The latest addition to Icom’s line-up of marine products is the AIS RX version of the IC-M510, a VHF/DSC with a large, easy-to-read, full-colour display, which also offers secondary control using Icom’s smartphone app.
The IC-M510 fixed-mount marine transceiver is suitable for both leisure and commercial vessels with its rugged and waterproof build quality. The new model now offers the ability to receive AIS signals (AIS version only) so users can see surrounding vessel traffic in real time and make individual DSC calls to selected targets.
Users can command and control the IC-M510 from a smartphone using the RS-M500 app (iOS and Android) through its built-in WLAN transmitter. With access points, users can extend the range of the IC-M510’s connection throughout the vessel. Up to three smartphones can be programmed into an on-board system.
