    Combination VHF, GPS, Cell, and More

    Best gadgets I've seen in a long while for PWC - I just tested some handheld VHF radios that double as a GPS receiver, or Bluetooth connection to enable you to take phone calls on the water while your cell is tucked safely away, or strobe light to blink S-O-S in case of emergency. Very useful, very, very cool.

    Well, it seems that none of the available handheld VHF products actually combine all the good features.

    GPS or Bluetooth, not both

    I have the Standard Horizon HX850S, which has integrated GPS and DSC

    I wish it also had bluetooth, so I could use a headset, and be able to link it to my cell phone, for times when I am not using the headset.

    I also wish it had a waterproof 12 volt power connection, not just the desktop charger base it comes with.

    Note: The 'strobe' light is just a flashing LED on the front panel, and not a very bright one at that.
