New VHF marine radios from Garmin
Two new VHF radios designed to complement Garmin marine systems.
Electronics manufacturer Garmin has launched a new range of VHF radios designed to complement its latest GPSMAP chartplotters and multi-function displays (MFDs). The new VHF 110i and VHF 210i AIS models are suitable for both OEM and after-market applications.
The VHF 110i is Garmin’s entry-level radio, offering 25W of transmit power and Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) compatibility via NMEA 2000. In addition to dedicated buttons and knobs for ease of use, the VHF 110i features three soft keys that allow boaters to intuitively see and select the information they want, while eliminating the clutter they don’t. The VHF 110i also features Position Tracking which allows boaters to locate and keep tabs on up to three boats that also use a Garmin system.
The VHF 210i AIS model incorporates the same features as the VHF 110i as well as a built-in Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver for improved situational awareness. With 25W of transmit power, the VHF 210i AIS also comes standard with a two-way hailer system that can be connected to a hailer horn or external speaker on the deck or tower for onboard communication. Like the VHF 110i, the VHF 210i AIS provides standard DSC functionality, including distress calling and direct calling with user-programmed Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI).
The easy-to-install, fixed-mount VHF marine radios are available now. RRP from $429.
