Veratron GPS Antenna

Jan 14, 2020

The new veratron GO is a GPS/GLONASS/Galileo constellation receiver and antenna in one compact package. NMEA 2000® certified, it has easy plug-and-play installation that requires minimal setup.

To say veratron GO has a small footprint is an understatement: its radome is a mere 2.4″ W x .75″ H. Yet the device is eminently capable with 72 channel reception and a 10Hz refresh rate. Accurate to 6.6′ with a good sky view, it’s SBAS-WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS/ GAGAN-compatible and has a time-to-first-fix rating of 30 seconds from cold start.
Built for marine use, veratron GO is rated IPX7 for extreme weather conditions. Even the white housing is made of a rugged thermoplastic engineered for continual outdoor exposure.

Veratron GO receives 12V DC power and connects to the NMEA backbone via a standard NMEA 2000 Micro-C M12 5-pin connector and is compatible with veratron OceanLink 52mm bezels. Ideal for commercial and recreational vessels, the recommended US retail price is $149.99 USD.

Launched in 2019, veratron US is the North American office for Veratron AG. It offers analog and digital marine sensors and displays marketed as VDO Marine and veratron.
