Garmin offers multi-band GPS with L1 and L5 frequencies
Garmin has launched the GPS 24xd marine position receiver and antenna with multi-band GPS. This, the company says, offers mariners the most advanced positioning and heading data available.
The GPS 24xd utilises both L1 and L5 frequencies, along with multi-constellation support (GPS, Galileo2, GLONASS, BeiDou2), to provide multi-band GPS capability enabling location accuracy within 1 metre. With built-in magnetic heading sensors, it’s possible to pinpoint heading within 3 degrees, which in turn delivers optimum chart stability, radar overlay and mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA), even at slower speeds.
“We remain ambitious about our mission to provide the most innovative and cutting-edge marine technology on the market today, and we believe that the GPS 24xd is a testament to that commitment,” says Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Using innovative multi-band GPS, we are confident that the new GPS 24xd will provide Garmin customers with the highest level of reliability and precision for their cruising, fishing and sailing adventures.”
The GPS 24xd series is available now with a suggested retail price of £269.99, which includes a pole mount, surface mount and under-deck mount for installation. It’s available for both NMEA 2000® and NMEA 0183-capable Garmin marine chartplotters, including the award-winning GPSMAP series.
