Mine has been in a truck since 7/01 at about 100K+ per year, so I am
closing in on 3/4 of a million miles with it. Only 2 problems so far.
While still under warranty, after transferring between trucks, it
blew the surface mount fuse. Repaired by Universal Radio, but the
tech said it took him a few tries. After replacing the fuse and
shaking the radio a bit, it blew again. Turned out it was an
untrimmed bit of wire sticking too far below the circuit board and
shorting against the case. More recently have lost the ability to use
the zero key on the mic for use with creating text msgs for APRS.
Other keys ok so far, but sometimes reluctant to work when cold.
Garmin Etrex that I have used the entire time screen is just about
completely blank too.
