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.
