For all you GMRS types- the new midland MXT575 is out.


This is the 50 watt version of the MXT275. The 275 is 15 watt (This is the one I run in my vehicle and I have never had an issue with it), but I guess if you need all that power, here is an option. The 275/575 allows you to remote mount the head unit and the controls are on the handset for hidden set-up (if that's your thing).
There are some issues with the Midland approach to GMRS (split-tones, band width etc), but its an easy radio to use out of the box and it will do most everything you want to do for trail communications. Just thought I would flag it.

I got the 575 and am trying to figure out where to install it. It's much bigger than the 275. FWIW it does split-tones and wideband.

There is supposed to be room above the glove-box, but its a tight fit. A lot of folks like to put remote units under a seat, but be careful with water and such.
