I ve always liked Icoms when it comes to VHFs and just had a new M510 installed on the 110 I run, replacing one of the oudated and clumsy Simrads. I really like it... easy to use, clear menus, tons of functions incl anchor alarm. Very nice clear screen icom has an app (for for droid and iOS) which allows you to use the VHF from your smart phone. At this time the app isn’t available in the US but should be in about a week. I m not a big fan of tech for the sake of being cool but it sounds like something that could be practical so you can stay in touch with a Dockmaster while docking from an aftdeck station for example. only negative so far is that to connect to a hailer you need to install an external icom box. glad I upgraded.
