IP Site Connect
This feature allows your radio to extend conventional
communication beyond the reach of a single site, by
connecting to different available sites which are
connected via an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and
into the range of another, it connects to the new site's
repeater to send or receive calls/data transmissions.
Depending on your settings, this is done
automatically or manually.
Additional Radio Controls in Non-Connect Plus Mode
Repetitive Tone
If the radio is set to do this automatically, it scans
through all available sites when the signal from the
current site is weak or when the radio is unable to
detect any signal from the current site. It then locks
on to the repeater with the strongest Received Signal
Strength Indicator (RSSI) value.
In a manual site search, the radio searches for the
next site in the roam list that is currently in range (but
which may not have the strongest signal) and locks
on to it.
Note: Each channel can only have either Scan or
Roam enabled, not both at the same time.
Channels with this feature enabled can be added to a
particular roam list. The radio searches the channel(s)
in the roam list during the automatic roam operation
to locate the best site.
A roam list supports a maximum of 16 channels
(including the Selected Channel).
Note: You cannot manually add or delete an entry to
the roam list. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.

Capacity Plus
Additional Radio Controls in Non-Connect Plus Mode
Capacity Plus is a single-site trunking configuration of
the MOTOTRBO radio system, which uses a pool of
channels to support hundreds of users and up to 254
Groups. This feature allows your radio to efficiently
utilize the available number of programmed channels
while in Repeater Mode.
You hear a negative indicator tone if you try to access
a feature not applicable to Capacity Plus via a
programmable button press.
Your radio also has features that are available in
conventional digital mode, IP Site Connect, Capacity
Plus and Linked Capacity Plus. However, the minor
differences in the way each feature works does NOT
affect the performance of your radio.
Check with your dealer or system administrator for
more information on this configuration.
Linked Capacity Plus
40
Linked Capacity Plus is a multi-site multi-channel
trunking configuration of the MOTOTRBO radio
system, combining the best of both Capacity Plus and
IP Site Connect configurations.
English
Linked Capacity Plus allows your radio to extend
trunking communication beyond the reach of a single
site, by connecting to different available sites which
are connected via an Internet Protocol (IP) network. It
also provides an increase in capacity by efficiently
utilizing the combined available number of
programmed channels supported by each of the
available sites.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and
into the range of another, it connects to the new site's
repeater to send or receive calls/data transmissions.
Depending on your settings, this is done
automatically or manually.
If the radio is set to do this automatically, it scans
through all available sites when the signal from the
current site is weak or when the radio is unable to
detect any signal from the current site. It then locks
on to the repeater with the strongest Received Signal
Strength Indicator (RSSI) value.
In a manual site search, the radio searches for the

If enabled, this feature helps to prevent
eavesdropping by unauthorized users on a channel
by the use of a software-based scrambling solution.
The signaling and user identification portions of a
transmission are not scrambled.
If your radio receives a scrambled call that is of a
different Privacy Key, OR a different Key Value and
Key ID, you will either hear a garbled transmission
(Basic Privacy) or nothing at all (Enhanced Privacy).
If the radio has a privacy type assigned, the Home
screen shows the Secure or Unsecure icon, except
when the radio is sending or receiving an Emergency
call or alarm.
Your radio must have privacy enabled on the channel
to send a privacy-enabled transmission, although this
is not a necessary requirement for receiving a
transmission. While on a privacy-enabled channel,
the radio is still able to receive clear (unscrambled)
transmissions.
The LED lights up solid green while the radio is
transmitting and blinks green rapidly when the radio is
receiving an ongoing privacy-enabled transmission.
Your radio supports two types of privacy:
•
•
•
•
Basic Privacy
Enhanced Privacy.
Only ONE of the privacy types above can be
assigned to the radio.
To unscramble a privacy-enabled call or data
transmission, your radio must be programmed to
have the same Privacy Key (for Basic Privacy), OR
the same Key Value and Key ID (for Enhanced
Privacy) as the transmitting radio.

Bluetooth Operation
Advanced Features in Non-Connect Plus Mode
This feature allows you to use your radio with a
Bluetooth enabled device (accessory) via a wireless
Bluetooth connection. Your radio supports both
Motorola and COTS (Commercially available Off-TheShelf) Bluetooth-enabled devices.
Bluetooth operates within a range of 10 meters (32
feet) line of sight.This is an unobstructed path
between your radio and your Bluetooth-enabled
device.
It is not recommended that you leave your radio
behind and expect your Bluetooth-enabled device to
work with a high degree of reliability when they are
separated.
At the fringe areas of reception, both voice and tone
quality will start to sound “garbled” or “broken”. To
correct this problem, simply position your radio and
Bluetooth-enabled device closer to each other (within
the 10-meter/32 feet defined range) to reestablish
clear audio reception. Your radio’s Bluetooth function
has a maximum power of 2.5 mW (4 dBm) at the 10meter/32 feet range.
122
English
Your radio can support up to 3 simultaneous
Bluetooth connections with Bluetooth-enabled
devices of unique types. For example, a headset, a
scanner, and a PTT-Only Device (POD). Multiple
connections with Bluetooth-enabled devices of the
same type are not supported.

Auto Fallback
Auto Fallback is a system feature that allows you to
continue to make and receive non-emergency calls
on the selected Group Contact in the event of certain
types of Connect Plus system failures.
If one of these failures occurs, your radio attempts to
roam to a different Connect Plus site. This search
process may result in your radio finding an operable
Connect Plus site, or it may result in your radio finding
a “Fallback Channel” (if your radio is enabled for Auto
Fallback). A Fallback Channel is a repeater that is
normally part of an operable Connect Plus site, but is
currently unable to communicate with either its site
controller or the Connect Plus network. In Fallback
mode, the repeater operates as a single digital
repeater. Auto Fallback Mode supports nonemergency Group Calls only. No other call types are
supported in Fallback Mode.
Indications of Auto Fallback Mode
Advanced Features in Connect Plus Mode
Advanced Features in Connect Plus
Mode
When your radio is using a Fallback channel, you
hear the intermittent “Fallback Tone” approximately
once every 15 seconds (except while transmitting).
The display periodically shows a brief message,
“Fallback Channel”. Your radio only permits PTT on
the selected Group Contact (Group Call, Multigroup
Call, or Site All Call). It does not allow you to make
other types of calls.
Making/Receiving Calls in Fallback Mode
Note:
Calls are heard only by radios that are monitoring the
same Fallback channel and selected to the same
Group. Calls are not networked to other sites or other
repeaters.
Emergency voice calls or Emergency Alerts are not
available in Fallback mode. If you press the
emergency button in Fallback mode, the radio
provides an invalid key press tone. Display-equipped
radios also show the message, “Feature not
available”.
Private (radio to radio) calls are not available in
Fallback mode. If you attempt a call to a private
contact, you will receive a denial tone. At this point
171
English
you should select a desired group contact. Other nonsupported calls include Remote Monitor, Call Alert,
Radio Check, Radio Enable, Radio Disable, Text
messaging, Location Updates, and packet data calls.
Advanced Features in Connect Plus Mode
Enhanced Traffic Channel Access (ETCA) is not
supported in Auto Fallback mode. If two or more radio
users press PTT at the same time (or at almost the
same time), it is possible that both radios transmit
until PTT is released. In this event, it is possible that
none of the transmissions will be understood by
receiving radios.
Making calls in Fallback mode is similar to normal
functioning. Simply select the group contact you wish
to use (using the radio’s normal channel selection
method), and then press the PTT to start your call. It
is possible that the channel may be in use already by
another group. If the channel is in use, you receive a
busy tone and the display will say “Channel Busy”.
You may select Group, Multi-group or Site All Call
contacts using your radio’s normal channel selection
method. While the radio is operating on the Fallback
Channel, the Multigroup operates just like other
Groups. It is only heard by radios that are currently
selected to the same Multi-group.
172
English
Returning to Normal Operation
If the site returns to normal trunking operation while
you are in range of your Fallback repeater, your radio
automatically exits Auto Fallback mode. You hear a
registration “beep” when the radio successfully
registers. If you are in the range of an operable site
(that is not in Fallback mode), you may press the
Roam Request button (if programmed for your radio)
to force your radio to search for and register on an
available site. If no other site is available, your radio
returns to Auto Fallback mode after searching is
complete. If you drive out of coverage of your
Fallback repeater, your radio enters Search mode
(display indicates “Searching”).

Editing the Scan List
Note: If the scan list entry happens to be the radio’s
currently selected group, the radio listens for activity
on this group regardless of whether the list entry
currently shows a check mark or not. Whenever a
radio is not in a call, the radio listens for activity on its
Selected Group, Multigroup, the Site All Call, and its
Default Emergency Revert Group (if configured for
one). This operation cannot be disabled. If Scan is
enabled the radio will also listen for activity on
enabled Zone Scan List members.
Your scan list determines which groups can be
scanned. The list is created when your radio is
programmed. If your radio has been programmed to
allow you to edit the scan list, you can,
•
Enable/disable scan for individual groups on the
list.
•
Add and Remove the scan members from the Add
Member menu. Refer to Add or Delete a Group via
the Add Members Menu on page 178.

You can add, or edit subscriber IDs for Connect Plus
Contacts. Deleting subscriber IDs can only be
performed by your dealer.
Note: If the Radio joins a call for a Zone Scan List
member from a different Zone and Call Hang Timer

respond, you must navigate to the Zone and Channel
of the Scan List Member and start a new call.
If the Privacy feature is enabled on a channel, you
can make a privacy-enabled voice call on that
channel. Only target radios with the same Privacy
Key OR the same Key Value and Key ID as your
radio are able to unscramble the transmission.
There are some circumstances in which you can miss
calls for groups that are in your scan list. When you
miss a call for one of the following reasons, this does
not indicate a problem with your radio. This is a
normal scan operation for Connect Plus.

Emergency Operation
Note:
188
If your radio is programmed for “Silent” or “Silent with
voice” emergency initiation, in most cases it
automatically exits silent operation after the
English
Emergency Call or Emergency Alert is finished. The
exception to this rule is when “Emergency Alert” is the
configured Emergency Mode and “Silent” is the
configured Emergency Type. If your radio is
programmed in this manner, the silent operation
continues until you cancel silent operation by
pressing PTT or the button configured for
“Emergency Off”.
Emergency voice calls and Emergency Alerts are not
supported when operating in Connect Plus Auto
Fallback mode. For more information see the Auto
Fallback on page 171.
An Emergency Alert is used to indicate a critical
situation. You can initiate an Emergency at any time
on any screen display, even when there is activity on
the current channel. Pressing the Emergency button
initiates the programmed Emergency mode. The
programmed Emergency mode may also be initiated
by triggering the optional Man Down feature. The
Emergency feature may be disabled in your radio.
Your dealer can set the duration of a button press for
the programmed Emergency button, except for long
press, which is similar with all other buttons:
•
Short press – Between 0.05 seconds and 0.75
seconds.
Long press – Between 1.00 second and 3.75
seconds.
•
The Emergency button is assigned with the
Emergency On/Off feature. Check with your dealer for
the assigned operation of the Emergency button.
•
•
If short Emergency button short press is assigned
to Emergency On, then Emergency button long
press is assigned to Emergency Off.
If Emergency button short press is assigned to
Emergency On, then Emergency button short
press is assigned to Emergency Off.
Only ONE of the Emergency Modes can be assigned
to the Emergency button per zone. In addition, each
Emergency mode has the following types:
When your radio is selected to a Connect Plus zone,
it supports three Emergency modes:
•
•
•
•
Emergency Call – You must press the PTT button
to talk on the assigned emergency time slot.
Emergency Call with Voice to Follow – For the
first transmission on the assigned emergency time
slot, the microphone is automatically unmuted and
you may talk without pressing the PTT button. The
microphone stays “hot” in this fashion for a time
period programmed into the radio. For subsequent
transmissions in the same Emergency call, you
must press the PTT button.
Emergency Alert – An Emergency Alert is not a
voice call. It is an emergency notification that is
sent to radios that are configured to receive these
alerts. The radio sends an emergency alert via the
control channel of the currently registered site.
The Emergency Alert is received by radios in the
Connect Plus network that are programmed to
receive them (no matter which network site they
are registered to).

Privacy
If enabled, this feature helps to prevent
eavesdropping by unauthorized users on a channel
by the use of a software-based scrambling solution.
The signaling and user identification portions of a
transmission are not scrambled.
208
If your radio receives a scrambled call that is of a
different Key Value and Key ID, you hear nothing at
all (Enhanced Privacy).
If the radio has a privacy type assigned, the Home
screen shows the Secure or Unsecure icon, except
when the radio is sending or receiving an Emergency
call or alarm.
The LED lights up solid green while the radio is
transmitting and blinks green rapidly when the radio is
receiving an ongoing privacy-enabled transmission.
You can access this feature by
•
Pressing the programmed Privacy button to
toggle privacy on or off.
Using the Radio Menu as described by the steps
described next.
Your radio must have privacy enabled on the current
channel selector position to send a privacy-enabled
transmission, although this is not a necessary
requirement for receiving a transmission. While on a
privacy-enabled channel selector position, the radio is
still able to receive clear (unscrambled)
transmissions.
Note: Some radio models may not offer this Privacy
feature. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.
Your radio supports Enhanced Privacy.

Making a Privacy-Enabled (Scrambled) Call
Toggle privacy on using the programmed privacy
button or by using the menu. Your radio must have
the Privacy feature enabled for the currently selected
channel position to send a privacy-enabled
transmission. When privacy is enabled for the
currently selected channel position, all voice
transmissions made by your radio will be scrambled.
This includes Group Call, Multigroup Call, talk-back
during scanned calls, Site All Call, Emergency Call,
and Private Call. Only receiving radios with the same
Key Value and Key ID as your radio will be able to

Bluetooth Operation
This feature allows you to use your radio with a
Bluetooth enabled device (accessory) via a wireless
Bluetooth connection. Your radio supports both
Motorola and COTS (Commercially available Off-TheShelf) Bluetooth-enabled devices.
Bluetooth operates within a range of 10 meters (32
feet) line of sight.This is an unobstructed path
between your radio and your Bluetooth-enabled
device.
It is not recommended that you leave your radio
behind and expect your Bluetooth-enabled device to
work with a high degree of reliability when they are
separated.
At the fringe areas of reception, both voice and tone
quality will start to sound “garbled” or “broken”. To
correct this problem, simply position your radio and
Bluetooth-enabled device closer to each other (within
the 10-meter/32 feet defined range) to reestablish
clear audio reception. Your radio’s Bluetooth function
has a maximum power of 2.5 mW (4 dBm) at the 10meter/32 feet range.
Advanced Features in Connect Plus Mode
The screen automatically returns to the previous
menu.
Your radio can support up to 4 simultaneous
Bluetooth connections with Bluetooth-enabled
devices of unique types. For example, a headset, and
a PTT-Only Device (POD). Multiple connections with
Bluetooth-enabled devices of the same type are not
supported.

Checking for Updates
Connect Plus provides the ability to update certain
files (Option Board Codeplug, Network Frequency
File and Option Board Firmware File) over-the-air.
Note: Check with the dealer or network administrator
to determine whether this feature has been enabled
for your radio.

Request the Connect Plus radio to resume
collecting file packets
If the radio is enabled for Connect Plus over-the-air
file transfer, there may be times when the radio
automatically joins a file transfer without first notifying
the radio user. While the radio is collecting file
packets, the LED rapidly blinks red and the radio
displays the High Volume Data icon on the Home
Screen status bar.
Note: The Connect Plus radio cannot collect file
packets and receive calls at the same time. If you
wish to cancel the file transfer, press and release the
PTT button. This causes the radio to request a call on
the selected Contact Name, and it will also cancel the
file transfer for that radio until the process resumes at
a later time.

Frequency File version or Option Board firmware file
version via a menu option. In addition, display radios
that have been enabled for over-the-air file transfer
can display the version of a "pending file". A "pending
file" is a Frequency File or Option Board firmware file
that the Connect Plus radio knows about via system
messaging, but the radio has not yet collected all of
the file’s packets. If a display Connect Plus radio has
a pending file, the menu provides options to:
There are several things that can make the file
transfer process start again. The first example applies
to all over-the-air file types. The other examples apply
only to the Network Frequency File and Option Board
Firmware File:
•
•
•
The radio system administrator re-initiates the
over-the-air file transfer.
The Option Board's pre-defined timer expires,
which causes the Option Board to automatically
resume the process of collecting packets.
The timer has not yet expired, but the radio user
requests the file transfer to resume via the menu
option.
After the Connect Plus radio finishes downloading all
file packets, it must upgrade to the newly acquired
file. For the Network Frequency File, this is an
automatic process and does not require a radio reset.
For the Option Board Codeplug File, this is an
automatic process that will cause a brief interruption
to service as the Option Board loads the new
codeplug information and re-acquires a network site.
How quickly the radio upgrades to a new Option
241
English
Board firmware file depends on how the radio has
been configured by the dealer or system
administrator. The radio will either upgrade
immediately after collecting all file packets, or it will
wait until the next time that the user turns the radio
on.
Advanced Features in Connect Plus Mode
Note: Check with your dealer or system administrator
to determine how your radio has been programmed.
The process of upgrading to a new Option Board
firmware file takes several seconds, and it requires
the Connect Plus Option Board to reset the radio.
Once the upgrade starts, the radio use will not be
able to make or receive calls until the process is
completed.
