Icom has showcased new additions to its marine product range at the METS Trade show. Debuting at the show has been a new Class B AIS Transponder called the MA-510TR. This new product has some great features including an attractive wide viewing 4.3inch colour screen, readable under direct sunlight. The MA-510TR also has a useful navigation function that guides the operator to specified waypoints.

Icom are also delighted to announce the introduction of new versions of previously best-selling Icom marine fixed VHF radios. The IC-M400BBE (previously the IC-M400BB) and the IC-M423GE (formerly the IC-M423G) are virtually identical to their predecessor except that they now feature an integrated GPS and external GPS antenna to meet the latest ITU-R M493-14 regulations.

Both models were firm favourites with many commercial and leisure marine users. The IC-M423G was popular because of its enhanced audio and dual station capability. The IC-M400BB was popular because it was a convenient black box solution that could be stored out of sight and controlled by a remote Commandmic microphone.

The reintroduction of these models also means the re-introduction of the HM-195CMI Multi-Station Commandmic Interface allowing multi-station control of the IC-M423GE and IC-M400BBE. The new radios also complement Icom's current range of fixed marine VHF range which include the IC-M330GE, IC-M506GE and the IC-M605E.

Icom currently don't have a release date for the MA-510TR but they are hopeful that it will be available for the start of the 2020 season. Both the IC-M423GE and IC-M400BBE will be available in early 2020. To pre-order, contact your local authorised Icom marine dealer. Alternatively, give our sales team a call on 01227 741741 or email
