Product details

The Link-5 marine VHF system is compact and affordable with an ultra-rugged waterproof (IPX7) chassis. Meeting the latest international compliance standards, the Link-5 delivers ultimate reliability and performance, for unparalleled safety and communication on-the-water, anywhere in the world.

Link-5 offers a best-in-class microphone with six quick keys for simple and reliable helm operation, plus a built-in speaker that delivers clear audio which is easy to hear – even with the ambient noise typically associated with boating. It also features an easy-grip rubber molding cover for secure holding and operation.

Safety is always a concern; Lowrance designed the Link-5 for clear and simple Class D DSC operation. Link-5 features an efficient, extra-large rotary knob interface for easy channel changing, menu navigation and setting controls. Clear display of GPS lat/lon data is presented on a 1 x 1.8 in (2.6 x 4.6 cm) LCD display with adjustable backlighting. Delivered with all USA, Canadian and International marine channels, the system provides easy access to all DSC functions. The Lowrance Link-5 features an extra large Channel 16 key, dedicated volume and squelch knobs, weather keys, selectable Dual and TriWatch modes, local and distant functions, and three user-programmable (“favorites”) channels.

Offering selectable 25/1-watt transmission power and NMEA 0183 compatibility, the Link-5 includes a flush-mount kit, wires for 4-watt external speakers, a PL259 connection for optional 2.4 m and 1 m fiberglass antennas. Stainless-steel and nylon antenna mounts are available from Lowrance as well.
