    That will be nice once its all set up, but I am not going to get rid of my EPIRB with the built in GPS.

    Sounds good. I will also keep my EPIRB as it has a proven track record.

    That will be nice. I have a DSC equipped radio, and often forget to tell those on board not to try and use it if something goes wrong. It would be easy to assume that it was the way to get help if I went overboard, and I wish it wasn't there when the system is not in place to support it. Hopefully they get it in place sooner, but not likely. Thanks for the info, Tom.

    But it's just a added feature, remember commercial boats are Required to have it now. So with thier GPS they could pin point where you are with the flick of one switch. Easy to hook up and free. What if thats all the time you had was one flick, think it can't happen that way, flick and jump. So too me adding one more shot past VHF/406mhz & luck is worth it.
