4 October 2023

Midland Radio, the leader in two-way radio communication technology, today announced an exciting update to its collaboration with Jeep®, the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles. Designed for enthusiasts looking to push boundaries, the off-road powerhouses are introducing two Jeep branded MicroMobile® products, including the MXT275J 15 Watt GMRS Two-Way Radio and MXT575J 50 Watt GMRS Two-Way Radio. Alongside the new radios, Midland is also introducing the MA75J Jeep MicroMobile Microphone for ultimate ease-of-use and control.

The Midland MXT275J Jeep MicroMobile Two-Way Radio combines compact design with exceptional performance, offering reliable communication with 15 Watts of GMRS power, bringing a maximum range of up to 50 miles to help ensure uninterrupted contact on challenging trails. For those seeking unparalleled power and extended range, the Midland MXT575J Jeep MicroMobile Two-Way Radio is the ultimate choice. With an impressive 50 Watt GMRS output, this radio provides exceptional communication capability. It enables Jeep owners and off-road adventurers to venture further, stay better connected and tackle any trail with confidence. Both are designed to withstand even the roughest conditions and will provide reliable communication for years to come.

"Our collaboration with Jeep is a testament to Midland's position as the market leader in off-road communications, and we're delighted to expand on our off-road strategy by launching two new GMRS products," said Dan Schwartz, CEO of Midland Radio. "The MicroMobiles provide the extra oomph and range for people who like to push the envelope and come with a fully integrated control microphone, which allows easy access while navigating tough terrain. We can't wait to start seeing these in the wild!"

The Midland MXT275J and MXT575J Jeep MicroMobile Two-Way Radios offer higher power and improved performance leveraging the GMRS band, which is the preferred choice for trail communications. Notably, the FCC legal limit for GMRS communication is 50 Watts, which puts the MXT575J at the absolute max legal limit, providing optimal coverage and clarity.

The Jeep-branded MicroMobiles have 18 and 50 Watts output charging power respectively, providing rapid charging capabilities for any device. Both units also allow users to tune into the NOAA Weather Radio to get weather updates from the National Weather Service.

Both new radios come with a specially designed microphone, the Midland MA75J Jeep MicroMobile Microphone. The MA75J can also be purchased separately and paired with the legacy MXT275 and MXT575 MicroMobile products to easily make them Jeep-branded.1 Ideal for dashboards with limited space, the MA75J ensures seamless control and accessibility, allowing drivers to effortlessly manage their communication system while maintaining focus on the road ahead.

Both radios are currently available for online purchase at www.midlandusa.com and approved retailers. The MXT275J will retail for $179.99 and the MXT575J for $419.99. The MA75J microphone will be available soon and retail for $59.99.
