Product details

A real all-rounder! SIMRAD 's RS40 VHF radio has an integrated GPS antenna, a built-in AIS receiver and boasts versatile connectivity. A large display with an intuitive user interface ensures clear and simple operation. The display has been visually adapted to the design of SIMRAD multifunctional displays.

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.

Wireless handset
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.

Ótimo Radio aber schwer mit dem Netzwerk zu verbinden
Works great, standalone (stand alone) but it is difficult for me to connect it to Raymarines chartplotter Axion via NMEA 2000 Seatalk, when connected half of the connected devices no longer work and the GPS failure alarm sounds continuously, so far I have no solution to this problem found. I have already carried out the latest Axion software update without any noticeable results and am currently working as a second radio without connection to the NMEA 2000Seatalk network. It is installed in an azimuth boat on the south coast of Brazil
