Lowrance LHR-80 – Handheld VHF/GPS Marine Radio

 

Been playing with the new Lowrance LHR-80 radio for a few weeks now. It’s really a super hand held VHF. I like that I can program my MMSI number in it and track boats on the plotter just like the bigger LVR-880 radio’s I have installed on Salt Patrol. I use one for my sled and I can still track my buddies on the built in plotter. Just like the bigger fixed mount LVR-880 flip open the cover and hit the emergency button and you location is transmitted to all vessels. You can bet this is also my new backup radio for tuna trips too, having a backup VHF/GPS that can sent my position all in one if there is an issue on the water is the way to go!
