Furuno NavNet goes wireless

ADVERTISEMENT

Marine electronics manufacturer Furuno has updated its systems apps and now offers free apps for the NavNet TZtouch system for Android devices.

Furuno developed a NavNet Controller app that provides TZtouch users with a wireless remote control for their TZT9/14/BB systems. Users can use a phone or tablet to control TZtouch options like a remote control.

In addition to the controller app, Furuno’s current NavNet remote and NavNet Viewer apps, previously only available for iOS devices, are available for Android devices. All three are available for free on the Google Play Store.

Furuno also released the 1st Watch wireless radar (DRS4W), the first radar system that is controlled using wireless iOS devices such as the iPad and iPhone. It uses new technologies for compressing digital radar signals, allowing boaters to transport their radar anywhere onboard.

The DRS4W features a 4kW radome antenna with selectable range scales from 1/8nm to 24nm. The device app is downloaded free from the Apple AppStore and up to two devices can be connected at one time.
