Will not accept GPS inputs directly; requires Computer interface; YASEU customer service non-existant
The FTA-750L Nav/Com/GPS is NOT USER FRIENDLY, and therefore is NOT recommended for flight - especially NOT as a back-up / emergency unit. THIS UNIT COULD BE CAUSITIVE IN A MISHAP WHERE A BACKUP COM/NAV/GPS IS REQUIRED IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION. The FTA-750L will NOT accept a GPS input (waypoint) directly on the handset; apparently the only way this unit can have a waypoint input is by using the "optional" computer (PC/LAPTOP ONLY) software to load data. This renders it USELESS as a GPS when off-station or airborne, especially if an operator is attempting to input a GPS waypoint in the aircraft, as in a NORDO situation. This unit would require extensive programming prior to each flight to be a suitable back-up. Additionally, YAESU's customer service is virtually non-existent. The California offices' automated phone system does not connect you to a live human, and the voicemail boxes are "full" When I DID connect with a human, I was told they were having "technical issues" with the phones (bad start for a COM-NAV company) - and that the single, sole person who was a Subject Matter Expert on this unit would call me back. I received one voicemail and after that, no follow-up. YAESU apparently does not value customers in general , OR Sporty's customers specifically. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND AVOIDING YAESU products due to this lack of customer service, and STRONGLY RECOMMEND that ANY PILOT AVOID the YAESU FTA-750L, as it will NOT function as a suitable back-up / Emergency unit - in fact it could be causative in a mishap. I STRONGLY suggest that Sporty's investigates to protect it's own reputation for excellent products - YAESU is not helping.

Excellent emergency radio with GPS/VOR/ILS capabilities
My Yaesu FTA-750 is excellent. I got it primarily for emergency use and am thankful I haven’t had to use it in those circumstances.In addition to being an emergency radio, it’s also a solid piece of backup GPS and VOR navigation equipment. It even performs ILS approaches. If it’s possible to lose your entire glass instrument panel and still have your engine(s), you can use the Yaesu FTA-750 to alert ATC and other traffic of your problem(s) and give you the instruments to get you on the ground safely.I won’t fly alone without the Yaesu, my iPhone and iPad all fully charged. The latter two have ForeFlight. Yes, I freely admit all that redundancy sounds over-the-top.The Yaesu FTA 750L is easy to learn to use, and it has more storage for frequencies than I can imagine using.

Good Product
Fairly easy to set up with the included instructions; & I’m not particularly techno-savvy.
Once programmed it’s as easy to use as the time / effort I put into its set up makes it.
I picked it over Sporty’s radio for $$-value & accessories. In other words, for $50 more, the Yaesu radio had additional features & a significant accessory package included where the Sporty radio would’ve required another $100 (above the radio cost) for similar inclusions. Unless I misunderstood the product details.

Solid Unit nice fit
So far so good. I haven’t used it in a plane yet but it appears to be very well made I get clear sound on the WX channel. I like the instruction booklet which I’m finding easy to understand. This unit appears to be user friendly and I think its a good value with all the included accessories. I highly recommend it

Lots of extras and goodies.... unit has a lot to offer and neat functions. A little bit harder to operate, but nothing for a pilot to figure out! The basic functions are available and simple to acquire and use!

Failed After Two Months
Functioned great initially. A little complicated, but lots of features. I liked that it connected to the computer and I could input frequencies. However, after a few months, I could not hear any air traffic. The only thing I could pick up was Norcal Approach. I would be a few hundred yards from the tower at Reed-Hillview and nothing. Near the runway in Watsonville and nothing.

I'd write it off to "pilot error," however, I a few weeks before I was picking up all frequencies. The antenna fell off frequently, so I suspect there was something wrong with the connection.

Returned for credit. I will buy another brand.

What's the usable range for VOR navigation? Is the ILS as accurate as the CDI in the panel? Can I charge this with a USB cable(from an external battery pack)?
Joel S on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Dont know about range. The ILS is as accurate as CDI, if I had total electrical failure, you could use to IFR minimums or lower without a problem. Don't know about USB charging, I use the electrical outlet.
Any recommendations for purchasing a wing antenna to improve reception, decrease interference with the Yaesu FTA 750L? Thanks.
Charles S on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not have an antenna as you are describing.
Is there an ILS display with loc and glide on this radio? If not, I am wondering why there is no product available with both 8.33 transmission and ILS navigation. Notwithstanding bluetooth connection for Bose A20 and GPS as a possible option. This seems to be the best combination of features, yet no product fills that bill to my knowledge.

Urgend question before purchase:
In the meantime is the Yaesu 550 and 750 now fully 8.33khz compliant and will transmit and receive on all frequencies including 8.33khz spaced ones? Thank you! X
A shopper on Jul 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the radio can receive at 8.33kHz and transmit on 8.33kHz.
Looking at the q&a, it says the 550 radio is compatible for 8.33 Khz spacing, and then 2 questions down it says it is not usable in Europe because it doesn’t have 8.33 Khz spacing. So which one is correct ? And what about the 750 ?
