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.
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
33

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

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
Capacity Plus is a single-site trunking configuration of

more information on this configuration.
Linked Capacity Plus
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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).

This feature raises an emergency if there is no user
activity, such as any radio button press or activation
of the channel selector, for a predefined time.
Note: If disabled via the CPS, all Bluetooth-related
features are disabled and the Bluetooth device
database is erased.
Before raising the emergency, when the inactivity
timer expires, the radio warns the user via an audio
indicator.
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.
If there is still no acknowledgement by the user

Bluetooth Operation
Note: This feature is limited to radios with this
function enabled. Check with your dealer or system
administrator for more information.
English
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 re-establish
clear audio reception. Your radio’s Bluetooth function
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.

user manual for more details on your Bluetoothenabled device’s full capabilities.

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) and Phone calls are not
available in Fallback mode. If you attempt a call to a
private contact, you will receive a denial tone. At this
191
English
point you should select a desired group contact.
Other non-supported 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.
192
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.
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”).

English
Scan can be turned on or off from the menu or by
pressing a programmed Scan On/Off button.
This feature functions only when the radio is not
currently involved in a call. If you are presently
listening to a call, your radio cannot scan for other
group calls, and is therefore unaware they are in
progress. Once your call is finished, your radio
returns to the control channel time slot and is able to
scan for groups that are in the scan list.
Turning Scan On or Off
Note: This procedure turns the Scan feature On or

group number or a duplicate group alias to be placed
on a zone scan list (or to be shown as a “scan
candidate”). Thus, the list of “scan candidates”
described in steps 6 and 7 sometimes changes after
adding or deleting a group from the zone scan list.
If your radio has been programmed to allow you to
edit the scan list, you can use the Add Members
menu to add a group to the scan list of the currently
selected zone, or to delete a group from the san list of

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).
Only ONE of the Emergency Modes can be assigned
to the Emergency button per zone. In addition, each
Emergency mode has the following types:

transmission.
Silent with Voice – The same as Silent operation,
except that the radio will also unmute for some

Your radio may be programmed to sound an alert
tone and also display information about the incoming
Emergency. If so programmed, upon receiving the
incoming Emergency, the display shows the
Emergency Details screen with the emergency icon,
the Alias or ID of the radio that requested the
Emergency, the Group Contact being used for the
Emergency, and one additional line of information.
The additional information is the name of the zone
that contains the Group Contact.
At the present time, the radio displays only the most
recently decoded Emergency. If a new Emergency is
received before the prior Emergency is cleared, the
details for the new Emergency replace the details of
the previous Emergency.

by the use of a software-based scrambling solution.
The signaling and user identification portions of a

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)

To unscramble a privacy-enabled call transmission,
your radio must be programmed to have the same

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

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

the 10-meter/32 feet defined range) to re-establish
clear audio reception. Your radio’s Bluetooth function
has a maximum power of 2.5 mW (4 dBm) at the 10meter/32 feet range.
Your radio can support up to 4 simultaneous
Bluetooth connections with Bluetooth-enabled

Any display Connect Plus radio has the ability to
show its current Option Board OTA Codeplug CRC,
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
249
English
Advanced Features in Connect Plus Mode
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:
•
•
•
•
See the version number of the pending file.
See what percentage of packets has been
collected so far.
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.
250
English
•
•
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
Board firmware file depends on how the radio has
been configured by the dealer or system
administrator. The radio will either upgrade
3
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.
