The Anytone D578UV Pro and Plus has an almost ideal mix of commercial robustness and ham focused features and capabilities: 


  • Very well made physically, Great audio
  • Full Tier 2 MotoTRBO compability
  • VHF/UHF capability with dual receive on either DMR or FM
  • VFO or channel mode on each sub-band
  • Integral GPS will work with APRS through DMR AND traditional analog
  • Roaming across DMR channel/talkgroups (this is very neat)
  • GPS based channel/zone roaming
  • Fully programmable soft keys
  • Can operate most functions using only the mic keypad


  • Radio can be daunting to program initially due to the many additional options/capabilities combined with a fairly cryptic CPS
  • Newer functions such as the BT-01 mic require detailed update of 5 different firmwares. Well documented, but must be done
  • Some capabilities cannot be run at the same time such as APRS and GPS roaming
