Head for the hills while staying in touch
Midland's GXT1000VP4 hand-held GMRS radios are rugged, reliable, and ready for your trip on the trail. With 50 total channels, 285 privacy codes, NOAA weather alerts, and a 36-mile range, these water-resistant units are a great addition to your outdoor gear collection.
Made for the outdoors
Designed for outdoor life, these rugged, water-resistant radios offer a maximum range of up to 36 miles, so you'll be able to stay in touch over long distances. With handy channel scan and NOAA Weather Alert technology, you'll be glad you packed these water-resistant radios in your camping pack or go-bag.
Easy to use
The buttons are easy to use, even when you're wearing gloves, and call alert ensures that you'll know when someone's trying to hail you. If you don't have a hand free when the call comes over, you can rely on eVOX hands-free operation to communicate clearly. You can even program 10 unique call alerts, so you'll always know which member of your party is trying to contact you.
The backlit LCD screen is easy to read, and you'll also appreciate features like channel monitor, vibrate alert, keypad lock, and “whisper mode,” which allows you to speak softly and still be heard by others — a very handy thing for hunters.
Plenty of power
These radios are powered by two 700mAh rechargeable battery packs (included) that work with the included charging dock. AC and DC adapters are included, too, and in a pinch each radio will accept three AAA batteries.
Note: Maximum range can only be achieved over water or open rural areas under ideal conditions.
