    It's bluetooth enabled. You can hide it, and use either a cell phone/tablet to control it, or the hand held speaker/microphone.

    It also decodes and tracks APRS; it's supposed to also send, but one reviewer says that is broken.

    I'm thinking of it to hide the radio in the jeep. Currently, it's above the mirror, but it moves aound soo much it's kinda scary. With this, I can put it under the seat, and use an Android radio to control it.

    Anyone see anything else like this?

    That's pretty neat. I haven't seen another like it. If the APRS worked well I would be tempted to buy it. I wonder if it has a built in GPS or relies on the phone GPS for the APRS function. I also wonder if pairing it with the APRSdroid app is possible and if it would make the APRS more reliable.

    Decided to get one, so I can remove the radio from above the rear-view mirror (it bounces like a good ..hm never mind, this is a family forum). The new radio will go under the passenger seat.

    They now have a Bluetooth microphone option, got that, so now no need for a cabled microphone.
