Lowrance has announced an all-new line of marine VHF radios, the fixed-mount LVR-880 and LVR-250 and the handheld LHR-20.
The LVR-880 is the first powerful, fixed-mount, DSC-equipped 25/1 watt radio to offer dual VHF and FM radio capabilities. It also integrates NMEA 2000 with DSC-101 for distress and buddy-tracking features when connected to a compatible Lowrance GPS chartplotter.
The “track-your-buddy” feature connects DSC position polling to Lowrance LCX, LMS and GlobalMap units via the NMEA 2000 network for GPS location display of up to three boating friends. The LVR-880 also includes intercom/hailer-horn, an extra-large 64×128 FSTN segmented display with backlighting and a six-key speaker microphone for left-handed or right-handed use.
The LVR-250 DSC25/1 watt, fixed-mount VHF radio with DSC provides high-quality features at a reasonable price. It features DSC-101 connectivity for distress calling, local/distant feature to eliminate unwanted interference and six-key speaker microphone for left-handed or right-handed use.
The hand-held LHR-20 with 5/1 watt transmit power includes advanced Li-Ion battery pack/charger technology for best-in-class battery life and is also built tough to exacting JIS 7 waterproof/submersible standards.
All of Lowrance’s new VHF marine radios come with a full two-year warranty. Recommended retail prices start from $249 (LHR-20) and round out at $499 (LVR-880).
