I was wondering if they still make any off the shelf bubble pack radios that are repeater capable. My parents need new radios but my mom isnt tech savy enough to use a part 90 radio.

It is a tiny 16 channel, 4 watt HT, programmable with Chirp and a programming cable.

actually the R stands for repeater capable. I bought this radio and tested on our repeater, I returned them for other reasons.

Retevis RT76 is as close to that as you're going to get.
You'll have to do all the programming up front (BaoFeng cable) but after that, it's just a knob with thirty channels, the last eight of which are repeater inputs.

Alternately, it's a bit more expensive than straight bubble packs, but definitely repeater capable, is the wouxun kg-805g. once it's set up, basic operation can be as simple as twist one knob for volume, the other knob for channels, and push to talk, and they're available from the on-site store.
