Another with similar set-up. I have a GE Phoenix and TAPR Pic-E well
hidden. The GPS is a Garmin 45xl, which is available while driving.
Next update is Nuvi 350 (already have). Hoping to get the cable for
Christmas. However, the radio will remain out-of-reach while driving.
Not all (some 30%?) have APRS display mobiles at their fingertips.
By the way, trying not to be a luddite, I had a chance to test / use a
VX8R handheld for about 2 months. Wow. Great to have all that info in
such a small package. It would make a terrible thing to use mobile,
though. It also lacks diagnostics - can't see the path of incoming
pakets, is one failing.
