Two-Way GMRS Radio is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 32.
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 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 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 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 Found A Coronavirus Use For Our 2 GXT1000 Units! Had bought them mainly for our Florida hurricanes, when all telephone service can go out (and has here). Now we've found a new use for our 2 GXT1000 units. We’re using them as mobile in-house and on-the-property intercoms. More instantly responsive than cell phones, just a press on the button and talk. Because only one of us is going out into the community for essentials in hard-hit South Florida, to grocery stores & pharmacies. And that person who goes out is self-isolating within our home, no physical contact with the other. A bit OCD? Perhaps. But we’re aged 86 & 71, with a laundry list of medical issues. Can’t take any chances, yet we need to get our meds, some are only monthly. We also use Apple’s FaceTime on our desktop computers, iPads & iPhones. So we can see each other as we speak, when we’re near those devices. Yeah, old people can handle modern tech, too. But the Midland GXT units, that we can carry around with us for instant talking, are just great. Voice clarity wonderful. We never envisioned we’d be using them in a situation like this, Thanks, Midland!

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 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.

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.

Will the chargers shut off automatically when batteries are fully charged?

Asked by: Greg in New York

Does the GXT1000 model have a combination of FRS and GMRS? If so, would the FCC require a license if it is only operated on the FRS frequency?

Asked by: MegCampbell
The current GXT1000P (model number on the back of the physical radio, ie Model: GXT1000P) series radios on the market are considered combination GMRS/FRS radios. If operating on channels 8 – 14 at .5W of power, or 1 – 7 and 15 – 22 at 2W of power and under, you do not require a license. Manufacturers have up until September 30 2019 to reclassify their radios as a FRS or GMRS radio. At that time, the GXT1000P radios will be classified as a GMRS only radio and would require an FCC license regardless of transmitting power. Any GXT1000G (Model: GXT1000G) radios purchased after SEP 2018 will be GMRS only and will require an FCC license regardless of channel or transmitting power. We suggest you read our blogs on the current FCC changes, GMRS, and licensing if you would like better understanding of this slightly confusing topic!

What is the battery life in cold weather? Is there a temperature range for this device? Cell phones usually die within minutes in below zero temps. How does this compare?

Asked by: IanJ
Hello Ian, As with any hypothetical, it is hard to say exactly how long the radios will last in these temperatures. What we can say is that any battery will have decreased battery life in colder temperatures and it is always good to have a backup set of either rechargeable battery packs, or (4) AA alkaline batteries along. But, be sure to check with battery source you have in your radios prior to using the charging base. AA alkaline batteries cannot be charged using the base! If you have further questions one of our customer service team members can help you with this at 816-241-8500 between 8:00am - 4:30pm CST Monday - Friday.
