Meets SOLAS requirements
The GM800 meets the GMDSS requirements defined by the international organization SOLAS for commercial ships on international voyages.
The GM800 has also been certified with a “wheel mark” (Marine Equipment Directive which is required by the European Union for commercial ships). Meets MED 2014/90/EU
Meets Strict Environmental Requirements
The GM800 have passed rigorous environmental testing and quality assurance processes.
These radios are designed to provide reliable operation and long-lasting durability under harsh maritime environments.
In fact, the controller has IPX7 protection (1 m depth of water for 30 minutes).
Meets ITU-R M.493-13 DSC (ITU Class A DSC)
The dedicated DSC watch-keeping receiver continuously scans the six distress channels in rotation.
A total of 100 MMSI members for DSC calls can stored with a 10-character ID name.
The DSC Multitask function shows up to seven DSC procedures.
The GM800 is also capable of sending a distress relay call.
4.3 inch Wide Viewing Angle Colour Display
The 4.3 inch colour TFT LCD provides almost 180 degree wide viewing angle and displays high resolution characters and function icons.
Even when the radio is installed to the instrument panel, the operator can clearly recognize the display information from various viewing angles.
The night mode display ensures good readability in low light conditions.
Provides Loud, Clear Audio
By adopting a new waterproof paper speaker cone, the speaker provides superior sound quality and a flat frequency response with a wide frequency range.
The GM800 (MF/HF) and GM600 (VHF) have a unified design and offer consistent operation.
A combination of the directional keypad and soft keys provides simple operation. Most used functions are assigned to soft keys (at the bottom of the display) for quick one push function access.
The large ten-key pad enables you to smoothly enter channel numbers, MMSI numbers with ID names and so on.
