Hi Group; I am looking to purchase a XTS2500 and have a couple of questions. What is the difference in a 4 v 8 Meg radio? Do they have the older Ram processor or are they just Bravo? Thanks Bill

4M has smaller flash memory, whereas 8M is just that. 8M supports current firmware, where 4M is cut off at R09.xx.xx/DSP R16.xx.xx.

The RAM22 processor has some DSP issues, whereas the BRAVO122 process seems to have a lot less problems. As of R14.xx.xx DSP firmware, the RAM22 processor started acting up with button presses (lagging/beeping). Some members here are quite familiar with RAM22 I'm sure. Motorola refuses to acknowledge the problem.

I don't think its a line in the sand like AN's have ram and BN's have bravo, but I think its fair to say that ALL BN's are probably bravo's and AN's have a chance of being RAM's.
