Out of the box, it’s ready to go with DSC calling, position polling, waypoint navigation, DSC distress-call navigation and distress position notification. It saves up to 100 waypoints, and its navigation features display speed, course, bearing and distance to the waypoint. $229.99; www.standardhorizon.com
