Default TK-2180 & TK-3180 P25 capable?

I thought I was positive that these are analog only models, and the 52xx model portables were the comparable P25 units. Now someone has several 2180 and 3180 models up for sale on that four letter auction site advertised as being P25. Big mistake on their part or was there a digital option on these models at one time?

Analog only.

I could only wish they were P25 capable - that would make my FD's budget for next year a lot lighter! As has been said, analog only.

Yep that's what I've always thought. This poor seller is going to have some disgruntled buyers when all these handhelds sell.

NX-200 and NX-300 is the only Kenwood model that is P25 upgradeable, IIRC. Bad news is upgrade must be done at Kenwood and you loose the 6.25 when the upgrade is performed.

I believe the guy selling may be may be confused. The 2180/3180 series can be digital/upgradeable to digital, but it is IDAS/NXDN only.
