allows you to simultaneously receive position reports from up to 5 nearby DSC
equipped vessels. Their positions are automatically fed over SeaTalkng for
display right on your MFD’s chart display. This feature is perfect for keeping
tabs of other boats in your cruising party, monitoring vessels of interest, or
for local fleet management

Loudhailer: Ray260’s built-in loudhailer will make you heard on deck
and across the harbour. The hailer packs a punch with 30-watt output and 2-way
talkback too so you can easily communicate with your on-deck crew in noisy
conditions. The hailer also includes an automatic foghorn with built-in signals
for both power and sailing vessels.
