go with the 800 from the start,when philly starts flipping over to the P2 you wont miss a beat and you will thank your self for having the foresight...
the 800 also has enormous memory,,you can Literally have UNLIMITED data..(frequencies,,Talkgroups,radio IDs..Not counting if you record audio files)
my biggest gripe,,No rotary volume control...second,,no traditional keypad...but still 8.5 out of 10
happy...and love the way it decodes packets-giving realtime radio ID info for the users coming on and off the system...
just my 2 cents mate..
