Highlights of the new PD485 include a full-sized keypad, an OLED display, dedicated emergency button and optional Bluetooth and GPS. This compact DMR radio offers customers versatile, professional communication possibilities at a very moderate price.

Weighing just 308 grams and with dimensions of 117 x 55 x 37 mm, the radio is light and user friendly.
