With an integrated AIS receiver, the IC-M506 can show real-time AIS vessel traffic information on the display. The AIS target call function allows you to easily set up a DSC individual call. The Plotter, Target list and Danger list can be toggled on the display.
With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000, the ICM506 can easily connect to a NMEA 2000 network. The ICM506
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-M506 can convert NMEA
0183 GPS data to NMEA 2000 data for other equipment. Icom IC-M506 VHF w/ AIS Instruction Manual (.pdf) Icom IC-M506 VHF w/ AIS Specifications (.pdf)
