Icom Showcases New M506 VHF Fixed Mount Marine Radio at 2014 Miami International Boat Show
Icom America is exhibiting new product at the 2014 Progressive® Insurance Miami Boat Show. From February 13-17, Icom will showcase a new VHF fixed mount radio and its popular IC-M400BB radio, which debuted at Miami last year. Icom's display is located at Booth #1687 (Electronics room) at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Icom's new M506 Series radio will feature various functions such as integrated Automatic Identification System (AIS), NMEA 2000(tm) connectivity and rear mic capability (depending on version). "All M506 versions feature 'Last Call' recording, which automatically saves the last two minutes of an incoming call. Don't miss a call again!" says David McLain, Icom America Nationals Sales Manager, Marine & Avionics. Additional features include active noise cancelling and an intuitive soft-key interface with large 132x96 pixels dot-matrix display. For more information on the radio, boat show attendees are encouraged to visit Icom's booth #1687.
Icom will also be exhibiting the IC-M400BB, a compact fixed mount radio. The M400BB comprises only an RF black box unit and a COMMANDMICIV(tm) remote control microphone. This streamlined configuration is perfect for owners of small boats and shipbuilders requiring a radio with a small physical footprint and flexible installation. Radio features include built-in Class D DSC, active noise cancelling and an intuitive user interface also found on Icom's newer marine radio models.
The 2014 Miami Boat Show takes place over 5 days at 3 Florida locations: the Miami Beach Convention Center; the New Powerboat and Yacht Show at Sea Isle Marina; and Strictly Sail(r) at Miamarina at Bayside. The annual show hosts more than 2,000 companies and 3,000 boats. On-the-water training seminars and workshops are scheduled as well as live entertainment and celebrity appearances.
