Garmin acquires FusionElectronics

ADVERTISEMENT

Garmin has completed the acquisition of Fusion Electronics Limited and its subsidiaries. Based in Auckland, New Zealand, the used company will be known as Garmin New Zealand Limited and will operate as “Fusion Entertainment.”


The Fusion product line of marine audio products and accessories will remain available including the 700 Series which allows boaters to connect their audio through marine multifunction displays (MFDs), and select multi-zone audio configuration specific to their vessels.


In other news Garmin updated software for the GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm series and Garmin Helm for Android devices and more.


“By offering this free software update for our newest line of chartplotters, we’re putting even more capabilities and potential at the boater’s fingertips,” said David Dunn, senior manager of marine sales. “Bringing DownVü and SideVü to our Glass Helm series, new internal sonar-sharing options for the inland fisherman and improved gauges and features for the sailor, everyone will benefit from the latest advances that we have to offer.”


This update provides the GPSMAP 8000 Glass Helm Series the ability to utilize the Garmin GCV 10 sonar black box and allow multiple boxes to exist on the same system.


Garmin Helm, the mobile app that allows boaters to view and control their multi-function chartplotters from their mobile device, is now available for Android devices. Other feature enhancements include Meteor 300 support for the GPSMAP 800xs and 1000xs series chartplotters, improved sailing gauges that provide a wind gauge, heading gauge and user specified data bars for the echoMAP series and GPSMAP series and improved sonar source selection and custom sonar overlays.


The software update is available now for free from the Garmin website. To download, visit http://bit.ly/1hA989L.
