Feedback on Cobra WXST75 CB?

I've been considering purchasing one of these for a while. I like the idea of everything being on the handset. Just wondering if anyone has any good/bad feedback on it before I go further.

I'm very happy with mine. I only connect mine when I actually go wheeling, so when I drive the Jeep to work top/door-less in the summer, I don't have have to worry about it being stolen. Its ability to be stored easily was my primary driver in my purchase. The speaker in the mic is actually pretty good on the trail while going at a nice slow speed, I've only found it to be inadequate on the freeway if my windows are down, or if I'm top/door-less as the wind overcomes any discernible sound. However this is also true for my stock OEM radio .

Trail or freeway, the Cobra does the job, you are actually limited by your antenna choice.

Actually one downfall I've heard from other users is that the Cobra75 does not have a PA function, to me this is not a factor - as I chose its stealth form over a public address function.
