Icom have launched the IC-M510BB at the METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show). An all-new top end black box modular transceiver that can be installed out of sight for convenience or where space for electronic equipment is at a premium.

Up to three remote control mics (the HM-195GB Commandmic) can fully operate all the features of the IC-M510BB and can be installed up to 18.3 m or 60 ft. away from the main radio unit itself.

The IC-M510BB is supplied as standard with 1x HM-195GB but by adding others will allow the user to control the 25-Watt fixed radio from various areas on board such as the helm, chart table, cabin or flybridge.

The IC-M510BB adopts many features from our market leading NMEA award winning IC-M510 VHF marine radio, including an AIS receiver which can be displayed on all three Commandmics or outputted to other devices or indeed a PC (EN 300 338-8 compatible).

Also, hailer and horn functions are built in - and of course, integrated GPS.

Icom don't have a final fixed price or a release date for the IC-M510BB, but it is planned that it will be available from around April 2023.
