MATRIX â€" GX2000
(Available in Black and White)
The GX2000 MATRIX is capable of being connected to an optional AIS receiver or transponder to display AIS target vessels directly on the VHF radios display using the dedicated AIS key. When connected to an AIS device the GX2000 will display AIS target information (MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG) and will allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC, show your vessels position in relation to AIS targets and alert you when an AIS ship may be approaching to close to your location via the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) Alarm. The GX2000 features an 80dB commercial grade receive with Local/Distance attenuator, Class D DSC (dedicated channel 70 receiver continuously watches for DSC calls), powerful 30 Watt PA/Loud Hailer with preprogrammed fog signals. Other great features include; die-cast chassis for durability, user-changeable channel names, optional voice scrambler, ClearVoice noise canceling speaker microphone, 4.5 Watt audio output, NOAA Weather Alert, Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch. The GX2000 is also capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints, which may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display which shows your vessels SOG, COG and the BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint. The GX2000 is capable of being connected to a RAM3 Remote Access Microphone, allowing control of all VHF, DSC and hailer functions remotely as well as add an intercom between the radio and second station microphone. Another unique feature is the ability of the GX2000 to "poll" (request and send) the GPS location of another vessel and show that vessel's position on the radio's alphanumeric display. When connected to a compatible GPS chart plotter, the GX2000 allows the position of the polled vessel to be shown on the chart plotter display. This is a great feature for maintaining contact with fishing or cruising "buddy" boats. The MATRIX is backed by an industry leading 3-year waterproof warranty.

MATRIX AIS â€" GX2100
(Available in Black and White)
The GX2100 MATRIX AIS integrates a dual channel AIS (Automatic Identification System) receiver that displays received AIS target vessels directly on the VHF radio. The GX2100 displays AIS target information (MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG) and will allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC, show your vessels position in relation to AIS targets and alert you when an AIS ship may be approaching to close to your location via the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) Alarm. One antenna input is all that is needed since the GX2100 utilizes the VHF antenna to receive targets from ships with AIS class A or B transponders. The GX2100S features an 80dB commercial grade receive with Local/Distance attenuator, Class D DSC (dedicated channel 70 receiver continuously watches for DSC calls), powerful 30 Watt PA/Loud Hailer with listen back, and preprogrammed fog signs. Other great features include; die-cast chassis for durability, user-changeable channel names, optional voice scrambler, ClearVoice noise canceling speaker microphone, 4.5 Watt audio output, NOAA Weather Alert, Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch. The GX2100 is also capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints, which may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display which shows your vessels SOG, COG and the BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint*. The GX2100 is capable of being connected to a RAM3 Remote Access Microphone, allowing control of all VHF, DSC and hailer functions remotely as well as add an intercom between the radio and second station microphone. Another unique feature is the ability of the GX2100 to "poll" (request and send) the GPS LAT/LON of another vessel and show the vessel's position on the radio's alphanumeric display or send the data to a compatible GPS chart plotter to be viewed directly on the chart. This is a great feature for maintaining contact with fishing or cruising "buddy" boats. The GX2100 also has the capability to send AIS target information to a chart plotter via NMEA. The MATRIX is backed by an industry leading 3-year waterproof warranty.
