I agree.  Bluetooth earpiece support is pretty 
sweet but a good BT GPS will work from your 
pocket.  You could theoretically drop it in there 
and just use your rig as usual.  I think BT GPS 
would definitely be a welcome addition to the mix.

I saw somewhere (eham or somewhere) that the list 
price is supposed to be like 300-350$.  If that's 
true, I'd be interested certainly.  I've avoided 
buying a D7A(G) because I was worried something else might come along.
