We all 28 Crossing guards us these radios to help keep tabbies on children and were they are . We talk to the next crossing guard to let them know how many children are coming to them and who they are. This help us keep trace of the children and make sure that the children get to each Crossing Guard and School safely.

BEST USES

Comments:

Bought these to use while my husband and I are riding our motorcycles. We wanted them for the hands free option so we could communicate while we were riding. Once we got on the road, actually, before we even left the driveway, they picked up the noise from the pipes but that was it. So, one of our mics would be transmitting constantly while we were riding down the road, but still wouldn't pick up when they spoke. And when we tried them in the house ahead of time, they would intermittently pick up our talking but not without having to shout. This happened regardless of the sensitivity setting. We even tried using them while riding by pressing the button on the "hands free" cord but this did not work either. Totally disappointed with this purchase.

Comments:

Moved cross country with all of our belongings in a u haul pulling a trailer with one of our vehicles on a trailer. My wife followed in our other car. Three days on the road and we never missed a beat. Able to discuss routes and rest time without stopping on the side of the road. Easy communication made the trip very manageable. Glad we chose this product

Comments:

The radios are advertised as waterproof. Site advertising, and even Midland's packaging claims radios are waterproof. I bought four GXT 1000 radios specifically to be used when fishing, expecting them to occasionally be dropped in the water. It was when one was accidentally dropped in and stopped working that I found out what they mean by waterproof, which is really not waterproof at all. I contacted Midland's warranty department and found out "waterproof" means resistant to a fine rain, that's it - your cellphone is light rain resistant. Other than the waterproof claim, the radios did work well, were easy to use and were very clear. Waterproofing aside, I'd say they are solid radios.

Comments:

I purchased this radio set for work use to replace an older set that wasn't cutting it. Very happy with these radios, the sound quality is excellent and the range is adequate for my use. I use the radio to stay in contact with employees inside my work building when I am outside walking the perimeter or relaying orders. 2 Cons: Certain accessories do not trigger the radio into TX mode and can be frustrating to operate. And the stock earpiece/mic that comes in the set can be discomforting when wearing for extended periods. Other than that excellent radios for the price.

So far they are working much better than the Motorola we replaced. We live in central VA foothills and bought radios so wife could reach me or I could reach help if needed, when I walked the dog or was out hunting our acreage. Have not found any dead spots yet. Had plenty with the other brand.

Midland GXT1000VP4 COmbo

 
5.0

PROS

  • Rugged
  • Good Audio
  • Clear Signal
  • Easy To Use

CONS

BEST USES

  • Outdoor Event Security

Comments:

I purchased five of the Midland GXT1000VP4 radio combo packages for use on our security teams at kid events. The first usage was at a kids campout. The units were a little heavy compared to other lower end units the other teams provided but not by much. The radios were used over a three day weekend for 8 security teams on a 60 acre park and worked flawlessly. One of the best features is the GXTs being water resistant / waterproof: one of the units took a serious dousing in a water gun escapade and never gave a seconds trouble. I did a lot of reading on the Midland GXT1000 units and purchased for several of the features such as Direct Call, additional privacy codes and locking keypad to name a few which are key when multiple people are sharing radios. I did some comparison shopping and Buytwowayradios.com definitely had the best pricing and when combined with the free ground shipping made it a great deal. Very pleased with the radios and especially the battery life. Units worked very well, clear reception and transmission. Many of the other teams were so impressed with the quality, performance and value of the combo pack's pricing, they will be ordering the same units. This was our first event using the new radios so I don't have any negative comments. I upgrade to three day shipping when I ordered the units ordered the units on a Saturday. They arrived on time, were packaged well and arrived in pristine condition. I've recommended your site to all our Security teams and I'll be a return customer. Thanks for everything.

Comments:

Included were 2 ant's for the old G-11 that still works and a Tee shirt for the wife. That was a surprise, Thanks Danny I put the units on the charger for the night as the owners manual states is the first charge is for 24hrs. I replaced the Ant. on the G-11 with the one Danny included with the Midland GXT1000's that came yesterday. The reception between the house and the steel workshop is alot better between the G-11 and the EL-cheapo bigshot store unit I was trying to use. Step one, the changing of the ant. is making things better already. I will test the reception between the house and the workshop with the GXT1000's tonight. If the Midland GTX1000's work better than an old G-11 and a 19$ audiovox unit, I'LL BE ONE HAPPY CAMPER.!! I tested the Midland GXT 1000's last night from the steal workshop and the house, a distance of aprx. 75 yards and direct line of sight. There was noplace in the workshop that I didnot have reception. Other than using the push to talk button, it was like using a phone, THESE RADIOS ARE GOING TO WORK OUT GREAT! Thank you again Danny, and the staff here at BUYTWOWAYRADIOS
