I use these out on wildland, especially for controlled burns they are the communications for my squads. Can monitor weather forecast on site, makes measurements such as acreage while mapping perimeters, and when squad calls/responds their location appears on your screen (unit can also 'poll' location of other units on regular routine basis to keep their locations updated)
