Vesper Marine Cortex V1 Marine VHF with AIS

The World's Most Advanced Marine VHF… with touchscreen wireless handset!

The world’s most advanced Marine VHF with AIS, the Vesper Marine Cortex V1 25W VHF, features an intuitive color touchscreen remote handset engineered for durability in the harsh marine environment. Standard supplied with one power supply wired remote Cortex H1 Wifi handset, totally up to 5 handsets can be connected via the built-in Cortex Wifi network including Cortex H1P Wifi wireless handsets. Furthermore by using your onboard Wifi Boat Network, if available, and by downloading the Cortex On-Board App, connect up to 5 additional Cortex H1P handsets and/or Smartphones and/or Tablets to your Cortex V1. Save installation space at your boats console. With Cortex you are no longer bound to operate your VHF from one location!

VHF Re-imagined!

Cortex is a revolution in marine technology that will change your VHF experience forever. Enjoy the freedom to move around with your Cortex H1P wireless portable handset to connect to your Cortex V1 25W VHF system from anywhere on your boat. The H1P gives you audio that's as loud as a train at 85dB but clear as a bell. Its IPx7 waterproof and allows for single-handed operation engineered to work even with wet hands or gloves using its 4-inch color sunlight readable Gorilla glass touchscreen, with zoom functionality and its unique clickwheel. It can be viewed even with polarized sunglasses!

The power of VHF and AIS combined

Cortex is the world’s first VHF with high speed SOTDMA AIS Class-B 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 (AtoN) and man overboard devices (MOB) on your MFD, mobile or Cortex handset. Vesper Marine smartAIS proactively alerts you of potential collisions, anchor drag and man overboard situations increasing your safety. Using the latest SOTDMA AIS technology with 5W power output, your boat is visible over a longer distance. With faster and more frequent transmissions of your position to other vessels, you'll be safer, especially at speeds over 14 knots.

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 One-touch direct DSC calls (VHF DSC Class-D) with other vessels by simply tapping the vessel on your handset touchscreen. Push to talk to quickly hail another vessel when every second counts. A built-in heading sensor tells other vessels your direction, helping them more accurately predict potential collisions. The integrated built-in GPS receiver displays your position at all times.

Monitor Onboard Sensors

Cortex combines built-in sensors, external sensor inputs and NMEA 2000 connectivity with free basic monitoring via onboard Wifi. Using cloud connectivity, you can view twice-daily updates of power, location, wind, depth, bilge, temperature and more on your smartphone* (*subject to local availability) Use WIFI to monitor internal and external instrument sensors via your H1P Handset or Smartphone.

A Unique, Space-saving Marine VHF/DSC/AIS; Cortex, nothing else is like it!

Do away with the clutter on your boat's dashboard. Mount the Cortex M1 Hub inside your console and only mount the H1 Remote VHF Handset instead. Marvel at the easy-to-use, high resolution, ergonomically designed Graphical-User-Interface. The future of Marine VHF is here!
