“10-4, Good Buddy:” Company aims to bring CB radio into the 21st century

One of the defining trends of the 1970s was the rise of Citizen’s Band (CB) radio. During CB’s heyday, truckers everywhere had their own “handles” and helped each other avoid save time by avoiding tie-ups and crashes.

Nowadays, the CB radio is hardly popular anymore due to interference, range limitations and the need to fit extra equipment in a car.

Now, a Kickstarter campaign aims to bring current technology to the spirit of CB radio.

London- based startup GoTalk Pro will offer a GPS navigation device combined with open communication via mobile network.

The kit consists of a rugged Bluetooth handset inspired by CB radio and a dual interface smartphone app – traditional satellite navigation and an interactive tactical compass showing real time location of users on a game-like map.

But the key feature in GoTalkPro is easy, quick communication between users via mobile internet, without logins, phone numbers or usernames.

Unlike simple CB radio, there are no range restrictions– connect with anyone, anywhere, any time with a press of a button.

While several of the elements needed to create this product have existed for a few years, now mobile networks finally have the coverage it takes to make GoTalk Pro viable.

With GoTalk Pro, drivers can cooperate rather than compete, and have the benefits of a community, like CB radio did in the old days.

The GoTalkPro is built to exceed IP67 rating and will survive just about anything you throw at it. It also is one of the smallest and loudest devices on the market, as well as the only one to feature a powerful LED light.

It allows users to stay safe when out and about, to have fun with their friends and stay connected, so they won’t lose their team or group.

This is a revolutionary product, worthy of a funding and support, which is why the GoTalk Pro team has turned to Kickstarter to get underway.
