  1. Hi Guys,

    Just wondering if anyone can comment on which is the better Unit/Brand out of the three listed below and why (specially if you have one..pro's and con's).
    The three brands I'm looking at are: Autocom - Active Plus, baehr and the new StarCom 1 (Digital). As for the UHF radios , I'm looking at the Uniden 2 watt for the Autocom and the Digitech 3 watt for the StarCom 1.
    Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.



    Also I'm looking at installing it myself..Is it advisable or should I have the dealer do it? :grin:

  2. Depends how tech minded you are but I reckon just get a pro to fit it all in. Least then if it stuffs up, you have got someone to blame.

  3. Thanks :eek:) I agree..Do you have the Pro? or are you aware of someone that does? I spoke to the guy that supplies the StarCom and he was under the impression that you really need to have the mic near your mouth to be heard..
