Furuno New FM4850 Black Box VHF Packs Essential Tools, Including AIS, GPS & More Into a Compact, Versatile Unit
Furuno turned heads in 2018 with the release of the FM4800, a 5-in-1 unit featuring VHF Radiotelephone, Class D DSC, GPS Receiver, AIS Receiver, and Simplified Loud Hailer with Intercom. Mariners appreciated the unit's rich feature set, rugged durability, and the ease with which it connects to other models within the Furuno family of marine electronics. Now, Furuno has introduced an all-new version of this versatile unit in a space-saving black box configuration. With the FM4850, mariners can take advantage of the same incredible feature set found in the FM4800, only with a much smaller footprint.
The Furuno FM4850 includes the same 'all-in-one' features found in its companion model, but with a twist. The FM4850's black box configuration allows for it to be installed in an out-of-the-way location, so it's not taking up valuable real estate on the helm, while the included handset with LCD Screen and waterproof speaker can be installed in easy-to-access locations. Up to three individual 'stations' can be connected to a single black box installation, each of them with full access to the FM4850's impressive capabilities. This means you can have a Marine VHF Radiotelephone with built-in Class D DSC, GPS Receiver, AIS Receiver, Multi-Station Intercom, and 30W Loud Hailer with Listen Back capability installed at multiple locations onboard, all with one simple installation.
With its built-in GPS receiver, all the FM4850 requires is an external GPS antenna . . .
