Two-Way GMRS Radio is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
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 Very Happy I've been using this radio for about 3 weeks now at work instead of the company provided one, the Midland radio is so reliable, and people in other departments can contact me and I can contact them. I am trying hard to get this radio to be our go to radio, it is absolutely comfortable as well. The belt clip actually clips to the belt and when you bend over and pick something up off the floor it doesn't "slip" off. The only thing I would like a little different is the ear piece, it is hard to wear with hardhat/earmuffs, I'm worried that overtime the mic wires might break because of the earmuff, it seems too stiff. Very minor though. I'm thrilled that I bought these.

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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Great quality and features at a reasonable price I bought these radios as a means of reliable communications while camping, hiking, and for potential emergency situations. They are great quality with plenty of features at a better price. Easy to set-up and hand one off to the spouse and kids for use. Sound quality is great and range is decent. I'd give it five stars if it came with li-ion batteries instead of high maintenance, short life NiCad batteries, but at least I can throw in some AAs in a pinch. Highly recommend if you need a durable, quality, mid-priced comms for your family.

Can you use 4 AA rechargeable batteries to increase the mAh….was thinking about using  lithium AA rechargeable batteries or maybe NiMH AA rechargeable batteries?? Of course these would be recharged in a separate recharging unit NOT inside the GTX 1000

Asked by: Greff
Yes, you can definitely do this. Please be sure no to charge the AA batteries in the GXT1000 on the desktop charger.

New to this radio GXT1000VP4. Can it be charged in the vehicle without the charging base?

Asked by: Ben B
To use the DC adapter it needs to be plugged into the base to charge, not the radios directly.

How can I long rang talk to someone 24 miles out.

Asked by: Jomar river
You have to make sure your settings are on the H for high power and you are using non-FRS channels (don't use channels 8-14) If there are obstructions like buildings/trees/houses in between the radios it will significantly reduce the radios power each time it has to pass through a solid surface and you most likely wont get close to 24 miles.

I'm a newbie and can't get Midland GXT1000 to work with a neighbor's BaoFeng BF888S.  We're tried using the same channels, testing all channels 1-22. I have NO privacy codes set, to avoid any numbering differences with CTCSS/DCS. Can anyone help?

Hello, we cannot guarantee compatibility with Non-Midland Products.
