The Uniden Mystic Handheld GPS/Mapping VHF Radio has all the features and capabilities of a high-quality GPS/Mapping device and VHF radio in one, handheld device.
The Uniden Mystic has all the features expected in a quality handheld VHF radio including triple-watch channel scanning, one-touch connection to emergency channels (16 and 9), access to all U.S., international, and Canadian marine channels, and multiple S.A.M.E. (Specific Area Message Encoding) National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather channels.
The Mystic supports DSC (Digital Selective Calling), which allows users to instantly send a distress alert to the Coast Guard, relaying current position, vessel name, and type of emergency. DSC also allows users to receive distress alerts and related DSC information from other boaters, and you can place private ship-to-ship calls to other DSC-enabled radios.
The Mystic's GPS features include 32MB of internal memory for storing street maps from the included CD or optional BlueNav marine maps, storage of up to 500 waypoints with icons, GOTO (straight line) route creation, and a built-in compass. The device also features nine navigation screens, including satellite status, map position, compass, and speedometer, as well as a cursor mode that displays information (such as points of interest and street names) relative to the cursor's position on the map.
In addition to Magellan's MapSend Streets & Destinations USA software, the Mystic includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, a drop-in charging cradle, a data cable for PCs, and DC and AC power adapters.
