A new "upgraded" version of the TCB-550, which now includes a USB socket on the front to allow you to charge your phone, or power accessoroes such as a satnav.
This is a compact radio yet still offers a wide range of features. It is "multi-standard" so as well as covering all legal UK channels you can also use it in other EU countries by simply selecting a different "country code" (it will work on AM & FM in countries which permit this).
The front of the radio is the same size as the Midland 38 & 98 (meaning it will fit in a DIN adapter if required) but the radio is shorter (only 135mm) so it may fit in locations where the Midlands are too deep.
The radio has a good size display and large easy to use controls - which is what you want from a mobile radio!
The microphone does not have channel change buttons on it (unlike it's larger brothers) but uses a standard 4 pin plug.
