How does a Navman 7200 VHF compare to ICOM and Standard-Horizon?

I prefer ICOM. I do not see any compelling reason to prefer NAVMAN. All VHF Marine Band transceivers sold in the U.S.A. have to meet the F.C.C. specifications for service in that band.

I just bought a Standard/Horizon ps1000. I looked at the two Navman radios and found nothing compelling for me to buy them. Icom, as JimH suggests, is good quality. I have one on my Trojan and its never let me down. But the design of the Standard /Horizon ps1000/2000 lends it self very well to CC style boats.

Like most consumer electronics these days, as VHFs more and more use a fairly standard set of chips and internal electronics, the performance/feature difference between any of them has been getting smaller over time. You need to make your decision more on packaging/ruggedness, waterproofing, product support and other such factors.
