Visit Icom at Stand H021

Icom will be displaying its latest range of marine communication
products at the Southampton Boat Show 2012. The UK’s leading outdoor
boat show runs from the 14th until 23rd September 2012 and attracts
hundreds of boats, exhibitors and visitors. Icom UK is on stand H021,
situated just outside the southern entrance to Ocean Hall.

On show will be Icom’s new range of marine VHF radios including the IC-M91D, Icom’s first GPS Marine VHF/DSC Handheld
and IC-M423 Compact Fixed Mount VHF/DSC.
Both models share a new common user interface and noise cancelling
technology that are unequalled in VHF models today. Also being
showcased for the first time is Icom’s new Marine Commander Navigation System.

New to the Southampton Boat Show will be Icom’s line of intuitive
menu-driven radios with advanced features such as active noise
cancelling, Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and global positioning
system (GPS). Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK, said, ‘We are
confident that our end users will appreciate the easy to use interface
in the IC-M423, that is the only fixed model on the market to meet the
new ETSI standards.’

Icom’s latest marine line integrates an intuitive “soft-key” interface
permitting faster access to radio functions. Other practical features
include enhanced audio quality and GPS functionality. Safety elements
are built-in, such as DSC which allows users to send an emergency
message at the touch of a button. Icom’s newest marine radios receive an
IPX7 Submersible rating allowing water immersion for 30 minutes at a
depth of 1 metre.

Also on show will be the Icom Marine Commander Navigation System. The
system integrates AIS data from a compatible transponder or receiver,
radar information and displays data from a sounder/fish finder. In
addition, it also has the capacity to receive DSC callls, display
mapping/cartography, display real-time fuel consumption, engine speed,
depth and temperature, and has provisions for four on-board cameras to
be connected (via RCA connectors). Up to two 12.1 inch TFT displays can
be connected to the Marine Commander’s main processor.

You can buy Icom products from the many Icom dealers at the show who
will be fully stocked with our range of marine radio products and
