INNOVATIVE FEATURES,
INCREASED FUNCTIONALITY
With MOTOTRBO’s expanded portfolio of digital
radios, you can match the right device to the right
worker – in any industry, environment or position. So
whether your personnel are supervising a production
line or spearheading a special event, covering a
crowded stadium or completing a repair, there’s a
MOTOTRBO with features made for them.
Intelligent Audio
MOTOTRBO’s radio volume automatically adjusts to
fit the environment’s noise level. Now workers won’t
have to adjust radio volume to avoid missing a call in
loud settings or disturb others when they move into
quiet places.
Integrated Bluetooth
Bluetooth® audio provides voice communication with
exceptional clarity and the freedom to move without
wires. Ideal for employees who must communicate
discreetly or whose jobs necessitate hands-free
communication.
Integrated GPS
Track vehicles and people effortlessly with integrated
location tracking. Unlike other GPS-capable radios,
the MOTOTRBO module is incorporated in the handset
so there’s no additional equipment to attach, carry or
maintain.
Instant text messaging
Quickly and easily share information when voice
isn’t an option. Text messaging is ideal for sending
messages that don’t need an immediate response,
or when voice conversation could be disruptive.
Messages are easy to read with large, full color, high
resolution screens.
Work order ticket management
See what true efficiency can be. The SL1K portable
eliminates a number of steps to read work order
tickets, with a five-line display that presents data at a
glance – saving time and eliminating multiple scrolls
through screens.
MOTOTRBO MAKES IT HAPPEN
Our expanded portfolio of MOTOTRBO radios, repeaters, accessories, data applications, software and
services is remastering digital communications and redefining everything a two-way radio can be. Whether
workers are making deliveries, managing guests, repairing roads or restoring power lines, the right radio can
change the way employees collaborate and transform an enterprise.
