Reviews

Bought the ICOM A25C for my husband. He is very pleased, and the radio is very clear. Thank you to Spruce aircraft for their helpful advice.

A great radio that is easy to use. I was pleasantly surprised to find the charger is multi-voltage as I will be using the radio in 110V and 240V countries. It was also a surprise to find a separate battery pack for AA batteries included.

Q&A

Q: What is the difference between the Icom A25C and the Icom A25N?

The A25C is comm only, meaning that it is for communication only does not have NAV features. The A25N is a NAV/COM, meaning that it has communication and VOR navigation built in.
