Great Radio without TNC interface
This is a great radio all around with the following Stars:
* Dual band big screen
* Most all controls are touch screen and intuitive
* Built-in GPS
* Bluetooth works nicely with Android Phone or Bose Aviation head set (A20)
* Low Standby current good for mobile operations
- Unlike IC2820 there is no interface for TNC Packet radio!
Had high hopes for the ID-5100 but it will NOT replace my ID-880H in the RICK because in an emergency, I can not interface it with TNC for packet radio. On the other hand, the same bracket that you have for ID-880 will work on the ID-5100.

Nice radio BUT ....
I was excited that the introductory price was $749. I wondered how Icom could do that. Much to my surprise - I found out after opening the box. Icom opted to NOT include ANY mounting brackets (except for the microphone). The body bracket retails for $35 and is currently back-ordered. The two head-unit mounts are around $35 each. So - the actual "sale" price of the id-5100a is $819 after you buy the mounting brackets.

Don't bother calling Icom - I did, and they simply don't care.

I like some of the new features.
-Touch Screen is nice
-on-screen keyboard makes things easy
-Crossband Repeater is easy to access
-The head cable appears to be a standard 6-pin RJ11 cable.

I dislike the following.
-The radio comes without ANY mounting brackets
-$35-$50 for the head mount and $35 for the body mount
-The new microphone (HM-207) is too simple. I miss having all the various controls where the number keys are.
-The screen is too bright at night (unless you use auto-dim off)

You will like this radio
Just got the radio, been playing with it for a day or so. I programed it with RT Systems software. It's easy to set up, the screen is very very large. You can read the numbers from 15 feet away! The touch screen makes it much easier to interface with the radio. I also own the Icom 7100 so had a head start in using it, but think that anyone would find it very intuitive. I've had good audio reports and the audio has adjustments you can make. My one gripe is that Icom does not include the mounts! This is a mobile radio. Come on Icom. At this price one shouldn't have to pay extra for some sheet metal. I do not have a D-star repeater in the area (yet) but we have been using digital simplex. I also own a Icom 2820 so I can operate them side by side. I think this radio will be around for quite a while. Just a lot of features in one package. The SD chip is a one of them. The ability to interface with other devices, folks are going to like So far I'll give it a 5 and feel confident that won't change with time. I'll let others carry on with the techie reviews!
