      Install manual missing how to hook up ground between radio and GPS. Support service very good.
      If the manual had wire connections labeled as signal, ground, in, out rather than talker A and talker B that would be great information...

          Comments about Icom M424 Dsc Fixed Vhf Radio, Black:

          This VHF marine radio is GREAT. The noise cancellation works extremely well, and makes transmissions and receptions much clearer and easier to understand. The ability to handle DSC calls without being a contortionist puts this radio far above the ICOM M412 I previously had on my boat. I have the radio integrated with my Raymarine E80, and it really gives me peace of mind offshore knowing that I'm one button away from an emergency call to the Coast Guard and/or other vessels in my area.
