About Motorola DM1600

A basic two-way radio solution mainly focused on pure voice communications. The simple alphanumeric display and navigation button gives access to a few extra features mostly useable in digital mode. E.g. the basic menu, contact list and inbox.

The DM1000 series

The most basic vehicle mounted radios in the MOTOTRBO™ family, developed clear and uncomplicated voice communications. That does not mean that Motorola have sacrificed quality, only that the models are limited to the most fundamental features.

They can be shipped as purely analogue versions that match Motorola’s classic CM series. But they can be made digital with a simple software update, providing digital benefits when the organisation is ready to utilize them.

MOTOTRBO™ is a complete range of two-way radio equipment based on the international standard DMR, Digital Mobile Radio. Almost all models can be used in both digital and analogue modes. MOTOTRBO™ is also the world’s most popular series of products for digital two-way radio communications, with millions of users globally.

The digital technology powering MOTOTRBO™ provides noticeably better performance, like improved battery life, increased capacity and best-in-class audio thanks to active noise cancelling. The IP-based architecture also provides support for productivity enhancing applications like control room solutions, positioning services, telemetry, etc.

By being backwards compatible, MOTOTRBO™ infrastructure allows the use of both analogue and digital devices simultaneously which enables analogue users to upgrade their equipment in their own pace.
