    Default TK-8180 Remote to replace a TK-690 Remote set up

    Hi all, have a vehicle that has a current low band TK-690 in remote head configuration. The vehicle is a real pain to work in, and they need to change this out for a current model UHF. Are the 690 and 8180 series remote cables the same?

    I was thinking if it was, it would be easy to pull the head and chassis of the 690 and replace it with a 8180 remote config. I am not a big kenwood guy, so I don't know all the finer details of the units.

    Thank you, Rob

    Unfortunately no the 8180 uses the KRK10 cable which is a whole remote kit while the x90 series uses the kct22 cable.
