A revolution in marine communication that will change your VHF experience forever. An intuitive touchscreen handset engineered for durability, with powerful clear audio and the benefits of integrated AIS and remote monitoring.

Cortex is the world's first VHF with high speed SOTDMA AIS transponder technology, making your boat visible to others.

A built-in heading sensor tells other vessels your direction, helping them more accurately predict potential collisions.

Be armed with critical information about vessels, AIS marks (AtoNs) and man overboard devices on your MFD, mobile or Cortex handset.

Cortex continuously calculates crossing situations and generates collision alarms for critical action, alerts if your anchor is dragging and activates MOB alarms for immediate retrieval. Instead of ambiguous bells or tones, Cortex sounds the alarm with voiced alerts that escalate until acknowledged.

Cortex combines built in sensors and NMEA2000 connectivity with free basic monitoring. Using cellular connectivity, you can view twice-daily updates of power, location, wind, depth, bilge, temperature and more on their smartphones. The Cortex Monitor Premium subscription unlocks real-time vessel status, instant alerts and device control for boat systems like refrigerators, icemakers, lights or heaters.

By combining your position and heading, Cortex will determine if your anchor drags. If your boat moves outside your anchor swing radius the alarm will sound on Cortex handsets and your smartphone.
