Connect Plus radios

Postby tdats » Mon Sep 25, 2017 6:17 am

Does anyone other than M make radios that will work on a Connect Plus radio system? We are unhappy with the discontinuation of the 6550 portables and not happy with how connect plus is implemented in the 7550 portables. (For the people that did not know, Connect Plus requires option card programming in the M radios and separate software to do this programming, not the normal radio software) Unfortunately in my case, system wise we are stuck with the connect plus infrastructure at the moment. To save chatter here, I have posts in the Trbo Subscriber 2.0 radios thread with our issues with the 7550 radios.
Thanks!

As far as I know, Connect Plus is a Motorola proprietary DMR implementation, thus no other manufacturers make radios for it. I could be wrong, but I don't think I am.

Now would be a good time to look at transitioning to some other brand / format, Mother M just sent out a notification of cancellation on the Connect Plus line of radios / infrastructure.

I just found that on MOL.... I guess I'll be having a chat with the owner of the system we are using in the next couple of days. Thanks for all the feedback!

The migration path is Capacity Max. In fact there is now a Connect Plus / Capacity Max bridge to assist in migration.

But when you look at the costs I suspect it will be some number of years before the large "carriers" make the move --

An I believe M has a ten year support plan for these systems. Although that may be off by a few years plus or minus.
