    Default Convertacom Mobile Adapter Model Numbers for Harris P5500 and P7200 handheld radios

    I have a Harris P5500 which I would like to get a couple of Convertacom mobile adapter units for that I can install in my two different vehicles so that the a mobile hand microphone can be used and the radio can have a connection to an external antenna and possibly an amplifier. If someone can provide any model numbers for units of this type it would be very helpful. (I'm not looking for info on the units which only perform battery charging of the radio.)

    I also have a P7200 radio and looking for the same information for a mobile adapter unit for it as well.

    Post Enhanced Vehicular Chargers

    Vehicular Chargers and Enhanced Vehicular Chargers were offered for the following model portable radios:

    This includes with and without a remote control head attached to the EVC:

    PE(remote head not supported)
    MPE(remote head not supported)
    MPS(remote head not supported)
    MPX(remote head not supported)
    M-PA(remote head not supported)
    M-PD(remote head not supported)
    M-RK
    LPE-50(remote head not supported)
    LPE-200(remote head not supported)
    J700P
    P5100
    P7100

    The P5200 & P7200, even though being the same form fit factor (case size, battery, etc.) are NOT supported in the EC or EVC for the J700p/P5100/P7100, as the firmware in the radio never included the support for this mode of operation.


    The following radios can utilize the simple 12 VDC battery charger for vehicle use, such as the VC-3000 and VC-4000 models:

    PCS
    P5300
    P5400
    P5500
    P7300
    XG-75
    UNITY XG-100p
    XL-200


    I hope this clarifies this.

    Gatorbait3014,


    Thank you so much for such a detailed response to my questions and all of the great information. It looks like I am totally out of luck for what I'm looking to do, but at least I didn't have to go through the process of purchasing units that looked like they might have worked only to find out that the radios aren't compatible.
