Designed to be used in your car, truck, RV, or UTV, the MicroMobile MXT400 15-Channel Two-Way GMRS Radio includes a push-to-talk microphone and built-in speaker. Intended for mounting either under the dash or vertically on the center console, the radio comes with a mounting bracket for quick installation and can either be hardwired to the vehicle's electrical system or via the included 12 VDC adapter. An external speaker jack in the rear of the unit allows you to attach an external speaker (available separately).

The MXT400 features 15 GMRS channels and transmits using up to 40W of power via an adjustable power switch (Hi/Mi/Lo). 142 privacy codes allow you to secure any channel, while monitor mode lets you keep an ear on a selected channel. To increase transmission distance, the radio features eight selectable repeater channels (channels 15-22). The backlit LCD screen allows for use even in low-light conditions, and the front knobs provide a quick and easy way to adjust the volume and channel.

    Midland MXT400 reviews

    MicroMobile MXT400 15-Channel Two-Way GMRS Radio is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just installed this radio in my truck. Very impressive radio. The range talking to my wife who was using a Garmin Rino inside the house and me on the MXT400 on high power was about 7 miles in an urban setting. One of the reviews stated privacy codes did not work. I found that they do indeed work. Follow the manual on setting the codes. I suspect people are using the DCS codes vs the CTCSS codes where you look at the manual and cross reference the privacy code to the frequency you must select under CTCSS. Works perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the few legal (FCC part 95) radios. I received this radio 2 weeks ago. It is temporally using a Tram 1170 UHF mag mount antenna. The SWR is at 1.1 to 1. (Previously tuned to GMRS frequencies. With the antenna centered on my roof. Ford f250. I was using it on Long Beach Wa. On low power I was consistently hitting a repeater in Astoria Or. I had tried it on medium pwr, 22 watts, but that was not necessary as long as I was on the the beach. This is a distance of approximately 20+ miles. I do not know the height of the repeater in Astoria. Hope this helps. Keith T.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This radio blew my mind the first time I used it. The most range I’ve ever gotten from a GMRS radio. I was able to talk to a friend with another MXT400 who was over 10 miles away in a decently wooded area. Don’t forget your FCC license!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Informed Of One Thing: Output Power Levels The MXT400 is a solid little radio, as is the MXT100/105/115. However, be informed about one thing: Channels 1-7 have a maximum power limit of FIVE watts on all the radios. The MXT400 has three power settings: Low, Medium, High The Low is 5-watts; the Medium is 22-watts; the High is 40-watts. Channels 1-7 are hard set at Low and cannot be changed. Channels 15-22 may be user set to any of the three power levels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Midland thank you for finally creating a decent user friendly GMRS TYPE ACCEPTED radio. Seems to be sturdily built for a bit of rough handling just don’t get it wet. One improvement would be a software update to allow some storage of multiple repeaters with same frequency different power and tones. This would make my trips back to New York easier to switch back and forth same repeater freq different tones. Not going to reduce stars though. Good rig.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functionality works great. Features are nice. The only issue I have with it is that it is only 35W, not the advertised 40W, according to my power meter. I would still buy the radio, but please note that it didn’t put out the rated power.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve been using 2-way radios for years and if you count the walkie-talkies I played with as a kid then pretty much most of my life. The MXT400 is by far the best 2-way radio I’ve ever used! The range is remarkable and the features are great. I tested these out with a handheld GMRS radio and even though we were using mobile and handheld we got a lot more range than just two handhelds. I was several miles down the road before my wife and I lost clear signal (and she was indoors!). Imagine two 40W mobile radios talking! I live in an urban area and was very surprised about the range and quality of this radio. This radio packs a punch! I plan on getting more of these radios to expand our use. If you’re a prepper, travel a lot, or just want some on the go radio fun you need to get this radio! If you’ve ever installed a CB in your car then you’ll know what to do. It installs the same way. Using the scan feature, I’ve found that there’s some channels with people talking so come join the radio community. Pros: Range, lots and lots of range! Voice quality. Features. Simple to learn. Easy to install if you’re CB radio savvy. Still easy either way. Works with other handheld and mobile GMRS radios even of different brands. Makes me not rely on a cell phone so much. Cons: The only thing I can say against it is even though it’ll work with other brands of GMRS radios, some of the features don’t carry over. I tested this radio with a Motorola Talkabout T460. Midland and Motorola use different privacy codes schemes with their radios. While using privacy codes from one brand or the other it hindered communication. But if I put them both on the same channel without privacy codes they worked perfectly. I’m not saying that this makes either radio bad but it’s something to make note of. I plan on getting Midland brand handhelds anyway so I can use all the privacy codes. I’ve looked up info on the internet that there’s some privacy codes that may work together but if you’re new to the radio community just play it safe and just go 100% Midland brand. (That’s my own opinion. Midland didn’t pay me to say that.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jury is still out, but,,,,,,,,we'll see TX/RX distance is great! PL code problem w/ other radios! We use 15.7 or 462.55 PL 85.4, we have found either the MXT400 has an issue or our other radios have an issue, not completely sure, just being honest. The radio so far has been impressive, however when we use PL codes Reception on the MXT400 becomes sporadic, sometimes it works and then other times it doesn't, for now we are using just the channel with no code, the radio works great this way, very impressive distance, it is connected to a Diamond 50a fiberglass whip and SWR is fantastic. We did try a completely different radio to test the PL problem and the MXT400 worked fine when contacting a Motorola, but Baofengs not so good for some reason? Now we just need to find HTs that will work with the MXT using PL codes.
