Motorola RMU to CP100 Radio True to size Comparison

Posted by Two Way Direct on 16th Nov 2022


   As a customer, it is not always easy to fully grasp the difference between two-way radio options unless they are right in front of you. That is why Two Way Direct has created "True-to-Size" visuals in order for our customers to be able to better compare the physical differences along with the technical variance between products.

   Today, we will be focusing on the Motorola RMU and CP100D models.


   The Motorola RMU2040 is a basic analog two-way radio, which has been a very popular and cost-effective option among many different industries for years. With 2 watts of power and 4 channels, the RMU2040 operates on 89 exclusive frequencies and is FCC Narrowband ready. This rugged radio has definitely served its purpose, however, many are choosing to upgrade to systems, which offer both analog and/or digital technology.

Dimensions: 7.38" x 2.25" x 1.5"


   The Motorola RMU2080D is a step up from the RMU2040 model in that it possesses 2 watts of power and 8 channels to operate on. This model offers a easy-to-read display along with 4 programmable buttons and, like the RMU2040, it is a very rugged analog option and has the same dimensions.

Dimensions: 7.38" x 2.25" x 1.5"


   The Motorola CP100D two-way radio is slightly more different than the RMU two-way radios in that it is smaller in size. With 4-5 watts of power and 16 channels, this handheld not only offers greater output than these larger models, but it also offers analog/digital technology along with extras such as text messaging capabilities and connectivity with irrigation systems. Remotely activate your water sprinkler and irrigation systems using digital DTMF codes on your two-way radio keypad.
