Icom's IC-M506 has won Best Marine VHF Radio at this year's NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo (2014)

In the category for Best Marine VHF Radio, Icom’s IC-M506 captured the title based on its NMEA 2000 plug-and-play functionality and integrated AIS receiver. The IC-M506 was also recognised for its intuitive user interface (Icom’s common marine interface used in all our latest DSC models) which promotes fast access to radio functions. Features exclusive to the IC-M506 include “Last Call” voice recording/rewind function, enhanced audio, active noise-cancelling and the unit’s large 132×96-pixels dot matrix display plus a host of other high end features.

Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager for Icom UK said, ‘The IC-M506 was designed to ensure that every feature our customers wanted and needed was implemented into one fixed unit. We are extremely pleased that the IC-M506 has been recognised for this and with this prestigious award.’
