Communication and situational awareness are critical on the water. This fixed-mount Garmin VHF 215i AIS radio displays AIS on the chartplotter to enhance communication, situational awareness and collision avoidance between you and other mariners worldwide.
During an emergency situation, the 25-watt transmit power of Garmin VHF 215i AIS gives fishermen, sailors and cruisers confidence at their fingertips.
Easy to install and use, just plug and play to compatible Garmin chartplotters and MFDs via the NMEA 2000® network. Garmin VHF 215i AIS provides standard Class D DSC functionality (distress calling and direct calling with user-programmed MMSI). The marine radio is preprogrammed with international marine channels. It’s also NMEA 0183 compatible and includes a two-way hailer system for onboard communication.
Because your helm is a source of pride, the Garmin VHF 215i AIS marine radio is designed to complement the appearance of Garmin GPSMAP® 7x2/9x2, Garmin GPMAP 10x2/12x2, Garmin GPSMAP 7400/7600 and Garmin GPSMAP 8400/8600 chartplotters and MFDs.
