GME handheld VHF

GME has released two new feature packed handheld VHF marine radios in a versatile
design. With a stylish new white and grey colour scheme, the GX800 and GX850
stand out from the crowd.

With features such as Digital Selective Calling and inbuilt GPS, these new products are much more than just a communication tool, they are an essential safety device for boat owners.

Built to withstand the harsh marine environment, the GX800 and GX850 are waterproof to the IP67 standard. Both models feature a large backlit LCD display, making it easy to read all displayed information, even on a bright sunny day.

Ideal for use at the marina or on board, if either model is accidentally dropped overboard, it will float to the surface with the bright LCD flashing to make location
and retrieval an easy task. 5/1W switchable transmission power enables users to reduce battery consumption by selecting the low power setting when using the radio at close
range, ideal for communications between the mother ship and tender, or at full
5W power for communicating over longer distances.

Both the GX800 and GX850 feature the full range of all International, US and Canadian Marine VHF Channel Sets, and can be utilised worldwide.

The GX800 is available at all Authorised GME Marine Dealers at an RRP of $229, and the GX850 at an RRP of $329.
