The IC-M510 is a stylish, new advanced VHF/DSC marine radio from Icom that gives smartphone control of your radio 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.

The introduction of the IC-M510 together with the recently launched IC-M94DE marks a new generation of marine radios. It also is an indication that Icom is a leader in marine electronics with its cutting edge technology and stylish ergonomic design.

The IC-M510's all-new sleek design is suitable for either panel or trunnion mounting...the radio has a depth of just 71.2 mm; 2.8 inches making it an easy install for your boat. The stunning colour TFT LCD provides nearly a 180-degree viewing angle. The wide display has high-resolution characters and function icons. The night mode screen ensures good readability in low light conditions.

The IC-M510 has impressive audio 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.

The IC-M510 will be available from Icom Marine Dealers from October with a suggested retail price of £575.00 (inc.VAT).
