LED Indicator Panel
The M1 indicator panel provides system status via orange, green and red illumination in various stages of solid or flashing.
eg. The GPS icon flashes green momentarily when a fix is acquired and returns to solid green after a few seconds.
The VHF icon indicates VHF, AIS and DSC as these functions are all connected to the same AIS/VHF antenna.
Power ON is indicated with white light.
