Many to choose from. As far as GPS there are only a few handhelds that have the DSC which is were there is a button on the radio that you press and it sends out an emergency distress call with you GPS location. They tend to be a little larger and cost a little more. I went with a non DSC because of the size of the DSC type radios was just to big.

I bought an Icom M36 Floater for $170. The radio's with DSC tend to be on the larger side as previously mentioned.
