A leader in safety, communication and entertainment products, GME has just launched their locally designed multimedia marine entertainment system: the G.Dek.

The release of the G.Dek means hours on the water listening to the latest playlist on an iPod or iPhone; or, following the cricket on the radio; or, playing videos from a SD card or USB. All of this can happen with wet hands, while on the water in the face of fresh sea spray, even when it rains!

Unique is that this waterproof GME product brings Digital Audio Broadcasting to marine entertainment for the first time!The G.Dek’s DAB+ digital tuner offers a broader range of stations, in crystal-clear, interference-free digital sound. The DAB+ receiver will automatically tune into all receivable broadcasts and display the station by name, song being played and artist. To top it off, the G.Dek presents a powerful 4 x 45W sound output, and a sub-woofer pre-out.

The G.Dek is a remote-wired component system that includes a control head and a multimedia hub, suitable for a range of boats, including everything from small runabouts to large cabin cruisers. Easily flush-mounted onto any flat surface, the G.Dek’s head is completely sealed, waterproof and IPX7 rated – protected from the elements.


For ultimate freedom in larger installations, the option of two control heads, connected to the same hub, allows the user to manage all functions from separate locations. In addition to the iPod/iPhone controller functionality, the G.Dek comes with an attractive infrared remote control.

The multimedia hub, which plays video and audio, is neat and slim line. It houses the amplifier and a range of source inputs, which include a SD card reader, USB port, 3.5mm stereo jack, RCA line input and 30pin iPhone, iTouch or iPod connector.

The nifty unit is compatible with standard file types including MP3, MP4/MOV and AVI. 'Nests' of varying size, which securely cradle the iPod, iPhone or iTouch, are included in the G.Dek system. Promising quality without compromising space, the hub can be tucked away five meters from the control head.

Three new speakers will also be released to coincide with the G.Dek release. Based on the proven performance and reliability of the popular SPK002 series, an attractive new grill design is available in 5' and 6' marine speakers and designated S5 and S6. An up-spec 6' speaker designated S6+ with a larger tweeter, larger voice coil and injection moulded cone and 'Sports' grill is also a welcome addition to the range.

At a RRP of $359 for the DAB+ unit, the G.Dek is extremely competitively priced. For those not requiring a DAB tuner or out of Digital Audio Broadcasting range, the G.Dek without the DAB tuner has a RRP of just $329.00. Defined by ultra-easy installation, GME’s impressive G.Dek is setting a new benchmark for affordable, easy-to-use and feature-rich marine entertainment.

GME – An Australian company taking the search out of Search and Rescue
In 30 years almost 30,000 lives have been saved worldwide because of the global system of distress beacon signalling. Having activated an Australian made GME 406 EPIRB and listened to the throb of an Australian Navy Seahawk as it approached in the darkness towards our stricken boat in huge seas in the 1998 Sydney Hobart race, this writer is very favourably inclined towards GME EPIRBS and these days even more so with GME producing EPIRBS with GPS.
