  • Device voice controls are calibrated for sensitivity so they work in loud environments
  • Adaptive wind noise mitigation automatically turns on in windy conditions for better audio intelligibility


MOTOTRBO Ion can be adapted with accessories that are purpose-built to make your fleet easier to use and even more capable, especially in loud environments. RSM and other accessories let you quickly reach and use your radio, without the extra steps needed to unlock smart devices. And you have the flexibility to choose from our trusted line of next-generation accessories or third party manufacturers.


Ion’s standard batteries last an entire shift so you can keep your devices in the field for longer. They are also interchangeable, so you can switch out batteries between shifts and get your devices back in the field without waiting for a recharge. Extended-life batteries are also available to help you get even more out of your MOTOTRBO Ion fleet.


As an intrinsically safe device, you can use MOTOTRBO Ion in any environment without the risk of ignition or fi re. It’s the only touchscreen radio that is intrinsically safe.


MOTOTRBO Ion’s antenna is shorter and more flexible than other MOTOTRBO antennas, making it more comfortable to wear and easier to use without snagging on clothing — all without compromising its range.


You can use MOTOTRBO Ion with confidence in environments that smartphones can’t handle. The Gorilla Glass 3 touchscreen is inherently rugged for excellent impact resilience. A unique structural support system further cushions the display and internal components, providing superb shock absorption. Plus you can count on the screen to work in the toughest conditions.
