GME launches three new products at Sanctuary Cove in 2011


Australian exhibitor GME is launching three new products in the Australian market at Sanctuary Cove in 2011.

Products include the GME G-Series; the G-Com handheld VHF radio and the GD9600 marine stereo system. The G-Series, chartplotter G.Plot, fishfinder G.Fish and combination unit G.Combo all present a high-performance colour display in a popular space-saving design.

GME has opted for a high-resolution 640H x 480W pixel, 5.6inch (142mm) diagonal back-lit TFT LCD display with night mode and 10 adjustable settings on all three models.

The units can either be flushed into a dash or mounted on the simple tilt and swivel bracket, which is supplied along with a sun cover. The G-Series allows the boat owner to get the best performance out of a unit quickly and easily.

A snap-shot function allows display on the screen to be captured and saved to the unit’s 128MB memory and downloaded onto an optional SD card for viewing.

The second new product is the G-Com GX660 hand-held VHF radio with a waterproof rating of IPX7. This floats, has selectable output power of 5/1W, dual-watch, scan and memory all in a robust easy-to-use design.

The radio comes with a 12-volt charger, 1400mAh Li-Ion battery that will operate the unit when fully charged for 12 hours. GME is also releasing the GD9600 marine stereo system. Similar to its predecessor, the GR9200 series, this unit is CD/MP3/AM-FM radio compatible but also has a DVD player.

It has the provision for an additional wired remote (RCU9200) and connection to an iPod via an additional auxiliary lead. The unit comes in two configurations – one that can be bulkhead mounted and the other with a fully-enclosed housing and mounting bracket.
