The GX2000 MATRIX is a 25W fixed-mount DSC VHF radio with AIS display capabilities. Just add an AIS transponder or GPS and AIS receiver for a versatile, low-power AIS display. With the optional RAM mic you can put VHF and AIS at hand in the cockpit or flybridge as well as in the nav station.
International customers: Accepts MMSI and channel selection settings for all regions.
Add an AIS receiver and simply press the dedicated AIS key to
see AIS targets. Use as a low-power AIS display or integrate with chartplotter. Also includes: waypoint navigation, 30W loud hailer with listen back and RAM3+ second station capable.
|When combined with an AIS receiver or Class B transponder, the MATRIX displays AIS MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG and will allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC. The display shows your vessel's position in relation to AIS targets. The the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) Alarm alerts you when an AIS ship may be approaching too close to your location.|
In addition, the MATRIX can be connected to any GPS chartplotter for full DSC support. (Best used with chartplotters offering more than one NMEA port.)

waypoint when connected to an external GPS.
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. DSC Distress Function
When activated, the DSC DISTRESS function 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 in/output
Easily share position 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 wires. 30W PA and Fog signaling with Listen back
The MATRIX includes a 30W Loud Hailer with Fog signals; Bells and Whistles with listenback. For added benefit, the last selected VHF channel can be heard when in the PA or Fog modes. Optional RAM3+ capable
It is easy to add remote access to the VHF radio (and AIS display and alarms*) to the cockpit of fly bridge. The MATRIX is RAM3+ remote mic capable to control all VHF, DSC and AIS* functions at a second station.
ClearVoice noise reduction technology speaker microphone
The MATRIX AIS features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology eliminating unwanted background noises like engines and wind during transmission. This assures transmissions are crystal clear along with dedicated 16/9 key and channel selection. In addition the microphone includes a speaker for crystal clear reception of transmissions. Commercial grade 80dB receiver
Advanced receiver technology rejects the reception of unwanted signals from pagers and other unwanted VHF frequencies. In addition the MATRIX has an receiver attenuator to further reduce noise in busy harbors and marinas. Big, bold display There is no question about it. With a big, bold display there is no mistaking the information. The contrast and brightness can be adjusted for situations where the radio cannot be mounted directly in front of you. Programmable Channel Names
The MATRIX AIS is supplied from the factory preloaded with description of the use of Marine channels (16-Distress, 22A-USCG, 71-Pleasure...). The channel names may be customized by the user to easily understand the use of each channel.
By connecting a GPS to the MATRIX position, date, and time are also displayed when interfaced with a GPS receiver.
Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch
Scanning is not an issue with the MATRIX. The radio can be setup to scan any number of channels with or without a priority channel or simply can be setup to scan between a priority channel and on other channel (dual watch).
NOAA Weather channels and Weather Alert
10 NOAA and Canadian Weather channels are pre-programmed and easily selectable using the dedicated WX key. In addition, the MATRIX can be set to monitor WX channels and provide an audible alert to inform of pending storm advisoriesWorks great with an AIS transponder
Simply connect the NMEA output wires from an AIS transponder to the GX2000 YELLOW and WHITE wires to have both AIS and GPS sentences sent to the GX2000. It’s built better so backed better
