IC-M506GE is a marine VHF transceiver, from ICOM, with built-in AIS receiver and GPS receiver, as well as NMEA 2000 connectivity.

VHF/DSC marine transceiver with NMEA 2000 connectivity and AIS receiver.
The IC-M506GE is packed full of features including integrated AIS receiver and GPS receiver built-in, NMEA2000 connectivity, ‘Last Call’ voice recording function, ‘Active Noise Cancelling’ technology plus Icom’s new intuitive menu-driven user interface and large dot matrix display making it really easy to use.

Integrated AIS Receiver
With an integrated AIS receiver, the IC-M506GE can show real-time AIS vessel traffic information on the display. The AIS target call function allows you to easily set up a DSC individual call. The Plotter, Target list and Danger list can be toggled on the display.

NMEA Connectivity
With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000, the IC-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.

Last Call Voice Recording
The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last two minutes of the last incoming call. You can re¬play 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 an external hailer horn, you can talk to people on the deck or shore from the radio’s microphone and can hear people’s reply via the hailer speaker. The RX hailer function allows you to monitor the received audio from the hailer horn. 25W amplifier increases your talk power making your communication loud and clear.

Built-in Horn (Automatic & Manual)
Foghorn feature is built-in via the external Hailer horn. Four horn patterns are selectable for the automatic horn function.

ITU Class D DSC (Meets ITU-R M493-13)
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.

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.

IPX8 Advanced Waterproof
The IC-M506GE and supplied HM-205B/RB microphone can withstand 1m (3.2ft) depth of water for 60 minutes.
