IMPORTANT NOTES
DDWhen using a GPS receiver
DDSpurious signals
• GPS signals cannot pass through metal objects. When using the ID-51A or ID-51E inside a vehicle, you may not receive GPS signals. We recommend you use it near a window. Please avoid the areas shown in the following:
1. DO NOT use where it will block the driver’s view.
2. DO NOT use where the air bags could deploy.
3. DO NOT use where it becomes a driving obstacle.
• The Global Positioning System (GPS) is built and operated
by the U.S. Department of Defence. The Department is responsible for accuracy and maintenance of the system. Any
changes by the Department may affect the accuracy and
function of the GPS system.
• When the GPS receiver is activated, please do not cover
the ID-51A or ID-51E with anything that will block the satellite signals.
• The GPS receiver may not work if used in the following locations:
1. Tunnels or high-rise buildings
2. Underground parking lots
3. Under a bridge or viaduct
4. In remote forested areas
5. Under bad weather conditions (rainy or cloudy day)
• The GPS receiver may not work if the transceiver operates
near the 440.205 MHz. This is due to signals made in the
internal circuit and does not indicate a transceiver malfunction.
Depending on the combination of the operating band and
mode, the Dualwatch or Triple-watch operation may generate
certain spurious signals, or noise may be heard. These do not
indicate a transceiver malfunction.
DDAbout charging at power ON
ID-51A/E’s charging circuit charges the supplied battery pack
in approximately 3 hours. But with this rapid circuit, the battery pack cannot be charged at power ON, by default. So, be
sure to turn OFF the power before charging.
When “Charging (Power ON)”* is set to ON in the MENU
screen, the battery pack can be charged even if the power is
ON. (Only when the battery pack is attached, and the optional
CP-12L, CP-19R or OPC-254L external DC power cable is
connected to [DC IN].) But this operation may generate certain spurious signals; the S-meter appears, or noise may be
heard.
*MENU > Function > Charging (Power ON) (Default: OFF)
• Charging time period at power ON may differ, depending on the
operating condition.
• The external DC power supply voltage must be between 10–16 V,
and the current capacity must be more than 2.5 A to charge the
battery pack when operating.
• When you operate the transceiver while charging, and if you cannot
receive signals correctly, set “Charging (Power ON)”* to OFF, and
disconnect the external DC power cable from [DC IN].

CAUTION: MAKE SURE the flexible antenna and
battery pack are securely attached to the transceiver, and
that the antenna and battery pack are dry before attachment.
Exposing the inside of the transceiver to water will result in
serious damage to the transceiver.
After exposure to water, clean the battery contacts thoroughly
with fresh water and dry them completely to remove any water or salt residue.
PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION: DO NOT use harsh solvents such as benzine or alcohol to clean the transceiver, because they can
damage the transceiver’s surfaces.
DO NOT push the PTT unless you actually intend to trans-
mit.
DO NOT
operate the transceiver near unshielded electrical blasting caps or in an explosive atmosphere.
Place the unit in a secure place to avoid inadvertent use by
children.
The BP-273 meets IPX4 requirements for splash resistance.
When it is connected, the transceiver corresponds to IPX4.
Even when the transceiver power is OFF, a slight current still
flows in the circuits. Remove the battery pack or batteries from
the transceiver when not using it for a long time. Otherwise,
the installed battery pack or batteries will become exhausted,
and will need to be recharged or replaced.
DO NOT
use or place the transceiver in direct sunlight
or in areas with temperatures below –20°C (–4˚F) or above
+60°C (+140˚F).
BE CAREFUL! The transceiver will become hot when
operating it continuously for long periods of time.
BE CAREFUL! The transceiver meets IPX7* requirements for waterproof protection. However, once the transceiver has been dropped, waterproof protection cannot be
guaranteed because of possible damage to the transceiver's
case or waterproof seal.
* Only when the BP-271 or BP-272 (option), flexible antenna,
[MIC/SP] cap, [DATA/DC IN] cap and [micro SD] slot cap
are attached.

fully charged, completely discharged, or in an excessive temperature environment (above +50˚C; +122˚F) for an extended
period of time. If the battery must be left unused for a long
time, it must be detached from the radio after discharging.
You may use the battery until the battery indicator shows halfcapacity, then keep it safely in a cool dry place at the following
temperature range:
–20˚C (–4˚F) to +50˚C (+122˚F) (within a month).
–20˚C (–4˚F) to +35˚C (+95˚F) (within three months).
–20˚C (–4˚F) to +20˚C (+68˚F) (within a year).
DDCharging caution
R DANGER! NEVER charge the battery pack in areas with
extremely high temperatures, such as near fires or stoves,
inside a sun-heated vehicle, or in direct sunlight. In such environments, the safety/protection circuit in the battery will activate, causing the battery to stop charging.
R WARNING! DO NOT charge or leave the battery in the
battery charger beyond the specified time for charging. If the
battery is not completely charged by the specified time, stop
charging and remove the battery from the battery charger.
Continuing to charge the battery beyond the specified time limit

R WARNING! NEVER transmit for long periods of time.
During prolonged transmissions at high power or mid power, the transceiver radiates heat to protect itself from overheating. The transceiver’s chassis will become hot and may
cause a burn.
• To prevent the transceiver’s overheating, the default setting of the time-out timer function is set to 5 minutes (p.
27). Be careful when the time-out timer function is turned
OFF or set to a long time period, and you transmit for long
periods.
DO NOT operate the transceiver in a situation that will obstruct heat dissipation, especially if the transceiver uses an
external power supply. Heat dissipation may be affected,
and it may cause a burn, warp the casing or damage the
transceiver.
NOTE: When the transceiver becomes hot, the transceiver’s
heat protection function gradually reduces the output power
to approximately 2.5 watts, then it stops transmission after
that. This is done to protect the transceiver itself until it can
cool down.

■■Reflector operation
DDWhat is the reflector?
DDLinking to a reflector
A reflector is a special server connected to the internet and
running a version of dplus software. If the dplus software is
installed on your access repeater, it provides various functions
including gateway and reflector linking capabilities (It is known
as the D-STAR reflector system). The D-STAR reflector system
enables a number of D-STAR repeaters around the world to
link to a reflector. This means that when you transmit through
a D-STAR repeater linked to a reflector, your voice can be
heard on other repeaters linked to the reflector, and you can
hear other stations that are connected to the reflector.
If your repeater is not currently linked to a reflector, or you
want to change to another reflector, you can do so following
the steps below. Before linking to another reflector, be sure to
unlink the current reflector. (p. 65)

■■About the microSD card
A microSD card of up to 2 GB, or an microSDHC of up to 32
GB, can be used with the ID-51A/E.
Icom has checked the compatibility with the following microSD and microSDHC cards.
(As of August 2014)

• The performance of the cards listed above is not guaranteed.
• Throughout the rest of this document, the microSD card and
an microSDHC card are simply called microSD cards.
• Icom recommends that you format all microSD cards to be
used with the transceiver, even preformatted microSD cards
for PCs or other uses.
NOTE:
• Before using the microSD card, read the instructions of the
microSD card thoroughly.
• If you do any of the following, the microSD card data may
be corrupted or deleted.
- You remove the microSD card from the transceiver while
accessing the microSD card.
- You change the external power supply’s voltage while
accessing the microSD card.
- You start the vehicle engine while accessing the microSD card.
- You drop, impact or vibrate the microSD card.
• Do not touch the contacts of the microSD card.
• The transceiver takes a longer time to recognize a high
capacity microSD card.
• The microSD card will get warm if used continuously for a
long period of time.
• The microSD card has a certain lifetime, so data reading
or writing may not be possible after using it for a long time
period.
• When reading or writing data is impossible, the microSD
card’s lifetime has ended. In this case, purchase a new
one. We recommend you make a backup file of the important data onto your PC.
• Icom will not be responsible for any damage caused by
data corruption of an microSD card.

■■GPS Logger function
The GPS Logger function allows you to store the GPS position data (Latitude, Longitude, Altitude, Positioning state,
Course, Speed and Date) onto a microSD card, as a route.
If you use this function while driving, you can check your driving course on a mapping software. (Default setting is ON.)
NOTE: The GPS logger function requires a microSD card
installation.
• See page 10 for more details.
<About log file>
You can display your route as you move, if you import the log
file into a mapping software.
• You can see your route on the software map. The files may not be
compatible with all mapping software.
• See the PDF type Advanced Instructions for copying the log file to
your PC.
NOTE:
•This function is ON as the default setting, if you install a
microSD card, the transceiver continuously stores the position data from the GPS receiver, even if the transceiver
is rebooted. To cancel this function, turn the function OFF.
While this function is ON, and when the transceiver is
turned OFF, the log file will be closed. Then the transceiver is turned ON and positioning is carried out by the
GPS receiver, a new log file will be created.
•When the microSD card is full, this function will automatically pause.

The display may occasionally display erroneous information.
This may be caused externally by static electricity or by other
factors. If this problem occurs, turn OFF power. After waiting
a few seconds, turn ON power again. If the problem persists,
perform a Partial reset or an All reset.
BE CAREFUL! An All reset clears all programming and
returns all settings to their factory defaults. See the PDF
type Advanced Instructions for more details.
A Partial reset resets operating settings to their default values
(VFO frequency, VFO settings, menu contents) without clearing the items below:
• Memory channel contents • Scan Edge contents
• Call channel contents
• Call sign memories
• Message data
• DTMF memory contents
