Have an AIS receiver
or transponder on your vessel? The GX2000 MATRIX is the perfect radio of
choice for you! When the MATRIX is connected to a AIS receiver or
transponder (with VDM AIS sentence output at 38400 baud) the display will
show AIS targets simply by pressing the dedicated AIS key. The MATRIX will
display AIS MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG and will
allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC, show your vessels
position in relation to AIS targets and alert you when an AIS ship may be
approaching to close to your location via the Closest Point of Approach
Navigate to Waypoints
The MATRIX is capable
of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints. These waypoints may be
selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display
that shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the
waypoint when connected to an external GPS.
Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
The MATRIX is Class D
class DSC VHF with a separate Channel 70 receiver, which allows DSC calls
to be received even when listening to traffic on Marine VHF channels.
The DSC DISTRESS function when activated transmits a digital MAYDAY
including vessel identification, Latitude / Longitude and time (with GPS
connected), to facilitate prompt response. Additional calls that can be
made are Individual, All ship - Urgency and Safety, Group, Position report
and position request calls.
DSC Position Polling and NMEA

information with other DSC equipped vessels using the position request and
position reporting functions. With the push of a few buttons you can
request the position of another vessel, or simply send your position
information to the vessel you select.
The GPS Position of a received DSC Distress or Position Request call can
be shown on a compatible GPS Chart plotter simply by connecting 2 NMEA
