The VHF 200 is the Ideal VHF for single or multi-station applications!
The Garmin VHF 200 will enhance the safety and convenience to any commercial or recreational boater with its rugged, submersible (IPX7 Standards) design, and with your choice of 1 watt or 25 watts of transmit power you will feel safe and at ease being able to keep in touch anywhere on the water.
The Garmin VHF 200 has full Class D Digital Selective Calling (DSC) capabilities when interfaced with NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 which will allow you to send an emergency distress message at the push of a button. To make operation easier, Garmin used a large 3.2” display with adjustable backlight and rotary knobs for volume, squelch and channel selection. The VHF200 also includes an ergonomic fist mic with built-in speaker and is compatible with the optional Garmin GHS10 wired mic. The GHS 10 gives the user complete control of the VHF 200 from a remote location and can be used as an intercom. A few other features that make this radio easy to use are a dedicated button for channels 16/9, NOAA weather alert and auto power on feature which automatically turns on the radio with the boats start-up. Garmin even added a local receiver mode to improve receiver performance in busy port environments and for larger fishing and commercial vessels Garmin added a 20w hailer. The Garmin 200 VHF is one piece of electronics no boat owner can afford to be without.
