I like this radio if you just want to have 2 or 3 mile max. communications unless you are on flat land with no obstructions or on top of a mountain and line of sight with other radio. Although it does have 8 repeater channels, it is not a true GMRS radio and will not connect to a wide band repeater which is what most GMRS repeaters are. Had I known this before I purchased it I would not. It is designed by Midland to work whit their hand held and bubble pack radios.
Pros: Easy Install Well built Good for close family contact
Cons: Will not work as a true GMRS radio Short range 1 to 5 mile
