What we think

Jason from Service Team: “This is looking to be a great unit from Icom.  The styling is clean, minimal and sleek with the Smart Phone integration proving to be a good draw for customers.  All the standard Icom options are also there.  If you want AIS RX then the correct model must be ordered (two model available). The only grey area I see is the WLAN aspect, this is down to the users own equipment, we would recommend getting some specialist advice and help when setting your WLAN”
