are u looking for a programming cable or data cable?
The second set of buttons is for the P7100(which is the same radio guts as the P5100) model with the full keypad.. Find a P7100 front cover and re program the radio as a P7100 and viola, you now have a full keypad P7100 instead of the P5100 you started with
