Pros:
It is well made radio. According to information from the Internet, gathered at a military factory in China. Programmable software BF-490. The plastic housing quality. The buttons work well. Voice notifications can be programmed in English. It has a flashlight. When you first turn on the battery worked 8 hours. The sound at the reception and transmission of sonorous and clear, I tested range of 2 kilometers (more have not tried it).
Cons:
Included there is an adapter plug for the euro, but you can buy SKU: 3529. Includes no cable programming and software for flash channels. Initially, the range of FRS channels are sewn with codes CTCSS. It is necessary to reprogram. Instruction in Chinese.
Other:

Bottomline:
Excellent radio for hiking in the woods, bike ride and travel. Hiding in the palm of your hand, and acts only antenna.
