Is there a way to convert the 2800 to a 2800S? We have a 2800 and after reading the capability of the S model I thought it would be great to be able to have the S abilities but not have to buy a new unit. I hope this is not a dumb question ... I like the thought of being able to plug n a card as opposed to how the current system works for me.

At this time an upgrade from 2800 to 2800S is not available.

Hi Curtis
I know this is an old one and I may have asked a similar question before.
What would it take to give the HUNTRON 2800 scanning capabilities using say an old DSI 700, or ProTrack Scanner?
I suspect your going to reply with a negative answer.


The interface between the 2800 main card and a 2800S scanner card is completely different than what the ProTrack and DSI700 used. From a time, money and effort standpoint, it would be easier to trade-in an old Tracker and get the discount.
Should add that the firmware for the 2800S is different than the 2800 to account for the scanning capabilities.
