Hi all, Just browsing the web and found a new addition to DMR handheld. I have looked for reviews but alas could only find some French reviews on YouTube. I was just wandering if anybody has any views on this radio and whether it was worth dipping my feet into DMR with one. I am also interested in the GPS side ... read
