MicroMobile Two Way Radio is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 238.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Saver with all the features. I've had this radio installed in a Jeep JK for about a week now. Besides using this for off road fun I'm also volunteer zone leader for our local fire council in which we operate two GMRS repeaters which we use for local emergency and disaster relief communications. Having the repeater channels is a plus and I can see other members adding this to their vehicles. I'm also a licensed ham radio operator I can tell you this radio is built as well as the amateur and professional radios that I'm used to operating. Besides the MTX 275, I also own the MTX 115, MTX 100 and a few T70 handhelds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Range and Reception and Easy to Use! We upgraded to the MXT275 last month. We have been using our Midland FRS/GMRS handhelds for 2 years between vehicles. However, over the horizon communication was not always possible, and keeping track of a handheld while offroad is not always easy. The MXT275 has increased our range and reception beyond our expectations! The setup on our dash and ease of use of the radio makes this a perfect upgrade. I can highly recommend this setup to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Thought Out Design Installed it in a 2006 Jeep TJ Rubicon and anybody familiar with these know how difficult it is to find space to install anything. I mounted it behind the panel under the steering column. Used a 3’ extension with a flush plug installed in center console that makes it extremely easy to remove the head unit say when times I go topples and doors off. I did use the “JK” windshield antenna mount after some reworking as seen in the pictures. Great radio and if I had a wishlist it would be to re drill the mounting holes in the antenna mount to fit a TJ, offer the 3’ extension w/plug and maybe offer some more dashboard mike holders (made mine out of a old cell phone holder) thanks for a great Radio...Joe

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent follow on to the MXT115 Been using the MXT115 for many months and happy with performance, but it was in a van and getting to (and seeing) the controls was always a problem. Got the MXT 275 on pre-order (arrived quickly, thanks) and just swapped the unit into the existing bracket, antenna (MXTA11) and wiring. Same great performance but MUCH easier to see and use with everything right there on the handset. Moved the MXT115 to a desk in a trailer where visibility and access to the control unit is better and I'm a happy traveller. Also, a thank you to the service folks. I sent a request for the current draw specs (off, standby, Rx, Tx) and got the data the next day. Good info for those of us keeping track of Ahrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor to Tractor communication We recently bought 11 micro mobiles and 4 GXT1000 radios to better improve instant communications on the farm. So far 2 weeks into the switch we are extremely please and satisfied. We have them in all the tractors and combines as well as the semis. Range is better than we were experiencing with our CB’s and seems to be more reliable. We have 4 mxt115’s and 4 mxt275’s as well as 3 mxt400. Doing. It over I would have went with 8 mxt275’s for the equipment due to better versatility. I plan on doing a full YouTube review in the near future. Thanks for an awesome product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent GMRS mobile! I got the MXT275 on pre-sale, and did an unboxing and installation video, and have been using it for over a month now. This is an amazing GMRS radio with a decent range. I have little to no interior room in my car, so this was perfect. The control head is attached to a mount that I made out of a ProClipUSA mount, a RAM arm mount, and some ABS plastic sheet. I initially used this radio with a PCTel unity gain NMO mount antenna, but have since moved on to a Larsen LP450NMO puck, and have seen a jump in performance. Can't recommend this enough. The only feature I could ask for would be an ignition sense wire, or an ignition status sense that would turn the radio on when the ignition is turned on, as I have mine wired to an ignition-controlled fuse block, and have to turn it on manually every time I start the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect radio for trail runs I had a CB and Ham installed in my Jeep for trail runs, but found I hardly used them because everyone else I wheeled with just used GMRS, so this was a no brainer rather than using a handheld. Installation was very straight forward. I used hose clamps to afix the base mount under the drivers seat. I had to fabricate a small mount for the magnetic antenna. The hand mic/speaker feeds up alongside the center console, making it easy to use while on the trail. The included manual answered all the questions I had when it came to settings. Overall, I'm very happy with this radio, so I bought a couple for my sons too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MXT275 I got this unit to replace my Midland CB in my Jeep. The clarity and range is phenomenal. with just the included min-antenna, I’m able to reach a repeater 16.9 miles from my house. It’s going to be a game changer when I travel in conveys with other Jeeps and when we get to the trails. I hard wired mine to power and installed it under the passenger seat. The ability to control the radio from the handset made that possible. Changing the LED color to match my interior lighting was a cool touch. Time will tell about longevity, but if it’s made like my Midland CB, I’ll be enjoying this unit for many years to come.

In a previous question, you said that you fixed an issue with the gain on the mic. "This was an issue with some of our units in our very first run of the MXT275 last year. The issue has since been fixed." How do I get mine fixed - I have an early one.

Asked by: jabber292
Hello, we identified a select amount of mics in the first run of the MXT275 in 2018 that had an issue with the gain on the mic. The mics that were reported by customers were replaced since they were covered under our one year MicroMobile warranty. If you are having issues with your mic you can please call customer service at 816-241-8500 M-F 8am-4:30pm CST.

I had read some prior reviews about the MXT275 where users complained of low audio being received to other GMRS radios. In other words, persons hearing a transmission from a MXT275 had to turn their volume controls all the way up to copy the audio.

Are the 275 and 115 models compatible with other brands of GMRS radios or strictly midland to midland only? 

Asked by: Coach
Any radio in our MicroMobile line up (MXT105, MXT115, MXT275, and MXT400) will communicate with any other radio, regardless of brand, as long as it is also a UHF GMRS or FRS radio using the same channel/frequency.

Regarding the mxt275 with the stock antenna, is an swr check still required. It does not mention that in the online owners manual. It just describes the procedure with no mention to swr.

Asked by: Leo62
No, all of our antennas are "plug and play" meaning they are ready to go out of the box. No SWR meter required as they are tuned to a center frequency. MidlandUSA

Can you please tell me the pinouts for the wiring between the handheld control unit and the main unit of the MXT275? With the pinouts I can see if I can connect these two with existing wiring that may have one or two fewer wires than the standard.

What is the power output is on "low" or on channels 1-7? How much current does the unit draw when transmitting at high power, low power and just receiving?

Asked by: Xterrible
Hello, the MXT275 is a GMRS radio unable to transmit over 5W of power on channels 1 - 7 per the FCC. That will be the only power setting you will be able to access per programming on these channels. On the current draw; with the radio off it will pull less than 5mA, low transmitting power is less than 1750mA and on high less than 3500mA. Receiving is less than 300mA.

As of September 2017, the FCC allows GMRS radios to use FRS channels 8-14, albeit with a maximum transmitting power of 0.5 watts. Will this radio be updated in the future to include those channels?

Asked by: JohnD
Hey JohnD, While that is true to an extent, only hand-held portable units may transmit on these 7 channels. Here is the info: FCC Title 47, PART 95, Subpart E, §95.1763 Part D: 467 MHz interstitial channels. Only hand-held portable units may transmit on these 7 channels. The channel center frequencies are: 467.5675, 467.5875, 467.6125, 467.6375, 467.6625, 467.6875, and 467.7125 MHz. §95.1787 GMRS additional requirements: Each hand-held portable unit transmitter type submitted for certification under this subpart is subject to the rules in this section. (4) The antenna must be a non-removeable integral part of the GMRS unit. Our MicroMobile radios have a removable antenna, thus are classified as a “Mobile Radio”; therefore, according to FCC rule those radios are not capable of transmitting or receiving on 467 MHz interstitial channels (commonly referred to as channels 8-14): 467.5675, 467.5875, 467.6125, 467.6375, 467.6625, 467.6875, and 467.7125 MHz. Hope that helps clear things up!

Channels 1-7 on my radio are stuck on low power, changing them in the menu doesn't change the indicator from LO to HI. Any ideas what I should do?

Asked by: Skitter302
Hey there, you will not be able to change that as GMRS radios are limited to 5W of power per the FCC on channels 1 - 7. You would need to switch to 15 - 22 to get full power (GMRS is limited to 50W of power on those channels!).

How much surface area is needed to get a proper ground plane with the included antenna? I know the more the better, but there isn’t much horizontal metal on a softtop jeep JK other than the hood and fender. Where is the antenna mounted in the preview pic?

Asked by: MR11
Hello, You are correct, the more surface area the better. The minimum ground plane required should be ¼ wavelength in radius. At 462-467 MHz that’s about 6 inches. MidlanUSA

Hello there, the speaker for the MXT275 is actually both in the base and in the handset! If desired, an optional external speaker (purchased separately) can be connected to the EXT SPKR jack. When selecting an external speaker, ensure the speaker has 8-ohm impedance and is rated for 4.0 watts.
