Much more than just a communication device, the GME GX850 Handheld Marine VHF Radio could save your life.
With digital selective calling you can use preformatted text to transmit urgent or important information including your GPS coordinates or the MMSI number of your vessel.
Its man overboard feature lets you send a distress message to all vessels within range at the press of a button. You can also monitor your speed via GPS in either Kms or Knots.
Waterproof to IP67, this high performance radio will float if accidentally dropped overboard and has a large, bright LCD screen that will flash to ensure easy location and retrieval.
It has 5/1W switchable power so you can conserve power when communicating at close range then use the full 5w power for communicating over longer distances.
Dual and Tri Watch enable you to monitor a working or club channel while still being able to receive important broadcasts on channel 16.
