Default New cobra 29 cb with bluetooth

Hey guys,

do any of you out there have that new cobra 29 cb with bluetooth? IF you do how is it?? If not do you plan on purchasing one?

I just bought one off ebay brand new for 130 bucks shipped and want to see what you guys think of it.


Thanks for your input.

Bought mine three weeks ago. Petro got them early. The CB works fine, just like any Cobra 29. The Bluetooth part, that is way I got it and glad I did. Very clear. It sounds like the caller is sitting next to you. I have an external speaker hooked up to mine. Everyone I call on it says that I am very clear also. They cannot hear background nose.

when using the phone part . do you have to key the mic every time you talk?

No. The mic acts as a speaker phone. You do not have to PTT. Just talk and the caller can hear you. I have mine set up so the mic is close to me so I don't even have to hold it. Just talk.

Sounds good Double R. 8)

I need to spend some rewards money. :lol:
Haven't had anything come along in a while I felt like buying.

I'm not happy with the bluetooth on my Garmin.
Not sure I really need another CB...
I should go in my basement and count how many I have now, of course some are old 23 ch. and a big stack of antennas. :roll:
I hate my basement... it has too much evidence against me.

I thought about getting one last month. My brother works for Cobra headquarters and he gets me everything cheap as hell on his employee discount. I would get one but the bluetooth button is in the mic therefore you cant ever use an after market mic. Stock mic's sound like crap, especially Cobra's. I use their radios but with an Astatic mic. Nice to know they work good though. The only other feedback I got was from my brother and that was what his coworkers said. Yeah! I'm sure they're not biased!

I've ran back with Double R across the PA pike a few times recently and his mic sounds crystal clear. I'm trying to sell my Cobra 29 black chrome edition now to get the bluetooth.

And that is with the Talk Back OFF and the Dynamic set at half.

My problem with the BT CB is, like said earlier, the Blue Tooth is in the microphone. I won't get one until there is a readily available supply of replacement microphones at a reasonable price at the truckstops. I don't want to end up on the road with a non-functional CB and no bluetooth to talk the phone with due to a microphone (which is the weakest link in a CB) failure.

I am glad to hear however that you can hang the mic close enough to be heard clearly without having to hold it in your hand. I was wondering about the legality of it this radio and the "hands-free" laws in California as well as numerous cities around the country!
