    Looking at the list of options and price it can not be beat but of course that on paper. Anybody uses it daily?

    it is just 179$ shipped at gigaparts.

    I was looking for discreet radio for My Jeep Wrangler Rubicon because I park downtown everyday so nice head unit would be stolen real quickly. This looks like perfect solution - using cellphone or cheap android tablet as the head unit and take it off once parked.

    APRS functions are very intriguing to me. It appears you can beacon, text, email and receive on it.

    I just learned that it is capable of SSTV(sending pictures from phone using radio) and CW(you can use decoder if you don't know Morse - any other mobile radio is capable of this?

    It also claims to be cross band repeater( I am not sure how it works)?

    Anybody use it daily. How hard it would be for new ham to install it? I saw some comments that it could be possible to connect to Android car stereo unit( but I am not sure). I am ready to buy - talk me out off it.
