Re: 7000 but never used , getting it going
Does your vehicle have the option to disengage the 'eco stop' to avoid this issue? My Freelander 2 does.

I totally agree with this !
I ran my IC-7000 mobile last summer on a 4400+ mile road trip.
It was installed in a 2019 Toyota Highlander that stops the engine when you are stopped at a light etc. (to save gas) and restarts when you let off the brake.
Without my battery booster the IC-7000 "rebooted" every time. Works just fine with the booster in line.
My booster was less than $30 on eBay.
The IC-7000 and on my old IC-706 are both quite voltage sensitive.
It is a good idea to switch off the booster if not used for a while, but it only draws 25-35 ma and the radio draws 10x that for receive.
That said, a friend rigged up a relay to kick in a booster on Tx and off (after a short delay) on Rx.
