Default Icom 604

I'm having an icom 604 installed this week. Has anyone used this radio yet and what do you think? Pros and cons. I like the fog horn built in that is the reason I choose this radio.

It is a good radio. since you are having it installed, it is a little late to be shopping....

Thank you, I knew it is a very good radio. I have been using Icom forever, and I wouldn't change what has been good for me. I did my research prior to ordering this radio that is why I made this selection. I just wanted to hear from someone who has experience with this particular unit.

I have a 502 and a 602. The 602 is far superior to the 502, it is about twice as loud and the numeric keypad is very handy. If your eyes are like mine, you may want to put a cheat sheet of the "F" codes somewhere handy. They are hard to see when you need them - I don't use the hailer much, except to yell at he occasional idiot, so I don't remember the keycode for it.

I know the 604 is a newer unit, but it's predecessor if very, very, good. Fwiw, the 504 also has a fog horn feature.
