Simrad RS40 Fixed Mount Marine VHF Radio with DSC and AIS Receive - 000-14470-001

Item # 883202



Simrad RS40 replaces the current RS35 mid level VHF and is updated to comply with EN 301 025 (v2.2.1) standards. The new front-mount design allows easy installation and the low-profile design matches the style of Simrad MFDs. The RS40 provides seamless integration with a wider Simrad system through NMEA 2000 and 0183. Additional features include built-in AIS receiver, a large screen with intuitive user interface, and the ability to add wireless handsets with inductive charging (sold separately).


GPS 4-Ways

The integrated GPS receiver provides the RS40 with four ways to ensure you have a GPS fix in the event of an emergency:

  • GPS antenna in face of radio means open-air installations don't need another antenna
  • SMA connector on rear case allows for connection to GPS-500 antenna
  • NMEA 0183 allows you to get GPS from chartplotter
  • NMEA 2000 means you don't need another antenna if you already have one in your network

Built in AIS

  • Dual-channel AIS receiver monitors position of nearby AIS-equipped vessels, helping you avoid collisions in crowded harbors, waterways
  • AIS information can be viewed on RS40s built-in screen, or overlaid on your chart or radar screen through a compatible multifunction display

Wireless Handset

  • Add up to two wireless handsets to take your radio anywhere on board (sold separately)
  • HS40 handset designed as an intuitive portable companion to RS40
  • Each handset duplicates radio display, controls; enables remote access to all key functions
  • Adding multiple stations allows RS40 to double as a handy on-board intercom

Remote Mountable Fist Mic

  • Removable fist mic can be connected to front or rear of radio
  • Optional extension cable allows radio and mic to be mounted separately
  • Offers simple, cost-effective solution for any mounting location with no cable clutter
  • RS40 can be mounted overhead, with no hanging cables, while mic is connected to extension socket on dash

Mount From The Front

  • Easily removable top and bottom bezels reveal mounting holes allowing the same style of mounting from the front that is featured on Simrad MFDs

Track Buddy

  • Track Buddy feature automatically requests position of another VHF radio
  • Simply enter MMSI of the VHF into your contact list, then start tracking
  • Track up to 5 buddies; polls contacts for lat / long position automatically
  • Can be set to 1, 5, 15, 30 or 60 minute intervals
  • Displays position on compatible chart plotter
  • Great for keeping track of vessels that don't have AIS

Navigation Mode

  • Press NAV button to turn it into a navigational instrument displaying speed, course
  • Contains a Man Overboard (MOB) function; simply hold down NAV/MOB button to drop waypoint and RS40 enters MOB mode to direct you back to position of MOB event
  • MOB waypoint also transmitted over NMEA 2000 to rest of your network
