    Default XPR2500 or CP200d, anyone?

    Pictures and a user manual for the XPR2500, thanks to our good friends at the FCC.

    The XPR2500 looks like a mobile companion to the XPR3500. The CP200d looks like a boring as bat**** CP series radio.

    I would not be surprised if these aren't some one-off or kissing cousin of the Vertex "Everge" value line DMR radios also released this quarter

    These are probably the same chassis. This is the looked for replacement for the CDM.

    IIRC, this is simply the CP200 and CM300 mobiles reworked to include the most basic of digital features. No IPSC/trunking/GPS/etc. Just basic analog/digital conventional. It's aimed to replace the CP200 and CM300 and perpetuate the digital migration for those on an extremely tight budget. I'd heard word of these coming out a couple of months ago.

    These are Motorola's "Entry Level" digital radios, while eVerge is Vertex's "Entry Level" stuff. Still separate.

    As far as it being a replacement for the CDM series, I don't think so. I think the XPR series is the CDM replacement, the CP/CM digital radios you see here are a replacement for the Commercial Series (CP/CM).

    As you can see, both the CP/CM "d" series radios appear to allow accessories from their predecessors to be reused.

    I believe the XPR 2500 will allow trunking/IPSC, being the "low tier" XPR series radio.

    Do you think they are folding both lines into a single XPR line? Basic analog XPRs and CPd's replacing CM/PM and higher tier XPRs replacing CDM/HT's? This would make sense folding both older lines into a unified product line like the XPR, using the lower tier Vertex clones chassis for the low end, and the higher tier using the other chassis.

    So I attended the online seminar for these new radios. It looks like it works out like this:

    CP200d/CM200d: Basic single-site digital features. No trunking, no IPSC, just basic digital voice. Designed to replace the "Commercial Series".

    XPR 2500: Entry level mobile capable of trunking/IPSC, but not Connect Plus. Probably designed to replace the CDM series.
