Product description

VHF marine radio system with DSC Class D function, integrated AIS receiver and ATIS internal radio. The Dual and Tri-Watch functions provide better monitoring of radio traffic. With the TrackYourBuddy function you can display the position data of up to three friends.
The LINK-8 system receives its position data either via the NMEA2000 or NMEA0183 interface. The device is waterproof in accordance with IPX7 (30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter). All international marine channels can be received and the system allows easy access to all DSC functions.
The menu navigation is clear and user-friendly and the user has quick access to all relevant functions, especially in hazardous situations. The LINK-8 radio is equipped with a particularly large rotary knob for changing channels quickly, menu navigation and operation control functions. The highly sensitive hand-held microphone has six buttons for quick control and is encased in a sturdy, non-slip rubber housing.


For simple, fast and safe installation of a VHF system, we recommend the Glomex Glomeasy FME antenna system. Further information can be found in our Glomex Glomeasy Line category.

Good Morning Matias, No this is not possible. But if you have already installed an GPS Antenna to your plotter, you can spend GPS Data per NMEA0183 maybe from Plotter to VHF or if it works in NMEA2000 Network about an converter

Dem Preis angemessene Leistung des Produktes
Das Product entspricht meinen Erwartungen. Wie immer eine zuverlässige Lieferung in Originalverpackung. Da ich auf meinem Boot mit Lowrance Kartenplotter und W-Lan ausgestattet bin gliedert sich das Funkgerät harmonisch in meine Elektronische Bordausrüstung ein.

sehr gutes Funkgerät zum super Preis
zuerst habe ich die 10er Tastatur auf dem Handmikrofon vermisst.
Ohne die Tasten kommt es aber nicht mehr zu unbeabsichtigten Kanaländerungen durch zufälliges Berühren, also eigentlich besser.
Zusätzlich wurden niederländische Kanäle einprogrammiert. Die sind allerdings nur abrufbar, wenn vorher von Hand das DSC deaktiviert wird. Alle anderen Kanäle sind direkt wählbar, mit DSC und ATIS.

Que du bon !
C'est le prix qui m'a attiré.
Bien que cette VHF soit remplacée cette année par la Link9, j'ai préféré acheté la Link8 à ce bon prix car la Link9 n'apporte pas grand chose de plus.
