    Default Re: Combined VHF and AIS

    I'd been interested in the combined GX6500 unit as well..

    Looks like there are some recent comments on the panbo forum..
    standard-horizon-gx6000-vhf-wireless-ram-4w-mics-finally

    The GX6000 instruction manual is on the SH website and only mentions AIS RX..
    www.standardhorizon.com MarineManuals

    I think I might stick with my separate AIS transceiver... (Although it would be interesting to see the circuit board / schematic for the GX6000 and see if the parts are there but just disabled in software )

    There is a nice link in the panbo page showing the GX6500 Firmware update process

    Much as I like the idea of the GX6500, I don't think the pricing is going to make it super-attractive over separate units. The requirement for separate antennas is a pain. I guess it was either an approvals issue or not wanting to add further cost with a splitter circuit.

    True. What's it going to offer, except a small space saving, over a hundred quid's worth of anyone's VHF and a Matsutec HP-33A?
