'It's Time to Move On' - Explaining the Cancellations

Tim Clark, Motorola PCR Product Director, Europe and Africa, has issued a statement on the cancellation of the Professional and Commercial series of radios. It reads:

2014 marks an important phase in the evolution to digital as we announce the cancellation of our legacy radio platforms and sharpen our focus on MOTOTRBO to grow our business into the future.

Over the next twelve months we will cancel our Professional Series “GP” and “GM” radios as well as our Commercial Series “CP” and “CM” radios and transition to MOTOTRBO.

For customers who still require analogue functionality, it is important to note that MOTOTRBO radios support a comprehensive set of analogue features, enabling a smooth migration. For cost-conscious customers, we provide an analogue version of the DP1400 MOTOTRBO radio that can be upgraded to digital as required.
