Re: Standard Horizon Matrix AIS+ GX2150

If you have no intentions to use the RAM mic then also consider the Lowrance Link-8 which is cheaper and networks using NEMA 2000 or NEMA (the SH is NEMA only). It is $40 cheaper than the GX2150 and is also a VHF w/ integrated AIS receiver.

The Simrad RS35 is the more expensive version (about the same price as the GX2150), but has a wireless remote mic option. I just ordered that from Defender during the sale.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
