Hockey arenas hold passionate crowds. During a game, the noise is intense. There are people banging on the glass, crowds cheering, jeering, and chanting; and there is the sound of the action on the ice. From pucks and punches flying to the sound of ice as the blades of 10 players, 12 if you count the goalies, slice through in pursuit of the elusive puck, there is noise everywhere. It makes communication quite a challenge — but one that push-to-talk two-way radios can manage beautifully because they cancel out background noises and enhance voice communication.

Extended cellular and GPS range. Courtesy of the built-in external antenna, the UV350 allows greater communication range and quality than standard two-way radios. This allows you to take your communications further, while enjoying crystal clear receptions, than ever before.
5-inch display. This is the road to Damascus for businesses that rely on GPS routing, digital readouts, and other on-screen data and communication. The display is easy to read and doesn’t require drivers to switch back and forth from the safer, hands-free communication of the UV350 to riskier options like mobile phones for important information.
Compliant with hands-free legislation. Because it offers the ease of one-touch communication with groups and individuals alike, the UV350 is compliant with most legislation related to hands-free driving for commercial vehicles. More importantly, it keeps activities behind the wheel, as they pertain to communication, safer than ever.
Fast processing speeds for multitasking. The UV350 features a Qualcomm chipset that is 1.2 GHz and quad-core. This means the device can pull some serious weight when it comes to processing information and handling multiple tasks simultaneously.
Runs on the android operating system. This opens doors to a whole host of Play Store apps for greater efficiency and functionality for drivers and organizations. Essentially, if you have an app for your business on the Play Store, these radios can run your apps. This includes other apps that might monitor uptime, measure driver behaviors, log hours behind the wheel, etc.
Acts as a Wi-Fi hotspot. When drivers or passengers need access to high-speed Internet on-the-go, this communications device acts as in-vehicle access to the Internet.
Powers on with vehicles. Because this is a vehicle-mounted system that operates with the vehicle’s power, when the vehicle powers on, so does the radio. As long as there is power to the vehicle, this radio works, making it an excellent tool for managing emergencies and more.
As you can see, there is a lot to love about the Uniden® UV350 4G/LTE Vehicle Fleet Communication Device, especially when combined with the Peak PTT Everest Push to Talk System.

There are many PTT radios on the market today that are built for heavy-duty or rugged use. This means they can withstand a little wind, rain, and a few drops along the way. Most cell phones aren’t as durable and will crack under the pressure of a single drop. Plus, many cell phones become unusable in the wind and rain.
