DMR High Tier Hand-held and Vehicle Radios

SL 7000, XPR 7000/3000, SL3500e, XPR 5000/2500 Series Affected

Motorola Solutions changed their MOTOTRBO software support policy for the professional tier radios earlier this year. Essential Services premium software features and standard depot repair warranty for new radios are now provided for five years. It is possible to opt out of the 5 year depot warranty and select 2 years for a small savings.

This change started with SL/XPR 7000 series, XPR 3000 series, SL3500e, XPR 2500, and XPR 5000 series with v2.9 firmware. Premium software features are now licensed for 5 years with a new radio or until any radio shipped prior to v2.9 is still under warranty. Older radios will not accept firmware updates after v2.8 without a licensing fee.

The CP200d, SL300, EVX-261, EVX-S24, CM200d, and CM300d DMR digital radio models are not affected by this change. They could be added in the future but so far it is not clear if it will ever happen.

List of Motorola MOTOTRBO Premium Software Features

Most premium software features were purchased a la carte in the past. The most popular are Bluetooth, Text-to-Speech, and Man-Down. Wi-Fi is not a premium feature and must be purchased separately. Below is a graphic showing the complete list of premium MOTOTRBO software features.

Device and Infrastructure MOTOTRBO Software Features

What Happens With Existing MOTOTRBO Radio Firmware?

Our standard practice for repairs and preventive maintenance includes upgrading every radio to the latest firmware. We are no longer able to go past v2.8 unless the radio is still under warranty. Starting with v2.10 radios will not accept the new firmware (and new features) unless a license was purchased for the serial number of the radio.

Motorola Technical Notification: APX/PCR RSM Cable Failures

APX XPR Shoulder Mic with coiled cordRemote speaker-microphones cables for APX P25 and XPR MOTOTRBO DMR series radios could experience jacket failures when stressed. A manufacturing change in jacket material caused the problem.

When the cord is stressed the cable could tear or fray and expose the internal wiring. As a result, RSM’s that show failures will be replaced for up to 24 months after purchase.

Symptoms and Root Cause of the Cord FailuresCoiled Cord small tear and fraying example

The cord failure is shown in the image. The failure typically occurs at the RSM head or radio connector end or both, but can also occur in cable middle section.

Front and back mic cable routingRadio users who prefer to route the mic cord behind their back and stress the cable are more likely to experience the problem. Motorola recommends to dress the coil section so it
does not get caught on uniform accessories for optimal RSM service life.

Motorola Remote Speaker-Microphone Models Affected

Motorola is upgrading the cable jacket material in the near future. RSM’s with the new cable will include an “L” in the model suffix when shipped.

Below are the RSM’s identified in the Motorola Technical Notification (MTN):
