Fully Featured IDAS™ Digital Handheld with Built-in GPS and Waterproof Protection

IP67 Dust-tight & Waterproof Protection

The IC-F3261D series provides rugged protection against dust and water that is equivalent to IP67. The radio can withstand 1m depth of water for 30 minutes.

Man Down and Lone Worker Functions for Emergency Call

The man down function* automatically sends an emergency signal when the transceiver is left in a horizontal position. The lone worker function also can transmit an emergency signal when the radio is not operated for a preset period. These emergency signals can be sent with GPS position data* to alert your co-workers or dispatcher to any potential trouble.

800mW (typ.) Audio Output Power

The built-in BTL amplifier doubles the audio output power and the large 40mm speaker delivers loud 800mW (typ.) audio to receive all calls under noisy environments.

Built-in GPS Receiver*

Your current position data can be attached to a voice or data (SDM, status or emergency signal) transmission and can be sent to dispatch stations*.

14-pin Accessory Connector

The new 14-pin accessory connector enhances audio output capabilities with the built-in BTL amplifier. The optional HM-184 speaker - microphone provides a 1000mW (typ.) audio output for loud and clear communication.

Large Full Dot-matrix LCD

Using a large full dot-matrix LCD (32 × 18mm), the IC-F3261D series shows two lines of easy to read text messages. The bottom row shows assigned functions to the [P0] to [P3] buttons.

Long Lasting Battery Life
