I feel like this is a silly question but haven’t found a solid answer elsewhere. What is the difference between the XG-75M/M7300 and the M7300s besides the date of manufacture? Do the M7300s support TDMA as well?

Yes 7300 does TDMA. Later versions have a single CAN connector vs 2, called 1-CAN and 2-CAN in literature. Newer versions fixed some kind of noise issue as well. Essentially an XG-75 is just a 7300 with XLP firmware.

Thanks! That’s exactly what I was wanting to know.

True XG75M's have a different processor than the older 7300's. 64 bit vs 32 bit is what I'm told. There is different firmware for 75M's. You will brick the 75 if you load 7300 firmware in it and it requires a trip back to Harris for repair... this is experience talking here..

On that note, can you load the 75 firmware into the 7300 safely? I think the newest I have saved is XLP6A23.

Just not the package that says XG75M_64MB unless it's the newer 1-CAN

Each radio model has a version of the firmware specifically meant for it. The firmware package usually specifies which radio model it's meant for.

For example,with portables,you can't load a P7200 version of XLPR0M03 firmware into a P7300,XG-75P or an XG-100P and vice-versa. They each have their own model specific firmware packages of the XLPR06M03 firmware. The same is true for the mobiles.

Speaking of which,does anyone have a copy of the XLPR06M03 firmware for the P7200? I have one P7200 radio with XLPR06M03 loaded into it and another with XGPR06D13. I have a copy of the XLPR06M03 firmware for the XG-100P,but not the P7200. I would like to update the other P7200 to the XLPR06M03 firmware.

PM me if you happen to have a copy.

Thanks

I stand corrected. At least in the case with XGPR06D13 firmware and the portables, the same firmware is compatible with the P7200, 7300, 5300, 5500, and XG-75.

Thanks for the info on it all! That makes sense with it and each model for the most part. Is the boot app/burn app files usually a part of that firmware package? I've got a couple older XG-75s I'm wanting to bring up to date slowly and their current package is 11/12 and the firmware is calling for 13 or newer?
