Two-Way GMRS Radio is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from USB Charger needed - 18650 batteries too Like the radios. Battery indicator indicates a full charge when it is almost dead. Seems like there is a whole bunch of similar radios from Midland that are similar in function and form. If I had to design a new version, I would start with it being powered by 1 or 2 Lithium Ion 18650 battery cells. These power most led flashlights and would make it simpler to carry batteried for both. That would make them super popular. Also make it use a micro usb charger and have the same power output at these. Currently if you want a USB charger capability you give up some range. I feel like there is a market for a high function handheld with those attributes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to GMRS radio This is a great FRS/GMRS radio. All FRS and GMRS channels. 5 watts of power. Lasts all day on a single charge. I own two sets. I very well may buy more. Cons Does not support GMRS repeater channels There are only 22 channels (unique frequencies) in the FRS/GMRS service. Channels 23 - 50 on Midland devices use the 22 channels and add a security code. This isn't really a problem but it is not a significant benefit either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from How do you know when batteries are fully charged? These have been working awesome so far. Thanks. I just wanted to check how do ACTUALLY know when the batteires are fully charged? My charger just stays red the entire time and never turns off. I don't want to over charge them. I keep reading that 10 to 12 hours to fully charge them but is there an auto shut off on the charger that i'm not seeing? how are you guys checking? THANKS! So far its a great product. just this issue i'm trying to figure out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! set of Two-Ways, for the price These are very nice high quality Walkie Talkies, for the price I got what I payed for. They work great at my house and all around my 50 acres we can get great coverage. I have yet to try out the new Micro Mobile base station, sounds like a great purchase. The headsets are wonderful I love the way they fit and look on my head, the covert acoustic headset that is. I get great over 8 hour charge on a full charge, they charge fast on the desk charger. Overall great product! Good Job Midland! I will only buy Midland now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I have enjoyed using it so much that I have bought 2 more sets. We have a total of 3 sets now. The range is good on the high setting even when going through several sets of walls and concrete floors. We get little to no interference with other people on the channel we use. We have had ours now for about 2 years and they still work well. We use them everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handhelds My son and I have been using these for about a month now and they are great radios. In our area we are able to communicate clearly in about a 3 mile radius due to the number of trees. They will be perfect for keeping in touch when we are hunting since cell service is limited where we hunt. The features on the radios are easy to use and they seem to be pretty durable. The one thing I wish these radios had are lithium ion batteries. I just purchased an MXT275 to mount in my truck and I'm looking forward to using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic reliability Radio has excellent reach. In a small, hilly town with lots of trees and houses, I can clearly hear my staff from the town square all the way out to the public pool. Battery life is good as well. Easy to use and carry. Weather radio is a plus, very easy to set up. We like all of the features, including the "lock" on the buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing feature filled long range Walkie Talkie These “walkie talkie” and their headsets are wonderful. The transmit audio was robust and loud, in my video I barely have the volume turned up at all. Whisper mode was interesting, as it really amplified quiet "whispered"…. I got over 8 hours of use on a full charge, and they seemed to charge pretty fast on the desk charger. My main (minor) complaint is that you have to use the charging base with the proprietary adapter plugs, either the wall or car. It would be nice if you could charge the radios directly with a micro USB so there is one less charger to pack. Some glaring advantages over other brands: (1) They cost less; and (2) Once you figure them out they are an absolute no-brainer to use. They have the simplest buttons and menu/interface plus the nicest large display characters of any of the inexpensive radios I know of. Mastering these units takes maybe 15 minutes reading the manual. ***Read the manual The radios are durable and well built. Not surprising, since Midland has some great commercial equipment.

The GXT1000 is advertised as a 5W radio, however, the FCC documentation lists it as only 2.5W. Others have asked for clarification. Please reply with the true watt rating for current production radios (GXT1000V4).

Asked by: Joe Radio
Hello! The GXT1000 is currently a 2.8W radio.

I have 4 of the GXT 1000G radios. I have 1of them that got a privacy code entered. I keep turning it off but if you power down the radio the ctcss keeps coming on. How can this be stopped? Once this happens the rest of the radios don't communicate with it

Asked by: Kristen
After off (oF) is displayed in the privacy tone selection, press PTT to save and exit.

When set up call alert, it always changes call alert in all existing channels to the current one. Is this by design that only one call alert for one handset, but a different call alert for each channel? I understand there are 10 call alerts available.

Asked by: T2020
The call tone selection is radio wide, it is the same for all channels.

I have a pair of GTX1000P per the back sticker. Are these water resistant? When I search for this question I keep finding GTX1000V4P or something along those lines which is resistant.

Asked by: Josh B
The GXT1000P is JIS4 Waterproof which means it can withstand light rain and splashing water.

If you use AA batteries rather than the rechargeable battery pack, will the radio still transmit at maximum power on all supported channels? Some reviews suggest the transmit power is reduced from 5W to 2W on channels 1-7 and 15-22.

Asked by: madcap
You should see the same, or better, results with full regular batteries. It will not change the transmit power.

What is the wattage of the radio in FRS and in GMRS

Asked by: Anonymous
It doesn't really work that way. This is a GMRS radio, as it is capable of transmitting over 2W of power. Like all radios on channels 8-14 this radio will only be able to transmit at .5W per FCC regulations. On all other channels it will transmit over 2W.

What MHz are the "extra" channels? No more non-answer answers please!

Asked by: argh marketing
The "extra channels" are simply pre-programmed with privacy codes. They are still on the same 462 and 467 MHz frequencies. You can see this information if you look at the chart in the manual.

Negative, that is not a feature of any currently Midland walkie talkies.
