New Stuff: Garmin VHF 110 & 210 AIS Radios
November 23, 2016
Garmin’s new VHF 110 and VHF 210 AIS are powerful marine radios featuring an updated industrial design and sleek aesthetics. They also compliment the latest GPSMAP chartplotters and multifunction displays (MFDs), and offer full integration with Garmin systems via NMEA 2000.
The VHF 110 is Garmin’s entry-level radio, offering 25 watts of transmit power and Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) compatibility via NMEA 2000. Easy to operate, the VHF 110 features 3 soft keys that allow boaters to intuitively see and select the information they want, thereby eliminating screen clutter. The VHF 110 also features NOAA weather alerts and Position Tracking, which allows mariners to locate and keep tabs on up to 3 other boats.
For mariners wanting to take advantage of the Automatic Identification System (AIS), the VHF 210 AIS incorporates all of the features mentioned above and adds a built-in AIS receiver for improved situational awareness and greater confidence on the open waters. With 25 watts of transmit power, the VHF 200 AIS also comes standard with a 2-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 110, the VHF 200 AIS provides standard DSC functionality, including distress calling and direct calling with user programmed Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI).
The VHF 110 and VHF 210 AIS are expected to be available in the first quarter of 2017.
- VHF 110: $280
- VHF 210 AIS: $600
