Garmin® debuts new VHF 110 and VHF 200 AIS marine radios

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), today
announced the VHF 110 and VHF 210 AIS, two new powerful
VHF radios designed for both OEM and aftermarket applications. Featuring
an updated industrial design and sleek aesthetics, these radios were
built to compliment the latest GPSMAP® chartplotters and multi-function
displays (MFDs), and offer full integration with Garmin systems via NMEA
2000®. The VHF 110 and VHF 210 AIS are being announced in conjunction
with the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Nov. 3-7, and will be
on display at the Garmin booth #323-324.

“Communication and situational awareness are critical on the water,”
said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “These new
VHF radios will give fishermen, sailors and cruisers confidence at their
fingertips in an emergency situation, and with an all-new eye-catching
design, they’ll be an attractive option for any helm.”

The VHF 110 is Garmin’s entry-level radio, offering 25 watts of transmit
power and Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) compatibility via NMEA
2000. In addition to dedicated buttons and knobs for ease of use, the
VHF 110 features three soft keys that allow boaters to intuitively see
and select the information they want, while eliminating the clutter they
don’t. The VHF 110 also features NOAA weather alerts and Position
Tracking, which allows a mariner to locate and keep tabs on up to three

For mariners wanting to take advantage of the Automatic Identification
System (AIS), the VHF 210 AIS incorporates all of the features mentioned
above and adds a built-in AIS receiver for improved situational
awareness and greater confidence on the open waters. With 25 watts of
transmit power, the VHF 200 AIS also comes standard with a 2-way hailer
system that can be connected to a hailer horn or external speaker on the
deck or tower for onboard communication. Like the VHF 110, the VHF 200
AIS provides standard DSC functionality, including distress calling and
direct calling with user programmed Maritime Mobile Service Identity

The VHF 110 and VHF 210 AIS are expected to be available in the first
quarter of 2017 with suggested retail prices of $279.99 and $599.99
respectively. International versions – the VHF 110i and the VHF 210i AIS
– will also be available. For more information, visit
