Note: The Motorola DEP450 charger Is optional when ordering

Motorola DEP450 Charging Options

When purchasing the Motorola DEP450, you can chose to buy the radio with a single charger. However, if you are planning on buying a Motorola PMLN6589 6-way charger, you can chose to buy the DEP450 without a single charger.

It’s important to note that if you do need a single charger, it’s much cheaper to buy a single charger with the Motorola DEP450 as it’s more expensive to buy a Motorola DEP450 single charger at a later date.

Earpiece, Headset, Microphone Options

The Motorola DEP450 is able to be used with an earpiece, headset or remote speaker microphone. The DEP450 has the M1 2-pin accessory connector meaning that all audio accessories are very cost-effective. Radiotronics offers both genuine Motorola and aftermarket audio accessories.


  • Analogue & Digital: Get all the benefits of digital, including better voice quality, better range and better battery life. However, the Motorola DEP450 can also operate in analogue mode meaning you can retain compatibility with your existing radio fleet.
  • Transmit Interrupt Capability (decode only): Enables a supervisor to interrupt a DEP 450 user to deliver critical communication exactly when and where it’s needed.
  • Dual Capacity Direct Mode: The incredible power of 2-slot TDMA DMR, the DEP450 allows you to double your capacity. You can now have 2 DMR channels per every 12.5 kHz frequency/channel – and you don’t need a repeater to achieve this.
  • IP54 Rated: Dust-resistant and water-resistant, so you can work with confidence in partially dusty or wet environments.

Motorola DEP450 Programming

If you already have an ACMA licence, Radiotronics can supply the Motorola DEP450 programmed for you to use right out of the box. However, there are some features which might require require additional programming. If you would prefer, you can program the your radio yourself using the optional programming software.

Whichever you choose, programming is always FREE from Radiotronics.

Motorola DEP450 is compatible with both MOTOTRBO 2.0 CPS or Radio Management Software. The simplest programming solution is MOTOTRBO 2.0 CPS. However, if you’re feeling more daring or you have a larger fleet, you can use the Motorola Solutions MOTOTRBO Radio Management software which enables radios to be programmed in batches to a standardised template.

You will also need a programming cable:

  1. Paul

    What can I say about this radio? We have had our radios for a few months and they’re great! We have some expensive 3M Peltor headsets that plug into our old analogue radios. We had one condition. Whatever radio Radiotronics recommneded had to work with our existing headsets. Radiotronics recommended the Motorola DEP450 and it’s exactly as they described it. I would recommend Radiotronics to anyone.

  2. Rasheed

    We have a number of Motorola GP3188 radios and were looking to add to our fleet. When we approached Radiotronics they recommended the DEP450 as it shares the same batteries, chargers and earpeice socket. That means we can use all of our old accessories. Our company is very pleased with the Motorola DEP450 and highly recommend Radiotronics.

  3. Stephen

    We need to upgrade to our old analogue two-way radios and the DEP450 was recommended for it’s excellent audio quality. What an improvement on our old analogue radios.

  4. Chaz

    We have been using motorola radios for years and have the GP328. Radiotronics advised us it was cancelled and the DEP450 has replaced it. It looks a little different but seems to work just as well. Only grumble is that the DEP450 doesn’t take any of the GP328 earpieces. But they work together fine.
