Midland Radio's Brand Ambassador, Aaron Paris shares his favorite MXT575 features.
Midland Radio Brand Ambassador Aaron Paris gave FourWheeler Magazine a look at the new MXT575.
"It is 50 Watts, has all the controls on the mic like your favorite MXT275, and it's just going to be a really great addition," Paris said.
His and Sean Holman with FourWheeler's favorite feature is its ability to be hidden away, keeping dash space from crowding.
"It's compact. You can keep the radio body packed away," Paris added.
The MXT575 is one of Midland's most highly anticipated products, combing high-power and convenience.
"Midland has basically taken the best of the MXT400 and the MXT275 so you do have NOAA Weather Radio. The cool thing for anyone just getting into GMRS, hitting repeaters, you now have split-tones which is an awesome feature that everyone has been begging for," Holman said.
Paris said the MXT575's repeater capability is a feature that will only come in handy more as others continue to adopt GMRS.
"As GMRS continues to grow, you're going to see more repeaters put out there by people that are just looking to grow the GMRS line. It's just really taken off lately."
With new power, comes new range.
"It's just pushing the boundaries that much more with power which everyone has looked for," Paris added.
Holman said this radio is taking everyone's favorite features and bringing them a radio that will take communication to new levels in the overlanding space.
"The MXT575 also has the NOAA Weather Radio that the MXT400 did not. Midland took everything that people said they wanted to see to make them the radios they needed," he said.
And for Holman, it's a radio he couldn't be more excited to take on the trails.
"I, for one being a Midland user am super excited about it. I can't wait to see how these work on the trails."
