Hand-held NAV/COM

I’m looking to purchase a hand-held NAV/COM Transceiver does anyone have any suggestions or comments regarding the products out there. Thanks


I have an Icom A23. A couple of comments…

You need an external antenna if you are going to use it for other than getting ATIS, CD, etc. The range is not all that good from inside the plane with just the attached whip antenna.

I’m used to the flip-flop feature on the Garmins. The A23 does not have a flip-flop feature which I find annoying. You can set up a list of frequencies to toggle between but its more trouble than it’s worth IMHO. I don’t know if any other HH radios have a frequency flip-flop feature.

Happy Turkeyday,
