VHF Reimagined

A revolution in marine technology that will change your VHF experience forever.

An intuitive touchscreen that is engineered for durability to withstand the rigours of the harsh marine environment.

Audio that's as loud as a train but clear as a bell.


An experience so intuitive

DSC - Initiate direct calls (DSC) with other vessels by simply tapping the vessel on your handset. Initiate VHF calls to friends or quickly hail another vessel when every second counts.

One hand operation - Cortex is ergonomically designed for one-handed operation with quick touch control or navigation using the unique click-wheel.

Wet use - Wet hands or wearing gloves? No problem. Cortex is submersible for 30 minutes (IPX7) and its touchscreen works perfectly with gloves or wet hands.


Large 4 inch intuitive touchscreen display


Pinch to zoom - Zoom in to focus on a single vessel or out for a wider view of everything around you.

Gorilla Glass screen - Engineered for harsh marine environments and maximum durability.

Intuitive to use - Touch vessels to see their details, easily make a DSC call or swipe to change VHF channels.

Wide viewing angle and sunlight-viewable - Always viewable, even when wearing polarized glasses.

AIS/VHF Display - AIS Vessel information is continuously displayed (name, bearing, and relative position) even while talking to them on VHF.


The power of VHF and AIS combined

Cortex is the world's first VHF with high speed SOTDMA AIS 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.

Be armed with critical information about vessels, AIS marks (AtoNs) and man overboard devices on your MFD, mobile or Cortex handset.


The smartAIS advantage

smartAIS proactively alerts you of potential collisions, anchor drag and man overboard situations.

smartAIS consumes very low power and continuously alerts even if your power intensive MFD or smartphone is switched off.

Collision Avoidance - Safety underway

Anchor Watch - Safety at anchor

Man Overboard - Safety for your crew


Easy setup, no fee

With built-in sensors, you can see twice daily updates of your boat's location, battery level, true heading, ambient temperature, and barometric pressure.

Connect to your NMEA network and monitor more - wind speed direction and water depth.

As long as your smartphone and boat have cellular access, you can know your boat is safe and secure. No subscription, no hassle.


Real-time monitoring and control

Subscribe to a Cortex Monitor Plan to receive alerts, see real-time information about your boat and remotely control devices like lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration or ice-makers.

Whether you've left your boat, at anchor or at the marina, know exactly where it is and what's happening on board.

Battery Level - An integrated battery sensor. Set alerts for low voltage so you can avoid damage to your batteries caused by prolonged discharge.

Wind Indicator - NMEA 2000 connectivity enables Cortex to keep an eye on wind conditions, so you can be alerted when wind speed or direction changes.

Water Depth -Remotely monitor depth changes and set alarms.

Barometric Pressure - Monitor changing weather conditions with the integrated barometric pressure sensor.

Anchor Watch - Monitor safe anchorage with Anchor Watch, an intelligent system that alerts you if your boat's anchor is dragging.

Position -An integrated GPS enables you to see the position of your boat and set geofence alerts
