CS500/CS500XD Series: Variations in Wideband and Auto Answer Switches on Base

This article illustrates some differences between the wideband/narrowband and auto answer on/off switches on the CS500 series bases. Below are some images that show these differences. The wideband/narrowband switch is located on the left and auto-answer on/off is on the right.  Additionally, version 2 (the newer version) of the CS500 has a recessed wideband/narrowband toggle that requires using a paperclip to move positions.   

NOTE: The distinction between the two CS500 units is purely cosmetic; there is no difference in functionality.
