Icom M506 At-A-Glance
The Icom IC-M506 marine radio is full of features to make communication easier, and your life at sea safer. With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000, the IC-M506 can easily connect to a NMEA 2000 network and interconnect with other equipment. Also the NMEA 0183 input/output can be used for external GPS/NAV interface.
With the optional integrated AIS receiver, the IC-M506 can show AIS vessel traffic information on the display. The AIS target call function allows you to easily set up an individual DSC call. The Plotter, Target list and Danger list can be toggled on the display.
When connected to an external hailer horn, you can talk to people on the deck or shore from the radio’s microphone and can hear people’s reply via the hailer horn. Foghorn and RX speaker functions are also available.
The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last two minutes of the last incoming call. You can also start recording manually.
The optional COMMANDMIC (HM-195) creates a 2nd station allowing use of the IC-M506 from a remote cabin or tower. Most functions including DSC and AIS functions can be controlled from the COMMANDMIC and can be used as an intercom between the IC-M506 and the COMMANDMIC.
The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call.
The IC-M506 is equipped with 132×96 pixels dot-matrix display. Reading GPS, AIS, DSC and radio menus are easier than ever. The bottom line of the display shows the software key functions and the functions can be toggled with the left and right buttons.
