Marine radio with smartphone control
A new marine radio with smartphone control will help make communications management easier than ever.
Icom UK’s IC-M510 VHF/DSC marine radio offers smartphone control using the RS-M500 app (iOS/Android).
“Up to three smartphones can act as remote controllers via the radio’s WLAN. It is even possible to have an intercom function between your smartphone and the radio itself,” said Icom.
The IC-M510’s sleek design is suitable for either panel or trunnion mounting. The radio has a depth of just 2.8 inches, making installation easy for vessels.
The colour TFT LCD provides nearly a 180-degree viewing angle and the wide display has high-resolution characters and function icons. The night mode screen also ensures good readability in low light conditions.
Impressive audio is built into the IC-M510 and its internal speaker enhances the received audio. The waterproof speaker provides superior sound quality with a wide frequency range for powerful, clear audio.
The introduction of the standalone IC-M510 will be followed later in the year with an optional CT-M500 wireless interface box that provides NMEA 2000 connectivity and Hailer/PA feature. The CT-M500 and the radio can be connected through WLAN.
