Many possibilities that are not imposed on the user, but always offer a clear and simple operation. Sometimes it is reassuring to know what you could do!

Integrated AIS Receiver

GPS Receiver Built-in
A built-in GPS receiver with external antenna provides your location, bearing and speed by using information from GPS and GLONASS. The acquired position information can be used for DSC calls.

NMEA 2000™ Connectivity
With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000, the IC-M506GE can easily connect to a NMEA 2000 network. The M506GE can receive and transmit GPS (position, course (COG) and speed (SOG)), AIS report and DSC call information data and transmit radio frequency and PGN list data on the network. Using this function, the IC-M506GE can convert NMEA 0183 GPS data to NMEA 2000 data for other equipment.

AIS information can only be passed to other devices (such as plotters) through the NMEA-2000 ™ connector.

Last Call Voice Recording
The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last two minutes of the last incoming call. You can replay the received call, and not miss any incoming call.

Active Noise Cancelling
Using digital signal processing technology, the built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling provides superb performance. It reduces background noise to up to 90% in the received signal and 30% fixed in the transmitting signal. The function OFF setting is also possible.

Intuitive Menu-Driven User Interface
The intuitive software key functions provide easy and fast operation to control the multiple functions of the IC-M506GE. The bottom line of the dot-matrix display shows the software key functions which can be toggled with the left and right buttons.

25W Two-Way Hailer
When connected to the optional horn speaker, SP-37, you can talk with crews on the deck or shore from the radio’s microphone and can hear any reply via the horn speaker. The RX hailer function allows you to monitor the received audio from the horn speaker. The built-in 25 W amplifier increases your talk power, making it loud and clear.

Built-in Horn (Automatic & Manual)

Four horn patterns are selectable for the automatic horn function when it is connected to the optional SP-37 horn speaker.

ITU Class D DSC (Meets ITU-R M493-14)
The built-in DSC watch function monitors Ch. 70 (DSC channel) activity, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include: distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls. Up to 100 DSC address IDs can be programmed.

Programming with MMSI (and ATIS number)
The programming of the IC-M506GE with the individually assigned MMSI number for the DSC functions can be done by the user once * himself. This is also possible, if necessary, with the ATIS identifier assigned to inland navigation.

*In accordance with applicable regulations, changes may only be made by the manufacturer or authorized dealer.
