Product Questions

Is this radio suitable for UK inshore waters?

Yes, this would be suitable for the UK inland waters. It is also ATIS Capable so would be suitable for European inland waters


Rate the answer?
Does this unit require separate GPS receiver & aerial or does it receive the GPS internally?

The F57 has no internal GPS receiver, so would require a GPS position to be fed from another unit. This can be received through the NMEA 0183 input
