No cell service? No problem. The T800 allows you to share and track locations with your travel companions, and message them too. Just download the app and connect your smartphone via Bluetooth. Explore off-grid confidently with easy group communication. These radios are an essential tool for staying safe while you have fun, featuring a range of up to 35 miles and NOAA weather alerts to warn your group of incoming weather. Custom call tones help grab the attention of members in your group before you start speaking. The T800 can communicate with other FRS/GMRS radios regardless of brand by being on the same channel and privacy code.
