Fixed VHF/DSC Radio & Low Cost GPS Receiver

I am looking at getting a DSC radio. I have not got a chart plotter as yet but was wanting to have the DSC and GPS facility on the radio. Has any one tried the Evermore 320 or the The Veethree GPS Receiver. Both are available for around 100 notes giving a DSC radio for around 200 quid. The Veethree claims to meet the NMEA 0183 specification

There is someone on ebay offering the following


Any recommendations for the VHF radio or experiences would be appreciated

I also came across this but I guess it won't be in the UK until later in 2012

Standard Horizon GX1700, finally a fixed VHF w GPS built in | The Boating Insider

I have a Standard Horizon handheld DSC with build in GPS and it's excellent, so should imaging their fixed set with GPS will be a winner too.

Alternatively, any Handheld Garmin with a "serial out" (E.G. GPS 12 / 72/76 etc, all Etrex bar the very basic one of yore....) can be configured to push NMEA out the "serial port".

And you can get them on Fleabay for around 40 and can also be used to navigate, unlike the "domes".
