Stay safer on the water with this VHF marine radio featuring a Class B AIS transceiver, and built-in GPS. See and be seen by nearby AIS-equipped vessels thanks to an integrated Class B AIS transceiver, and add up to two optional wireless handsets to stay connected from anywhere on board. Bundled with GPS-500 for enhanced GPS performance.
The integrated Class B AIS transceiver in the RS40-B can receive position data from other vessels like the original RS40, but is the first VHF marine radio capable of sharing its position with nearby AIS-equipped vessels, improving collision avoidance in crowded waterways. Position data of other vessels is clearly viewable on the Simrad RS40-B screen or can be overlaid on top of a chart or radar through a compatible multifunction display over NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000®.
