Communicate with Confidence
With up to 25 watts of transmit power at your fingertips, you’ll be able to stay in touch anywhere on the water. So no matter where you are or where you’re heading, you’ll always have a line of communication open to make sure every voyage is a safer voyage.
The Garmin VHF 100 provides full Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) capability via NMEA 0183 interface. Should trouble arise, DSC provides distress calls with the push of a button. And if your boat is already interfaced with a compatible GPS chartplotter, you’ll get mayday signaling and a digital broadcast of your boat’s position. The VHF 100 also features NOAA weather alerts and Position Tracking, which allows a mariner to locate and keep tabs on up to three other boats in the area.
The VHF 100 has a simple user interface that’s easy to read while on the go, so you’ll always have the right information at the right time. In addition to dedicated buttons and knobs for ease of use, the VHF 100 features three soft keys linked to onscreen menus that allow boaters to see and select the information they want. The VHF 100 also offers premium sound quality so every message is loud and clear. And to make sure the data stands out, the information is available on a 3.2" (8.13 cm) display – the largest screen available in its class.
The VHF 100 is built to brave the elements. And to simplify the installation process, it also can be mounted in a variety of configurations. With removable front caps, the VHF 100 can be easily added in cockpit consoles or cabin bulkheads. It’s the only front flush-mounting capable marine radio available on the market today, which makes the VHF 100 as flexible as it is functional. It’s made to last with rugged design that’s also submersible (IPX7 standards), so you’ll get a full-featured marine receiver that’s ready to go in a compact fixed-mount design.
