SIMRAD’S NEW HANDHELD VHF Simrad has released a new, feature-packed, handheld, class D, DSC marine VHF radio, the Simrad HH36. The new model is loaded with the latest technology, and benefits from integrated GPS, loud and clear audio, and navigational features that leave other handheld VHF radios in the shade. With the largest backlit LCD screen of any GPS equipped VHF handheld radio currently available (25.5 x 40.4mm), the Simrad HH36 provides essential information to boaters at a glance. As well as all the features you would expect from a high quality handheld VHF, such as international channels, dedicated channel 16 button, and Dual Watch, Simrad has added integrated GPS, and two new screen modes: Navigation mode and Plotter mode. Integrated GPS provides boaters with instant and accurate positional data as well as allowing aiding DSC communication for ultimate safety. Navigation mode shows users a whole host of useful navigational tools such as current bearing, distance to waypoint (DTW), speed over ground (SOG) and course over ground (COG). Boaters can even create a GoTo route using their HH36 for on-the-go planning. Plotter mode gives an instant view of nearby waypoints in a diagrammatic form and includes key navigational information such as DTW and COG. The Simrad HH36 takes handheld VHF usability to a whole new level, thanks to easy to use soft keys and a large push-to-talk button, which is ideally suited for use when wearing gloves. There is also a dedicated GoTo button, which has MOB functionality for added peace of mind and safety. Waterproof to JIS-7 standard and lightweight at less than 300g, the Simrad HH36 is ideal for the social boater, as it stores details of up to 20 friends, and allows users to transmit their position at the touch of a button thanks to the ‘Get Buddy’ function. With a battery life of up to 13 hours, boaters can make the most of time away from the helm, safe in the knowledge that the handy battery life indicator and automatic power save mode will ensure they’re ready to go when it matters most. The Simrad HH36 with 1W/5W selective transmit power. RRP is $299.
