Why choose GMRS over FRS?
GMRS repeater capable. GM-5R, the long distance walkie talkies, can take advantage of GMRS repeaters to get a more powerful, further-ranging signal. — This is not an option with FRS radios.
GMRS radios allow Wide-band FM to provide a louder and clearer signal than the FRS radios restricted to Narrow-band FM with a lower power rating.
The GM-5R provides more selectable channels than FRS radios, more CTCSS and DCS tone options to reduce unwanted signals.
