Furuno launches weather receiver

ADVERTISEMENT

Washington-based Furuno has launched the BBWX3 SiriusXM Marine Weather Receiver, which uses SiriusXM’s subscription-based marine weather service to deliver live, up-to-date weather forecast information.

The BBWX3 connects to a yacht’s NavNet 3D, TZtouch or TZtouch2 network to view weather data onscreen, including current weather reports, NOWRad Radar images; high-res sea surface temperatures, marine forecasts; storm tracking; buoy reports; wave height forecasts and more. On NavNet 3D, this information is overlaid directly onto charts; with NavNet TZtouch or TZtouch2, the information is on a dedicated weather display.

The company also released its new F170 instrument and data organizer software. The unit takes information from sensors onboard, processes it and displays it on a 4.1-inch color display.
