Know your surroundings and transmit your position for safety

The Icom MA-500TR is the perfect solution for pleasure & fishing boats. Providing you with real-time vessel traffic information, you will be able to navigate safely. Small in size but a powerhouse in features, the MA 500TR offers simple operation while simultaneously receiving Class A & Class B AIS(Automatic Identification System) information. Storage space of up to 100 waypoints makes it simple to set a waypoint using the “MOB” button to store your favorite locations instantly.


If you’re in need of contacting another vessel quickly, send an individual DSC call with a push of a button which eliminates the need for you to manually enter MMSI #’s. An easy to read full Dot-Matrix Display that looks similar to a radar display allows you to change your course and range zoom levels so you easily see what’s around you. Anytime the MA-500TR receives a safety related message from a Class A transponder, a message icon appears on the display. Up to 20 safety messages can be logged into the log memory. If a vessel comes within CPA and TCPA range, your Icom will show an icon on the screen and sound a beeping sound to make you aware of the situation at hand. Your MA-500TR by Icom will make other vessels aware of you as well. Displayed to other boaters will be your MMSI code, Vessel Name, Ship’s Position, SOG, COG, and more. For the ultimate safety component for your vessel, the Icom MA-500TR is an excellent choice.
