Anytone AT-D878UVII Plus DMR Dual-band Handheld transceiver has a1.77 inch color TFT display.  Up to 7w output power for those long range contacts. It has been upgraded 500,000 database contact List, which is 300,000 more then the previous models, and 4,000 memory channels. There are 250 zones, and up to 250 memories per zone.

The front face lets you program VFO and memory channels so you can change frequencies and program repeaters on the fly. There is an easy to use interface and programming software(downloaded) for those times when you are loading in a lot of memories at once.

The 878UVII includes DMR roaming, and a Bluetooth button with Velcro strap that fits the steering wheel nicely. The Bluetooth is compatible with many newer car entertainment systems, so you can hear through your car speakers. The volume and channel knobs are serrate for easier adjustments.

<script>This is clearly a DNR radio , but it works on analog too. This eliminates the need to carry two handhelds. It operates up to 35 hours with the large capacity 3100 mAh battery.

The Anytone 878 has a solid feel in my hand. The TFT display is nice but I would like it larger, or at least have larger text. The antenna is like a normal flexible ducky, but with the SMA connectors reversed.

I find it loud enough for average situations but is hard to hear in noisy areas. It has good sound quality and is very clear, especially on DMR. I have not tried to connect it to my trucks audio system. The remote PTT button works well.

The Radioddity GD-88 was made to closely resemble the 878, but I do not think it can stand toe to toe with it on performance. Battery life is excellent, and it holds the charge for weeks without recharging. I am not a fan of most of the Anytone line, but the UV878 is a winner.
