Mission-Critical Voice & Data. Rooted in Safety
Your radio is your lifeline. APX NEXT® XE is our next step in advancing it. Designed for ruggedness in extreme environments and with our best audio ever. Exaggerated controls now paired with a tough touchscreen that works with or without gloves, in the hottest, wettest, grittiest conditions. SmartConnect keeps you connected even beyond your radio system. The result is a radio that works when you need it, without pause, distraction or doubt.

Effortless Is Always in Reach

APX NEXT XE is designed for effortless usability when everything is on the line. Oversized intuitive controls are easily distinguished by touch. A mission-critical touchscreen makes it fast and easy to operate your radio. ViQi understands a huge range of voice commands, so you can operate the radio with eyes-up awareness. Every interaction is simple, fast and logical. You stay focused on what matters — your call, your crew and your safety.

Bringing New Intelligence To The Point Of Engagement

APX NEXT XE application services bring new intelligence to the field — right into your hands. Additions such as ViQi, SmartMessaging, SmartMapping and SmartLocate rapidly give firefighters vital information, from pinpoint location details to important multimedia to improve situational awareness. And as part of our unique, end-to-end public safety ecosystem, APX NEXT XE data and operations are secure, and new capabilities can be seamlessly added as your needs evolve.

Provision & Update Your Fleet In Minutes, Not Months

APX NEXT XE gives you back time: a cloud-based provisioning system allows you to prepare radios before they arrive. Remote updating keeps radios in the field, with zero touch and zero downtime. MyView Portal provides direct access to subscriptions, warranties and licenses, and a range of services helps you manage your operation. With APX NEXT XE, your ownership experience is streamlined, so your firefighters stay focused and ready.

ViQi Voice Control

Operate your radio using simple voice commands.

While it’s easy to change settings on your APX NEXT™ radio using the traditional hard controls or the touchscreen soft controls, there are situations where you need to keep your eyes up and stay focused on your environment.

Using ViQi Voice Control, you can operate the radio with your voice. From switching channel and zone, to adjusting the volume, to changing your audio profile, all you need to do is press and hold the ViQi button, and speak into the mic.

There are 13 available actions, each accessible using several intuitive commands. With multiple options, you’ll find a ViQi command to suit you.

ViQi Voice Control is optimized for public safety situations, and performs well in high-noise environments. The 3-dot buttons on the APX NEXT radio and RSM are configured as the ViQi button by default. Through RadioCentral™, the ViQi function can be assigned to any other programmable control except the purple “monitor” button.
