in various 4WD'S. Always happy with quality, ease of use and performance; as with this unit...Easy intallation with the option of mounting as a complete unit or split head. I mounted the main unit under the pass seat and head on the dash. The speaker is clear and easily understandable down on the floor. The unit is easy to use and to adjust to personal preferences.
Quality and performance of this unit is superb! Show details ·  1

I’m disappointed

Speaker is terrible and hard to understand, insulation on hand piece is coming apart, I’m about to remove it and replace it with my old unit. Looks good and great size just not suited to a truck Show details

Brilliant UHF Radio

Was very easy to install and has worked well from the outset. On good days even getting 25+km coverage in hilly conditions. Easy to use and operate. Clear internal speaker.  Show details ·  1

Poor quality microphone cable

A good unit but the microphone cable insulation was cracked on receipt of the first unit. To their credit Oricom has supplied me with 5 replacement units. Each of these was either broken on receipt or failed within a fortnight of installation even with no use.
At each point of contact I requested whether there was a quality problem and by the 3rd occasion requested a refund. None of these requests were ever addressed. I am only too happy to tell people on the numerous 4wd forums and campsites of my poor customer relations experience with Oricom. Show details

Excellent unit, easy to install and great customer service

Works well and easy to install. The cable on the hand unit frayed after 6mths. Submitted a claim. They called the next day and the replacement arrived the day after. Show details ·  1

Small and compact

Easy to install. Great features including the ability to use 2 channels at the same time. Clear sound and LED screen is a good colour. The additional head unit is an added bonus  Show details ·  1

Great like an aircraft radio but

The product is really good, but I used the extension to have the box up top and the controls infront on the dash, it stopped working and when I took the controls out of the bracket it was warped, it melted and the places where your tighten it pulled up and formed a bubble, with the connection bit pushing into the unit making an indentation, I had to make a cover for the unit to protect it from the sun and remove the spacers.
I shouldn't have to do that.
Other then that good unit, I suggest not placing onto starter battery as with voltage fluctuations the unit flashes to different colours. Show details
