Motorola MOTOTRBO Essential Services & Free Wi-Fi Promo Extended Until 12/30

DMR High Tier Hand-held and Vehicle Radios

SL 7000, XPR 7000/3000, SL3500e, XPR 5000/2500 Series Affected

Motorola Solutions changed their MOTOTRBO software support policy for the professional tier radios earlier this year. Essential Services premium software features and standard depot repair warranty for new radios are now provided for five years. It is possible to opt out of the 5 year depot warranty and select 2 years for a small savings.

This change started with SL/XPR 7000 series, XPR 3000 series, SL3500e, XPR 2500, and XPR 5000 series with v2.9 firmware. Premium software features are now licensed for 5 years with a new radio or until any radio shipped prior to v2.9 is still under warranty. Older radios will not accept firmware updates after v2.8 without a licensing fee.

The CP200d, SL300, EVX-261, EVX-S24, CM200d, and CM300d DMR digital radio models are not affected by this change. They could be added in the future but so far it is not clear if it will ever happen.

List of Motorola MOTOTRBO Premium Software Features

Most premium software features were purchased a la carte in the past. The most popular are Bluetooth, Text-to-Speech, and Man-Down. Wi-Fi is not a premium feature and must be purchased separately. Below is a graphic showing the complete list of premium MOTOTRBO software features.

Device and Infrastructure MOTOTRBO Software Features

What Happens With Existing MOTOTRBO Radio Firmware?

Our standard practice for repairs and preventive maintenance includes upgrading every radio to the latest firmware. We are no longer able to go past v2.8 unless the radio is still under warranty. Starting with v2.10 radios will not accept the new firmware (and new features) unless a license was purchased for the serial number of the radio.

Motorola DTR700 License Free Digital 2-Way Radio Now Shipping

Motorola BatwingsMotorola Solutions digital DTR series 2-way radios have been solving on-site communications problems for hospitality, education, and retail workers for over ten years. The entry-level radio’s low cost, digital features, and no FCC license requirement make this a popular radio choice for first time users. The latest DTR release from Motorola is even better.

DTR700 is Thin, Lightweight, IP54 Rugged, and Has a Color Display

License Free 900 MHz Radio for On-site UseThe new DTR700 has been improved with a rugged IP54 rating, color display, and longer 16.5 hour battery. The 900 MHz frequencies provide better building penetration than VHF or UHF bands.

The DTR700 offers flexible communication options, including one-to-one calling and one-to-many calling. Caller ID, audible or variable call alert, and interference-free voice audio make this a good choice.

DTR700 is compatible with the DTR650, DTR550, and DTR410 legacy radios. All of these models have been cancelled but are still supported by Motorola’s repair depot.  The DTR700 warranty has also been improved to 24 months.

DTR700 Offers Many Accessory Options

The radio uses the same popular 2-pin audio connector as other Motorola DTR, BPR, CLS, RD, and RM model radios. There is a new HKLN4601 surveillance kit with clear acoustic tube and HKLN4604 swivel earpiece that stays outside the ear.  The PMNN4578 2500 mAh battery and PMPN4469 AC charger are new for this radio. There is also a PMPN4465 6 pocket charger that charges spare batteries or radios.

Pricing and more info for the DTR700 can be found on our online store. We also offer a DTR700 Six Pack Bundle complete with HKLN4601 surveillance earpiece accessories. We can help with custom programming, accessory choices, and a formal quote if needed. Contact us at our Dover, Delaware office at 302-734-9250 during normal business hours or use the form below.

Custom Molded Gel Ear Inserts Provide All Day Comfort and More

For Two- Way Radio Surveillance Kits with Acoustic TubesAcoustic Tube With Custom Ear Insert

Radio users who use a wired audio accessory with a mushroom-style ear tip and an acoustic tube would benefit from using a custom gel ear insert. Security, law enforcement, and nursing professionals working in normal noise environments prefer this optional accessory for their 2-way radio.

Compatible with most acoustic tubes, they are more comfortable for long work shifts. They also provide better ambient hearing because there is less blockage of the ear canal. The soft gel is easy to clean and hypo-allergenic.

Available for Left or Right Ear and 3 Sizes for Better Comfort

Small Size For Left Ear Replaces Mushroom Style TipThe earmold must be ordered for the left or right ear – they are not interchangeable. Although the medium size is most popular, there are also small and large versions for each ear.

The standard color is a light pink but we can also supply clear and black. There are also black acoustic tubes for covert operations.
