Cortex is a revolution in marine technology that will change the VHF experience with an intuitive touchscreen engineered to withstand the rigours of the harsh marine environment.
The power of VHF and AIS combined
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. See critical information about vessels, AIS Aids to Navigation and man overboard devices on your MFD, mobile or Cortex handset.
Collision Avoidance & One-touch DSC
Cortex continuously calculates collision risk and warns you with voice annunciated alerts. View crossing situations, navigation light sectors and perform trial maneuvers while talking on the VHF radio. Initiate direct calls (DSC) with other vessels by simply tapping the vessel on your handset touchscreen. Push to talk to quickly hail another vessel when every second counts.
Cortex combines built-in sensors, external sensor inputs and NMEA 2000 connectivity with free basic monitoring. Using cloud connectivity, you can view twice-daily updates of power, location, wind, depth, bilge, temperature and more on your smartphone.
The Cortex Monitor Premium subscription unlocks real-time vessel status, instant alerts and device control for boat systems like refrigerators, icemakers, lights or heaters.
Anchor Watch on board and ashore
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, connected speaker and your smartphone. Receive alerts while ashore via the Cortex Monitor App on your smartphone.
