New mounting bracket is simple to fit and has been tested by many boatbuilders
With the introduction of our next generation range of fixed mount VHF/DSC we appreciate that many Icom owners will want to upgrade from previous models.
Replacing older models such as the IC-M59, IC-M401 or IC-M411/IC-M421 with the IC-M323/ IC-M423 is relatively straightforward as all the previous models are smaller and you will only need to trim the hole. However if you have a model which is larger or has a different shape such as the IC-M501, IC-M503, DS100 or IC-M505 the gap will be much larger.
To solve this problem Icom UK have sourced a black frost acrylic mounting bracket which when used with the optional MB-132 flush mount kit*, will allow you to cleanly install either the IC-M323 or IC-M423 where a larger icom radio once sat. This new mounting bracket is simple to fit and has been tested by many boatbuilders.
The suggested retail price of this new mounting bracket (MOUNT.003) is £10.00 ex.VAT. The MB-132 flush mount kit is priced £21.00 ex.VAT. Both accessories are available from your local Icom Marine dealer.
*MB-132 is not included. We recommend you use this flush mount kit as part of this installation. The simple MOUNT.002 plastic flush mount kit is not suitable.
