Conclusion: I've installed this radio in my boat. I needed good reception in a weak signal area. The radio sounds great in my garage. The water is still too hard to test it in the Michigan UP where I will use it. I did find that a whip antennae works much better than a 4 foot VHF antennae.
Conclusion: Arrived as promised, brand new in sealed carton. Replaced my older Sony radio with tape player. Fit perfect and used same old connections. Sound is great, but found a blown speaker in the two speaker system. Will order some new speakers. Sony I think ? So far so good.
Conclusion: LCD makers obviously haven't leaped that last hurdle -- making a display easily seen in bright daylight. Often we can't even see what we are taking a picture of in brilliant sunshine. We snap away at the ladies on the beach with our fancy smartphones trusting to dumb luck.
