Integrated GPS antenna
With its integrated GPS antenna, the RS40 radio system can be used as a stand-alone device to make an emergency call and provide the exact coordinates. No additional external antenna is required. If you require external GPS reception, an SMA plug is available on the back.
Integrated AIS receiver
A dual-channel AIS receiver monitors the position of nearby AIS ships and helps you avoid collisions in crowded ports and waterways. You can retrieve AIS signals either directly on the radio or on a compatible multifunction display.
You can connecting up to two wireless handsets. One wireless handset allows you remote access to the radio system and you can easily take it on board anywhere.
A wireless handset is available separately.
Remote-mountable handheld microphone
A further novelty is the remote mountable hand-held microphone. This hand-held microphone can be mounted on the front or back of the radio at any time. This makes the radio system flexible and suitable for any location.
Track Buddy is a feature that automatically retrieves the location of any other VHF radio. Simply enter a desired MMSI number into your contact list and start tracking! This function allows you to track up to five friends at different intervals.
