The main new features of this radio compared to the AT-D878UV PLUS is the addition of the APRS Rx and more memory for up to 500,000 contacts.

same as the 578 i use. I have 2 878 and use the beans out of them.
Best bang for your bucks!!
Awesome radio from awesome dealer
A great dmr radio, one of the best bang for the buck, the software is fairly easy to figure out and with watching a few YouTube videos programming became easy. There are a lot of features packed into this small package for one radio. The feel and control layout are well thought out, with no issues.
The 878UVII+ is a good upgrade to an already great radio. The expanded memory and APRS RX functionality is promising. Unfortunately they don't have the APRS RX part very well fleshed-out yet. I'm sure they will. It's a pretty rudimentary display (kind of like the original Kenwood D-700). Once they refine the APRS RX functinos (hopefully integrating it with the APRS Beacon so it can "smart beacon", it will earn that 5th star. Meanwhile, it's a great radio, they've updated the menus and CPS and it works as I've come to expect from an AnyTone radio.
I like the memory of Digital Contacts. I like the APRS feature
I am a big fan of the Anytone radios. Bought this one for the Bluetooth and Analog APRS capabilities.
