Info on the VX-8

The Yaesu VX-8R HT provides a full 5 watts FM on 50/144/430 MHz plus 1.5 watts on 222 MHz. It will also transmit about 1 watt AM on 6 meters. This radio supports APRS 1200/9600 bps data communication (B band only). The VX-8R is submersible and meets IPX57 specifications (3 feet for minimum of 30 minutes). A powerful 7.4 V 1100 mAh Lithium Ion battery is included. This HT is small, intuitive to operate only 2.36 x 3.74 x 0.92 inches (thinner than VX-7R). It supports simultaneous independent 2-signal dual receive function with both V + V or U + U. It has weather band receive with Weather Alert. A barometric sensor is included. You can even operate Amateur radio while receiving FM broadcasts! The receive coverage is wider than VX-7R, with an independent AM/FM broadcast receiver circuit (with stereo output to the earphone jack). The dot matrix LCD display provides memory tag up to a maximum of 16 characters. You even get a high-resolution spectrum analyzer with ±60 channels indication with wave monitoring of received/modulated signal! And DCS and CTCSS encode and decode is standard.

The Yaesu VX-8DR is an APRS® enhanced version of the popular VX-8R. Key additional features of the VX-8DR include: 
   Smart Beaconing™ Function. 
   Station List memories has increased from 40 to 50. 
   The number of APRS® Message Memories has increased from 20 to 30. 
   DIGI-PATH route indication function. 
   Heads up compass display to the GPS screen. 
   The Message received LED flashing rate is selectable. 
   The number of DIGI-PATH route settings has increased from 1 to 7.

I don't think it has the optional GPS Module.
