    Its possible, I don't deal with xtl remote hardware much so I don't recall if the o3 takes a different CHIB or not. As far as the firmware, you would have to convince the radio it was a 5k first. Thats all the help with the software side you will find here, sorry.

    Default Converting XTL2500 remote to handheld unit

    Hello! I just read this thread and I would like to inquire about possibly converting a remote mount XTL2500 to a radio controlled by a handheld mic. Is this possible? I believe the mic part number is PMLN4808B?

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up

    Motorola doesn't support use of the O3 head on an XTL2500. It's XTL5000 or APX only.

    That being said, I believe someone on this board, or batlabs had successfully mated the two.

    It would be easier to turn your 2500 into a 5000, though. As far as how to do that - Google is your friend.
