    Which would you do?

    Why?

    1) Local seller of the 700. I know him. He takes good care of his stuff.

    2) Like I said in the title, same price.

    3) I don't think I would get into APRS stuff too much, so that alone isn't a great selling pint. But I might get into it if I have it I guess.

    Used TM-V71A come up for sale on here fairly regularly. I bought two, one with the separation kit, for $300 shipped each. Both looked brand spanking new.
    That said, if its a good deal and the thing works well (knobs aren't wobbly/track accurately, buttons don't stick, etc), couldn't hurt to have more features.

    Yeah I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a used one. How do you like yours?
