Assuming you have an inexpensive meter designed for CB... Yes, you can use it, it won’t hurt anything. But, no, it won’t give you accurate readings. For GMRS you need an sur meter that operates at UHF frequencies. However, there are meters that operate over a broad range of frequencies. These tend to be more expensive and often require different “slugs” for each frequency range.

I picked up a Diamond SX-200 SWR meter for about $100. It measures SWR, forward, and reflected power just fine my needs. It covers both VHF and UHF so I can use it for ham, commercial, and GMRS I did have to add some adapters to use it with my particular radios, but that is a normal and expected expense.
