Float 'N Flash
Icom pioneered the floating VHF marine radio and set the trend with the M24 adding the Float N Flash flashing light feature. The M25 floats when dropped in water, even with the optional, HM213, microphone attached. The flashing light feature activates when the radio hits the water, even if the power is off. Not only does the LCD and key backlight on the front panel flash, but also a red LED light blinks through the rear panel showing the place of the radio to easily retrieve.
The M25 uses a standard USB connector (Micro-B type). Cigarette lighter cables or mobile batteries for charging Smartphone’s or other devices can be used with the M25*.
*The IC-M25 accepts 5V/1A (Max.) input. Use of third-party products is not guaranteed.
The M25 provides a powerful 550mW (12 Ohm load) audio output and received voice can be heard loud and clear. The volume loud and mute functions offer quick adjustment of the volume level by holding the VOL/SQL button and pushing the ▲ or ▼ button.
