Icom M605 wins 2018 NMEA Product of Excellence Award

(KIRKLAND, Wash.) — During this year’s National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) and Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services (RTCM) Marine Electronics Conference and Expo, the industry honored several top products and manufacturers with awards in 17 categories. For the fifth consecutive year, Icom took home the Marine VHF Radio Award, specifically making this the M605’s second year in a row to receive this accolade.

Icom’s newest marine VHF transceiver is designed with optimum visibility in mind. The 4.3-inch LCD color display provides a nearly 180-degree viewing angle. The M605 is not just a radio, it is a system, which allows for smooth operation throughout the vessel. Remotely control up to three controllers using all the M605 functions with the HM-195 series COMMANDMIC. The M605 gives boaters flexibility and never have to be tied to one place again while on board.
