INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the GME RM600D.
With its compact size and waterproof design it can easily be
installed into almost any panel mounting location in your fly
bridge or cabin.
The RM600D is totally designed and manufactured at our
factory in Gladesville, Australia. Precision robots and the
very latest manufacturing techniques ensure a consistent
high quality is maintained, resulting in a communications
system of extreme reliability and performance.
ACCESSORIES SUPPLIED
The RM600D is supplied with the following.
•Mounting bracket and Gimball knobs
The RM600D conveniently plugs into the GX600D using an interconnecting cable and no additional interface wiring is required.
The RM600D is supplied with a DC lead for connection
to a 12 Volt power source and 5 metres of terminated
interconnecting cable. Additional terminated cables are
available in 5 and 10 metre lengths.
When connected, the RM600D can duplicate all functions
of the GX600D. In addition it includes an Intercom feature
that allows internal communications between the GX600D
and the RM600D.
The RM600D is supplied with a standard PTT microphone
which is interchangeable with the alphanumeric
microphone supplied with the GX600D: Because of the
additional functions accessible from the alphanumeric
microphone, master control is given to whichever device has the alphanumeric microphone connected: However
the main unit GX600D always has priority. If the GX600D
is switched off the system will not operate and no back
lighting will show on the RM600D LCD display. Before
changing the microphones, both units should be switched off.
Note: Only one alphanumeric microphone should be
connected to any GX600D/RM600D combination.

It is recommended that the microphone be left permanently
connected to the RM600D, but if it must be disconnected,
proceed as follows:
1. Insert a small screw driver between the rubber boot and the lip of the raised area on the front panel.
2. Ease the rubber boot out of the cable entry hole and
slide it along the cable away from the front panel.

AUDIO OUTPUT POWER
It is advisable to spend a little time selecting the best
location for your RM600D. The mounting bracket can be
rotated above, below or behind the radio enabling the radio
to be mounted in a wide range of locations. In addition,
using the optional flush mounting kits (MK600, MK001,
MK002) the RM600D can be mounted directly in a panel or
dashboard. The flush mounting kits allow for installation or
replacement of any existing VHF radio.
3. Identify the plug locking lever, work the screwdriver
blade behind it and move the lever towards the plug body. At the same time gently pull the plug from the socket. (see diagram below).

INSTALLATION
WATER PROOFING CONNECTIONS
INSTALLING THE UNIT
After choosing your location, hold the unit with the
mounting bracket attached into the desired position and
mark the location with a pencil. Remove the mounting
bracket from the radio and drill the mounting holes. Bolt or
screw the bracket in place using hardware suitable for the
mounting surface. The unit is supplied with stainless steel
screws; however, if the mounting surface is unsuitable for
screws you may need to replace these with stainless steel
bolts. Remember the fixings for overhead mounted units
may have to withstand heavy pounding when the vessel is
in rough water or being towed on a trailer.
RM600D
Although the RM600D itself is designed to resist the
ingress of water, the cable connectors are not completely
waterproof. After installation, the speaker and remote
connectors should be wrapped in waterproof tape or similar
to minimise the risk of corrosion or water damage. Do
not use normal electrical tape as this will not provide an
adequate seal against water. The connectors should then
be positioned where they are not directly exposed to the
elements.
