Large easy to use LCD
The A25’s large 2.3-inch LCD provides user-friendly, graphic screens. The day mode allows pilots to view the screen in direct sunlight and the night mode makes it easy to read in the dark.
Built-in GPS with Simplified Waypoint NAV
Built-in GPS and Bluetooth® have redefined navigation in the A25NE. Design flight plans with an Android™ or iOS™ device and import them into the A25 with the Bluetooth® feature. While using GPS, the waypoint NAV will guide pilots to their destination. Up to 10 flight plans and 300 waypoints can be stored in the A25. Other navigational features, like VOR indicators, can help keep a pilot’s heading precise and alert them if they divert from course. All these functions and more increase safety up in the air.
VOR Navigation Functions
Class-Leading High Power RF Output
Output power is increased to approximately 6 W typical (PEP) and 1.8 W typical (carrier) compared to the previous IC-A24 (5/1.5 W (PEP/carrier)). This expands the communication coverage and enhances the safety of aircraft operation.
Often used functions are assigned to the 10 keypad and you can directly access a desired function. The enlarged flat sheet keypad offers smooth and swift operation.
Flight Plans with Android /iOS App
Using the RS-AERO1A (Android) or RS-AERO1I (iOS) application, you can make flight plans on an Android/iOS device and import the plan into the IC-A25N via Bluetooth. The following four functions are available:
1. Create a flight plan. You can make flight plans on an Android/iOS device by using preprogrammed waypoints.
2. Set Direct-To NAV. You can select a point on the map and export it to the IC-A25N for Direct-To NAV.
3. Display flight plan information. A flight plan in the IC-A25N can be displayed on an Android / iOS device.
4. Display waypoint information. Preprogrammed waypoints can be exported to an Android /iOS device and plotted on an map application
Near Station Search Function
The near station search function assists you in accessing nearby ground stations. The function searches for nearby stations using the station memories that have GPS position information. To use the near station search function, position data and frequencies of the ground stations must be programmed.
2.3 inch Large High Visibility LCD
The large and high visibility LCD provides user-friendly, graphic screens. The night mode option enables easy viewing in the dark. The operating frequency in large characters can be recognized at a glance.
Intelligent Battery with Detailed Battery Status
The supplied BP-288, 2350 mAh (typical) intelligent battery pack, provides up to 10.5 hours of operating time. You can check the condition of the battery pack in the battery status screen. It is very useful for optimum charging and battery health maintenance.
“Flip-Flop” Channel Recall
The IC-A25N/C stores the last 10 channels used. You can easily recall those channels by using the directional keys or the channel knob on the top panel. This is convenient for switching between several channels, such as NAV and COM channels.
Built-in Bluetooth for Hands-Free Operation
A third-party wireless Bluetooth headset (like a 3MTM Peltor WSTM 5) provides convenient hands-free operation. Also, using the optional VS-3 Bluetooth headset, the side tone function can be used.
