Making an Individual Routine Call

NOTE: When initiating a call from the chartplotter, if the radio does not have an MMSI number programmed, the radio will not receive call information.
  1. From a chart or 3D chart view, select Menu button > Layers > Other Vessels > DSC > DSC List.
    TIP: You can quickly access the DSC list from the messages and warnings menu (Messages and Warnings).
  2. Select a vessel or a station to call.
  3. Select Review > Call with Radio.
  4. If necessary, select Channel, and select a new channel.
  5. Select Send.

    The chartplotter sends information about the call to the radio.

  6. On your Garmin® VHF radio, complete the call.
