I have a Yaesu VX-8R which appears to have all the features the OP is looking for. Its a great little radio and I use it for APRS and when out in the boonies I use a Yaesu FT-8900 mobile as a cross band repeater to extend my range. If you don't need a quad band mobile there are probably better mobiles for cross banding say 2m to 440.

In my opinion anything over about 5w in a handheld is a waste of battery power and will severely limit your choices of some excellent radios.
