When you flip on the device, a last channel memory feature will turn on the last channel you selected before powering off.
While communicating, a built in ANL (automatic noise limiter) improves reception for weak signals, and squelch control further eliminates background noise.

You can power this unit with six AA batteries, complete with a battery life extender feature. To get even more from your batteries, high/low transmit power settings are provided (4 watts and 1 watt, respectively).

Its a pretty decent mobile unit too with the adapter. With an external antenna the range is tremendously improved. My only real complaint is that I wish that there was a way to lock the backlighting on when using the car adapter - this would make it easier to use at night.
The problems with range come with any handheld. I dont see the problem, take any hand held in a car and its range will go way down, But midland is only company that provides you with an external antenna hookup/power cord combined and make your radio the size of most mic's, you cant go wrong. The best you'll get from others is a DC power cable, but no way to connect an external car antenna to it. and they will still be full length.
You could also MOD this unit to pick up 120 channels CB (all you need to do is solder one connection...) if your more experienced, you can mod it to pick up 400 channels (don't believe me, try a search engine and type "Midland CB Mod"...
This scanner is the BEST on the market, and I cant believe the price. Would be nice if it has USB/LSB but hey, you cant get everything. It covers all the bases.
Responding to the negative reviews that say something like "It didn't work at all", I wonder what "at all" means. I suspect some of those people may have tried to use the mobile adapter and the small included whip antenna at the same time. My CB's (I bought 2 of them) didn't get any reception that way without a simple modification. Note: If you're using the battery pack it works fine with the included antenna.
The mobile adapter has two connectors. One connector plugs into the cigarette lighter and another connector is for an external antenna. When the mobile adapter is hooked up (on mine anyway) it's assuming you're using an external antenna so it ignores the included antenna. Without an external antenna hooked up, I wouldn't get any reception. To get it to work I had to put a piece of electrical tape over the terminal for the external antenna. One of the attached pictures shows the yellow electrical tape I used. This way I could use the external power and the included antenna.

It can fit in the arm rest of a car (at least it fits in mine)
It can easily be stored in the glove compartment
It can be used similar to a walkie talkie
Access the 10 NOAA weather radio channels
The battery life is excellent
The range isn't as good as a normal CB but an external antenna can help that
I would (and have) recommend this to my friends.
