Color Radio

Icom’s M605 VHF fixed-mount transceiver boasts a color LCD screen with an impressive 180 degree viewing angle, backed up by a row of softkeys that lets you access the most important functions with a single button-push. Radios aren’t just radios anymore—the M605 can be AIS-enabled, displaying targets onscreen along with important information like Closest Point of Approach (CPA) and Time To CPA (TCPA) and allowing the operator to call selected vessels via DSC. A last-voice call recording feature saves the last two minutes of the last incoming call, which is another useful function. There’s full NMEA 2000 functionality and up to three remote mics can be connected.

$749.99. Icom, icomamerica.com
