Motorola GP340Motorola has announced that the very popular Motorola GP340 two way radio is to be discontinued with the replacement being the Motorola DP4400.

Motorola says:

As the migration to MOTOTRBO accelerates, Motorola will be cancelling the following list of models. There will be a transition period after the Last Order Date, during which we will continue to sell cancelled models until stock depletion. This cancellation notice does not affect accessories which we will continue to supply until further notice.

Motorola GP340 has been seen as an industry standard by radio users for many years. However, Motorola Solutions are accelerating their migration to the MOTOTRBO range of radios. Motorola is marketing the Motorola DP4000 series as the official replacement for the GP340.

Motorola Solutions have said that the last order date for the Motorola GP340 is 16th February 2015. However, all orders must be received and confirmed before this date.

Motorola Solutions have been keen to make sure that clients are aware that parts will remain available for at least 5 years following the product cancellation.
