The next model up from the Navman 7100 has number buttons on the microphone does it not?

I have a 7100. Fairly happy with it.....

Yes, it does. The 7200 benefits a larger screen, more functions, and a full numeric keypad on the mic.

Not entirely sure I get on with the location of the push to talk button right on top of the mic though.

Designed for use by either the left or right hand - a good idea IMHO

Yes, put on the top of the mic so it is equally difficult to use either the left or the right hand, IMHO!

not a natrual feeling IMHO.
I remember the old Pye Radio's (non marine) had the PTT on the top.
Always felt very odd to use to me.

Also the old RNLI "Bomb proof" waterproof units had this style mike, but I think it could of been pye based.
