Cobra will debut the first CB radio to offer Bluetooth at the 2008 Mid-America Trucking Show, March 27-29 in Louisville, Ky.
Drivers can now receive and place calls via their CB radio rather than their cellphone. Incoming audio is routed through the radio's 5-watt CB speaker, making it easy for the driver to hear the caller and users can respond via the CB's handheld noise canceling microphone. Drivers can also answer and end calls by pushing a button on the CB.
The new CB radio is called the A 29 LTD BT. It has 4 watts AM RF power output, the maximum amount of power allowed by law, and will be available in the summer at $189.
