The M85 can withstand hazardous and inhospitable environments at sea and on land, as it is built to MIL-STD 810. The IP67 waterproof rating protects the radio, even if dropped in the water. Yacht and commercial customers like the M85 because of the 100 programmable land mobile channels, as well as the easy to use built-in voice scrambler for private communications. The M85 is full of the features you need including an automated emergency alarm.

The M85 user-friendly display includes icons and indicators like transmit power, VOX ON/OFF, battery status, scan, weather channel and more. These icons and indictors improve the user-experience and operation. The M85 also includes a continuous 20-position rotary selector and ON/OFF volume knob, which is tilted for easy access.

For emergency situations the M85 includes the MOB Alarm, Man Down and lone worker functions. If one of these functions is activated, the radio automatically makes an emergency alarm.
