MicroMobile Two Way Radio is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is a nice little radio I love the size. It has decent reception and is mostly easy to use. It is cheap and small and unlike most GMRS mobile radios it does not need to be programed with a computer to work. My major complaint is that for repeaters, it must do the same TX/RX codes. As a result this radio can only use 1/3rd of repeaters in my area since most have a code to activate the repeater but no code to listen to the repeater. This radio would get 5 stars if it had two software updates: 1. It needs separate TX/RX repeater codes. 2. It should show the actual codes displayed on the radio screen instead of a number that represents the code.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and operate I bought the this two way radio about a year ago now. It has been perfect, I don't move it from one vehicle to another but love the compact size and easy to use functions. I mounted this in a 2015 Jeep Wrangler and it works perfectly with my Midland Handhelds and communicates well with others in our Jeep rides. The Jeep is limited in space so the micro mobile was easier to mount and find a proper location. The speaker is very clear and loud. I have other Midland products and 100% satisfied with all of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like mine I have had this radio(mxt115) for about a year now, I just bought a second. I do not use it a lot but do like to have it available just in case. I like the features and have grown use to this being available when I want or need it. I started with a Walmart mxt 90 and now have 2 mxt 115's and a mxt400 as well. I get great range and plan on playing around with it more in the near future. I have purchased a DPD productions base antenna as well as a Br-450 w/ a tram 1465 I plan to try as a home setup very soon. I did upgrade the mobile Antenna but for GMRS, the external antenna helps so much. I wanted to try the MICROMOBILE® MXTA11 6DB GAIN ANTENNA but have been unable to locate one so far. Thank you Midland for a great product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution for Limited Space The MXT115 MicroMobile was the perfect solution for my new SUV. Its tiny size and very simple installation was perfect for the center console, nothing larger will fit! The built-in speaker delivers good sound. The MXT115 is not a top tier radio--I didn't expect it to be, but it adequately suits my needs for a mobile GMRS radio in my new vehicle. The receiver audio is choppy on my unit when using CTCSS, but it is tolerable. Thanks to Midland for making me "mobile" again! (Note: I use an aftermarket 1/4 wave magnet mount antenna for enhanced performance.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome radio. I have used it in obstructed environments in hill country and have gotten ranges of over 10 mi with big hills, trees and rocks in the way. If I’m using the repeater channels, I can get even bigger distances (make sure you get permission to use the towers!). We now have three different trucks in our weekend 4×4 group that use these radios now and we won’t be going back to CBs ever again. Absolute gamechanger. Works awesome with our GXT handhelds too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I ordered this radio directly through the Midland USA website, and when it arrived in the mail my first impression was that it felt very solid and durable. The hand mic is nice and heavy, giving it a great feel as well. The radio is compact and would be easy to integrate into a go-kit. One thing that is not included in the manual is the specific sub-audible tone frequencies associated with each privacy channel. Having a tone frequency table in the manual would be nice when trying to use this radio with other GMRS radios. But aside from that, the instructions in the manual are straight-forward and easy to follow. Overall, this is a great product that I recommend for any GMRS operators looking to upgrade from 5-watt handheld radios.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small size! This Radio is fantastic! It is extremely small but performs almost as well as my ham radio. My Jeep club is doing a side by side comparison of ham, CB and GMRS radios to make a decision on what to use on trips. This radio is is the way to go for any off road groups looking for a communication system, it will blow CB away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far very happy. I’ve had the radios for about a week now. They are installed in Jeep Wranglers with the 3db ghost antenna. We live in very hilly central PA, and can communicate approximately 7 miles radio to radio. I have connected with repeaters about 27 miles away! I have ordered a 3db whip antenna from another vendor in hopes of getting better radio to radio communications in the hills and city. Over all we are happy with these. They blow CB radios out of the water, and are perfect for trail communications.

Does this come with a cable to wire directly to the battery or is there a different cable to use? 

Asked by: Tyler B
The MXT115 comes with a cable wire that connects to a DC connector. However, you can cut the wire at the connector and strip back the wire to connect it directly to the battery. If you need additional assistance you can contact customer service at [email protected] or 816-241-8500.

I’m trying to get to channel 10 but can’t figure out how

Asked by: Mtuck
The FCC limits the power output to .5 watts on channels 8-14 and since the MXT115 is unable to reduce its power to such low wattage those channels have been removed from the radio.

Will this increase my ability to reach people only using handhelds? Also for them to reach me? This doesn’t work on channels past 14?

Asked by: Steve77
Hello Steve, Transmitting range for radios in a group will always be limited by the lowest powered radio - meaning that if your handheld is under 5W, you will be limited to that range. The MicroMobile is much more powerful, with an external antenna, both of which greatly increase range. In this scenario the MircoMobile could be "out of range" for the walkie to reach, but the walkie could still receive transmissions from the MicroMobile. The MicroMobile is capable of using repeater channels but cannot act as a repeater itself. The MicroMobile is a GMRS radio with a detached antenna, meaning it can transmit at 5W on channels 1 - 7, cannot transmit on 8-14 at all (FCC does not allow radios with detached antennas on these frequencies - 467MHz - and the power setting cannot exceed .5W so we programmed the radio to skip over those channels) and on 15 - 22 you will see max range as these channels allow GMRS to transmit up to 50W. Please see our blogs on the subject for more detailed information, or give us a call directly so that we can better assist you. Midland Radio

Is there a way to make these radios a private  frequency or are they always public? Looking for something for my farming operation and do not want everyone listing to our conversations. 

Asked by: Bright1234
Negative, you would need to be on a different radio band all together. Our Business Band radios would provide you with your own designated frequency for more privacy so please look into our BR200 and MB400 radios. I would also suggest you just give us a call so we can better discuss and understand your radio communication needs, and find a radio that works for you!

I was wondering if you can adjust the power for transmitting within the US/Canadian border areas pursuant to FCC § 95.29? It says when operating North of Line A and East of Line C (Canadian border areas) you can only transmit no more than 5 watts.

Asked by: tswag
Hello there, It is important to note that these radios are not permitted in Canada as they do not allow more than 2W of power on GMRS. The MicroMobile radios are programmed to transmit at or just below 5W in channels 1-7 as that is the max allowed for GMRS per the FCC on those frequencies in the USA. I would suggest using only channels 1-7 in those areas of concern and you should be good. Midland Radio

If this is compatible with FRS handhelds, who do you use them if the FRS channels are skipped?

Asked by: DynamicFlurry
Great question - FRS radios are now allowed to use all of the shared frequencies in 462MHz and 467MHz. Since these GMRS MicroMobiles have a detached antenna, they are not allowed on the previously FRS only 467MHz channels (8-14) that are limited to .5W of power. You can communicate with those FRS walkies on channels 1-7 and 15-22!

Can I use it outside of a vehicle, can I connect it to regular power and use it?

This may be a dumb question, but can you talk between two or more of the mxt115, or do you have to talk between this and a handheld?

Asked by: Jach32
Not a dumb question at all! You can do both of the things you mention; MXT115 to MXT115 or MXT115 to walkies. All radios need to be using the shared FRS GMRS channels, with all radios set to the same channel (MXT115 is not programmed to use channels 8 - 14) but past that you can add as many radios to the conversation as you would like!

How long are microphone and outside antenna cables? Is an extension cable available for antenna?

Asked by: Miata
The mic cord is about 6ft stretched and the antenna cord is 19ft. If this is not enough for you, you would need to purchase additional items. Those would be; a new mount, antenna cable, and antenna. The antenna that comes along with the MXT115 is attached to it's antenna cord, so you would not be able to use an extension cord with this. Or you could look into the MXT115VP3 (VP3 meaning it comes with additional items along with the radio)! We suggest you look at the MXTA8, MXTA11, and MXTA12 on our MicroMobile accessories page!

Why does my mxt115 skip over the frs channels. How can I use these.
