    Default XTL1500 MX TO XTL5000 v16

    Hello all:

    I currently have an XTL1500 MX 7/800 and am looking to upgrade it to the XTL5000. Does it have the same flex cable? It is currently dash-mounted and wouldn't hurt to radio mount it, but I heard that's pretty expensive.

    Also, if the XTL5000 control head is firmware v16 and my rf unit is v12, will that work? I don't have an iButton refresh key.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I would love to hear more on converting an XTL1500 into either a 2500 or 5000 as this would be the least expensive route for me to obtain a good ASTRO25 mobile. Anyone here done it? If so, how?

    Unfortunately the conversion of an XTL, which is still a radio currently supported by Motorola, cannot be discussed here as it breaches the rules of the forum; as you pointed out yourself, converting a cheaper 1500 to a more expensive 5000 deprives them of income.

    Although the way Motorola are going it may not be supported too much longer!

    I should have remembered that fact and I apologize. Also, I've seen that discontinue support list...wowzers!
