NMEA 2000™ Connectivity
With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000, the IC-M506GE can easily connect to a NMEA 2000 network. The 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 replay 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
Functions menu: 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.
