I'm going to agree here. I got the Yaesu 7800 primarily for the remote mount feature, so all I have is the faceplate mounted to my overhead console (the rest of the unit is behind the seat). But in Moab and coming home along I-70 I wish I had the ability to monitor both the 146.460 and the repeaters. I found myself going back and forth a few times, and finally just settled on the repeaters. It's not a deal breaker by any means, but it seems like it would be worth the extra few $$ to get the 8800.
