New horizon vhf bluetooth is it worth it?
Evening all. Am about to update my very old handheld VHF and had decided on either M71 or HX750e (was going for M71 as icom seem to last but HX750e seems much better value and owners seem pleased on here). However the bluetooth version has arrived - HX760E.
So, do I (and no doubt others about to purchase / renew hand helds) splash out double the cost of the non blue tooth version, £120 v £250?
Thought I'd done the too-ing and fro-ing and made a decision then saw the new version. As it will (hopefully) be with me for a few years I'd rather pay more and get it right first time but it's been cleverly pitched to be double the price but still acheivable (just).
Anybody tried it? any recommendations as to where to buy / price? Just a bit of a gimmick or really useful? (would come in handy when up the mast or working the bow in heavy weather when sailing too if the headset stays on that is). All views on it greatly appreciated as I think this thread will apply to quite a few people over the next few weeks.
Great forum by the way.
