B&G VHF Radio is the Perfect Addition to Mid-Level Sailboats
B&G recently announced the release of its V60 mid-level VHF radio. Designed as a replacement for the V50, the B&G V60 includes a large, intuitive interface, built-in AIS receiver, a front-mountable mechanical design for easy installation and optional wireless handsets with inductive charging.
With its integrated GPS receiver, the V60 now has four ways to ensure GPS reliability in the event of an emergency. A GPS antenna in the face of the radio is perfect for open-air installations and the SMA connector can be coupled with a GPS-500 antenna. NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 connections allow the user to get GPS data from a chartplotter or from another antenna that’s already in the system.
The B&G V60 also answers the call for increased situational awareness on the water. The built-in dual channel AIS receiver monitors the position of nearby AIS-equipped vessels to assist in collision avoidance in crowded waterways. The information is clearly viewable on the V60’s built-in screen or can be overlaid on top of a chart or radar through a compatible multifunction display. Share location details and keep track of up to five friends using Track Buddy, which requests the location of another VHF radio when the MMSI is entered into the VHF contact list.
