We do not offer a world wide warranty and our warranty is back to base.
Having said that if you called here and were over sea's with a problem we would do all we can to assist.
The other thing to consider is type approval with radio's, not such a worry with GPS.
US radio's are not approved for anything oither than fitting to a US vessel.
They have their own class of DSC for domestic vessels (those not leaving US waters) this is a lower class than class D.
Also channels will be missing.
Dealers here should not add the channels as they could be fined.
Most will tell you to go away as would we.
