APX FW R7.00.05 Released

Postby khw » Tue Feb 14, 2012 5:49 pm

Radio Release Notes – Subscriber Release 7.11.5 Update –
February 2012
APX 7000/7000XE/6000/6000XE/6000Li/4000, 7500/6500/6500Li
New Version: Host/DSP – R07.00.05, CH – R13.00.01, Secure – R01.02.02
Bluetooth Option Board – R03.00.00
Old Version: Host/DSP – R07.00.00, CH – R13.00.00, Secure – R01.02.02
Bluetooth Option Board – R03.00.00
CPS Version: R07.00.00

Important Notes:

Abstract: UHF Range 1 APX6000 needs retune
System Platforms Affected: Any
Special Configurations: APX6000 or APX6000XE with UHF Range 1 capability
Description: Fielded APX6000/6000XE UHF R1 portable units, if shipped with a
firmware version earlier than R06.00.00, when upgraded to firmware version
R06.00.00 or later need to be completely re-tuned. The tuning is needed to assure
the proper operation and spec compliance of the radios. APX6000/6000XE UHF R1
radios shipped from the factory with R06.00.00 or higher will not need any retuning
when future upgrades are applied.

Abstract: FLASH memory reorganization

System Platforms Affected: Any
Special Configurations: N/A
Description: R07.00.00 implemented a reorganization of the FLASH memory in order to
provide memory space for storing downloadable language packs, improve POP25 speed,
and provide additional memory space for future feature development. This
reorganization will affect FLASH upgrade speed and codeplug programming speed. In
general, the download of codeplug/firmware information will be faster, allowing the
user to disconnect the radio from the CPS sooner than in the past, and the radio
will decompress and install the codeplug/firmware independently, without needing to
be connected to the CPS. The radio will need to be allowed time to decompress and
install the codeplug/firmware, during which all normal radio operation will be
suspended, and the radio will display "Updating...". If power is removed during
this process, it will restart upon the next power-up.

Issue Updates:

Abstract: APX Consolette power-up

System Platforms Affected: Any
Special Configurations: N/A
User Symptom: Occasionally, an APX Consolette will require approximately 2x the
normal time to complete the power-up sequence (approx. 16 seconds instead of 8).
Description: This firmware issue has been resolved.

Abstract: Radios slow to unmute or do not unmute when scanning LSM sites

System Platforms Affected: Linear simulcast sites, Conventional and Trunking
Special Configurations: N/A
User Symptom: APX radios may unmute late or not at all when scanning LSM sites.
Calls are received normally when not in scan.
Description: This firmware issue has been resolved.

Abstract: APX6000 may display the wrong GPS date

System Platforms Affected: Any
Special Configurations: GPS in use
User Symptom: When GPS location is viewed on an APX6000, the accompanying date may
be incorrect. It may be a date as much as 19 years in the future. This may occur
if the radio is powered up in a location where there is no GPS coverage.
Description: This firmware issue has been resolved.
