Manufacturer: Cobra
Recommended?
Yes: 17 / No: 0

Well, the unit was well packaged has a lot of features, however....

Upon installing the unit, could not get any sound! Called Cobra Customer Service(NO TOLL FREE NUMBER), but they have bankers hours! Tried their website for troubleshooting, NON-EXISTENT! So after waiting through the weekend, called the NON-TOLL FREE Customer Service Number, and after 5 minutes of troubleshooting, determined that I had a faulty speaker.

I'm returning the unit to Amazon for a replacement.

Will update on the review when replacement is installed.

Price: $179.00
Pros: Good Radio, Bluetooth sync, phone, etc.
Cons: Pricey
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I actually have the Cobra 29 LX BT.

Did not see an option for that one on the menu.

NOT a small radio.

Kinda' pricey.

My buddy said: "what about the passenger's knees"?

To which I replied: "I'm not the passenger".

Price: $130.00
Pros: 4 LED Colors, Camo Color Finish
Cons: None yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a larger CB and some homework searching the threads for various mounting options is a good idea. I found the above the mirror location great. Using the clamps and brackets a simple clean method with no hole drilling required. Secure, clean and if removed no physical damage left behind.

Pros: Clear sound and great range.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This radio is perfect for anyone who wants a newer style digital radio with great functionality, and range that the Cobra name is known for. When I've been out on the trail and none of my buddies can contact people back at base camp, this radio can!

Pros: Easy to set-up
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The 29 series is a great "out of the box" set-up. If you're new to the concept of installing audio equipment, this set-up is right for you. The 29 series is Cobra's flagship series and comes chock-full of features.

Price: $50.00
Pros: Small and compact, good sound, cheaper than others, easy interface & easy to operate, mic included, mounting hardware included, warrenty, 10% off future cobra products
Cons: It wasn't free
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a smaller sized CB radio. It comes with basically everything you need, except coax cable and the antenna. It fits perfectly in the jeep (tj) and once its mounted. It stays.

Price: $129.00
Pros: Selectable color LCD face. Great product, but you have to have it tuned.
Cons: I don't like chrome
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this with the Firestik II (4'). It is installed on my '12 JKU. I took it to the local CB shop (Mesa CB, Albuquerque). Josh hooked me up with tuning and tuned my antenna to the CB. I have used this CB multiple times, and I have no complaints. I have it mounted on the passenger side with a mount I purchased locally. I have it setup, so I can remove when I am not out on the trails or don't need it to facilitate more room for the passenger.
