Icom’s M605 fixed mount transceiver is IPX8 rated with a large TFT color LCD, 4.3 inch dot-matrix display designed for optimum readability in any lighting condition.

Add up to additional three talk stations with COMMANDMIC™. NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 for easy and flexible installation.
The M605 gives the user flexibility in setting up the radio system on their boat. Remotely control up to three controllers using all the M605 functions with the HM-195 series COMMANDMIC™ and/or the RC-M600 Command Head. Either option can be used as an intercom between the radio and the unit as well.
Use one of the three combinations when setting up your M605:
- M605 + three COMMANDMICS
- M605 + two COMMANDMICS + one Command Head
- M605 + two Command Heads + one COMMANDMIC
Large color display
Bring on the color. The M605’s large 4.3” color TFT LCD display provides nearly a 180 degree viewing angle. The high resolution characters and function icons along with the directional keypad and soft keys provide an intuitive user interface. The night mode screen provides comfortable operation in the dark. Most used functions are assigned to soft keys (at the bottom of the display) for quick one push function access. The large ten-key pad enables users to smoothly enter channel numbers, MMSI numbers with ID names and much more.
NMEA 2000™ and NMEA 0183 Connectivity
Using NMEA 2000™ connectivity, the radio can exchange GNSS, AIS reports, DSC call information data, radio frequency, and PGN list data on the network. NMEA 0183/-HS GNSS position data can also be converted to NMEA 2000™ data for other equipment.
