Rated 5 out of 5 by GOOD RADIO I'm in The Coast Guard Aux. I have tested radio and find it performed well. Make sure you enter your MMSI number correctly; you only get one chance or you must send it back to the factory to reset.. The polling feature is nice to to pole other boats and get their Lat/Lon. The on-board GPSR is nice. it is basic, but a bonus on a handheld radio. I have used Standard Horizon and Yaesu and have been happy with all. September 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT RADIO I have used this radio, and fine the use, instructions, owners' manual, and features EXCELLENT! I also love the main two features I bought it for - the "one button - emergency distress call, and that it floats. Easy to use and handle - and if a problem arises - it can come with you into the emergency floatation devise or into the water with you. Highly recommended. And yes, you need a certificate to use it in Ontario - get the course. August 4, 2011

Yes. The handheld radio, if relatively light - floats, and is transportable. Also, it has a GPS onboard so you know where you are.
Hopes this helps.
