A210 25 Comm Transceiver (replaced version A210 21). New version is now capable of 25kHz and 8.33kHz channel pitch. The new A210 25 will use the CS A210 version 1.3. Older software will not work for programming the new versions. The software is backwards compatible.
Innovative airband that's easier to install and see in more places!
Large, bright OLED display
A fixed mount VHF airband first! The IC-A210 has an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display. The OLED display emits light by itself and the display offers many advantages in brightness, vividness, high contrast, wide viewing angle and response time compared to a conventional display. In addition, the auto dimmer function adjusts the display for optimum brightness at day or night.
Easy channel selection
It's fast and easy to select any of memory channels in the IC-A210. The "flip-flop" arrow button switches between main and stand-by channels. The dualwatch function allows you to monitor two channels simultaneously. In addtion, the auto stack memory stores the last 10 channels used and allows you to recall those channels easily.
GPS memory function
When connected to an external GPS receiver* equipped with an airport frequency database, the frequency data such as nearby airports can be transferred and made available in the IC-A210.
12V/24V DC power source
The built-in DC-DC converter accepts a 12/24V (11.5–27.5V) DC power source. The IC-A210 is easily installed in most airplanes or vehicles.
The IC-A210 has a built-in voice activated intercom function allowing the pilot to talk with the copilot via the headset. The IC-A210 has adjustable audio level and squelch control functions.
The IC-A210 neatly fits inside the common mounting brackets used on most airplanes including Icom’s IC-A200.

I have owned 2 of these radios and feel they are excellent units for a homebuilt. Enter number 3.
The wiring connector has 30 pins to which the shielded wire is to be soldered. Because of the closeness of the pins to each other, the soldering of the audio/power wires is very difficult. I needed to get another connector and the company tells me that the pins are a separate part number from the plastic blue plug. Even though the picture in the installation guide shows the card edge connector as one part, they are not. The 30 (gold plated) pins are over $2 each and the blue plug is about $12. That connector will run you over $70 if you have a problem.
Is the mounting tray included?

What is the difference between the panel mount model & the mobile model? Is the IC-A210 TSO’d certified?
The A210 panel mount is for aircraft and the mobile mount is for airport land vehicles (cars, trucks etc.). No the Icom A210 is not certified and is not recommended for installation in certified aircraft.
Can this non TSO'd Icom A210 be legally installed in certified aircraft?
As the Icom A210 only comes in a non TSO version it is intended to only be installed in experimental aircraft. You can try a 337 with the FAA but we have not seen any 337 approvals for a certified aircraft with this radio and do not recommend it.
Is there a harness for the Icom A210 in the box?
No, there is only a connector kit for the A210 in the box. If you need a harness you can request a quote with your aircraft info and how long of leads you will need.
Per Icom tech support, Note at installation, that the Intercom Switch needs to be a momentary contact switch, and when pushed disables Mic Jack #2 (and re-enables it when pushed again). It is not properly shown in their installation guide, and no information is given on its function in the radio Ops manual. They say that it should not be omitted at installation. Icom also said, if desired it could keep from having to hear your passenger scream, when you do a snap roll!
Thank you for providing this info from Icom.
Is this radio ADS B capable?
The Icom A210 (11-05618) is a com only and does not support ADS-B.
Does Icom have plans to have a certified version of this unit in 8.33 for the European market in the near future?
Icom has not given any indication that they will develop an 8.33 spacing version of the A210 (11-05618) as of 4/13/15.
