Not sure if this radio has been designed for pilots. A nagging reminder "you assume total responsibility and risk..." has to be confirmed at each power on.
The list of odd handlings is long. - Freqs cannot be put in the order you need them, but are listed alphabetically, - no wrap-around in most lists: when you are at the end of a 50+ list you have to step back to go to the first item - navigation is strange: when you GOTO a point, pilots would expect a course, but just get a red blob on a compass rose which is dancing when you're on ground, - GPS reception is slow and easily screened - VOR settings can only be made after VOR reception, - Keys are too small compared to competitors and poorly lighted.
A nice radio to play with at your office desk, but of limited use in your cockpit.
