Stay in touch this holiday season with your own set of consumer two-way radios

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Dec. 2, 2013 - This holiday season, Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:MSI) offers an affordable gift for adventurous kids that combines fun with functionality. The Motorola Talkabout® MG160 series two-way radios are ideal for elementary age kids that love to play outside and explore, but still need to check in with mom and dad back home.

The Motorola Talkabout MG series of two-way radios are compact and easy-to-use by the entire family. The pocketsize design is perfect for smaller hands and easily slides into a pocket or can be attached with easy to use belt clips. The radios provide reliable communications for outdoor adventures or weekend camping trips, at the neighborhood park or even the annual family vacation to a theme park, and give children the independence they crave without cell phone fees.

Simple to use, kids can easily press the push-to-talk (PTT) button and immediately communicate with their friends or family members. And with the call tone feature, mom and dad can get their child’s attention before they start talking. The MG series radios also feature a keypad lock, which prevents settings from being inadvertently changed.

  • 22 channels allows users to choose their own interference-free channel
  • Battery-powered with three AAA batteries (not included) and an audible low-battery alert

  • One call tone – enables users to alert others that you want to talk
  • Scan – searches programmed list of channels to find transmissions
  • Keypad lock – helps users avoid accidentally changing the operation of the radio
