APX 7500 Spec Sheet

The APX 7500 offers a complete control head portfolio with 3 options available. The Handheld Control Head, Standard Control Head and Integrated Control Head give users the flexibility to choose the control head that best meets organizational needs. Designed with mission critical technology, the radio amplifies public safety officials' ability to keep the community safer than ever before.

APX 7500 multi-band radios were designed to work with ASTRO 25, Project 25 standards-based communications networks. With integrated voice and data capabilities, the ASTRO 25 network offers improved communications between
multiple agencies, as well as neighboring communities, from everyday operations
to disaster response.


APX 7500 operates in multiple bands and meets P25 public safety specifications for seamless multiagency collaboration. 2-In-1 Radio APX 7500 operates in 700/800 MHz & VHF and acts as two radios in one. Motorola has reduced the amount of equipment service shops must install and maintain.


The APX mobile radio was designed to maintain the same mounting foot prints as the XTL. The high power trunnion was completely redesigned for ease of installation, providing installation guides and rails, better engagement into the tray and enhanced handle grip.

Advanced Emergency Functionality

Motorola offers several Advanced Emergency features to assist in keeping mission critical users safe. When an emergency call is initiated; other users in a talk group will hear an alert and see the ID in their display. The Emergency Keep Alive feature
ensures your emergency call is not dropped even if the radio power switches OFF. The Emergency with Voice to Follow feature allows communication without
pressing the PTT button if needed.

Rugged Durability

The APX 7500 mobile radio meets IP55 water-intrusion ratings for driving rain giving you the confidence that your mobile will continue performing even if exposed
to water.

APX is backwards and forwards compatible with Motorola SmartNet®, SmartZone® and ASTRO 25 systems and offers future expandability for developing technologies.


APX 7500 supports P25 Phase 1 and is upgradable to support P25 Phase 2 to offer better spectrum utilization and double voice capacity using existing frequencies.

Data Capability

The APX 7500 is Integrated Voice & Data ready. With the ability to send and receive data through your trunking or conventional system infrastructure, APX is ideal for text messaging and can be used as a modem. Programming over Project 25 (POP25)
allows the radio configuration to be accessed and updated over the air. APX also comes equipped with an integrated GPS Receiver for outdoor location tracking.

FLASHport™ Software

The APX 7500 has built-in FLASHport capability to support customizing the radio with new software.

Customer Programming Software

The APX radios utilize new and enhanced CPS software that is user friendly and provides increased speed and efficiency. The Built-in Codeplug Comparator allows easy diagnostics of codeplug differences.

Motorola’s APX mobile radios deliver exceptional performance by combining advanced voice and data technology with legendary Motorola quality. The innovative rugged design and safety-focused functionality is based on extensive user input and innovative engineering – continuing in the Motorola tradition of translating engineering breakthroughs into real world advantages to deliver the best two-way radios in the field.
