    Hi - while reviewing radios have you come across any that have a Bluetooth output so it can be linked with hearing aids? There are many of us older boaters that now have Bluetooth capable hearing aids and so far I have not seen a VHF radio with Bluetooth capabilities.
    Thanks Terry

    Both the Cobra HH500 Floating handheld VHF Radio and the Standard Horizon HX760E handheld VHF radios have Bluetooth wireless capabilities.
