Simrad has just dropped the price of all their NSS touch screen units. In addition to that there are also mail in rebates on them from Simrad in the range of $150-200 depending on the model which are on until April 6th 2014.
If you haven’t had a chance to take a look at these units you owe it to yourself to check them out. Many people don’t know that Navico who owns Lowrance also own Simrad so all the features like Broadband Sounder, StructureScan, SonicHub, etc are available on the Simrad units. The autopilot integration on the Simrad is second to none so for serious trollers these units are the ones to look at. My favorite feature of the NSS units is the roto knob on the keypad which lets you move through the menu and make selections extremely quick if you choose not to use the touch screen.
Radioworld is pleased to announce another great product to our ever expanding product line. We are now a dealer of Fusion Marine Entertainment systems.
If you haven’t seen the Fusion line up of true marine radios you need to check them out at www.fusionelectronics.com. Many of these radios are also NMEA2000 and have the ability to connect with your chartplotter to use it as your control head rather than the radio. Their remote controls can also display data from your NMEA2000 network giving you all the info you need right at hand.
On select models you can even connect to an Ethernet network on your boat with Fusion-Link and have control of your radio on your tablet or smartphone. With multiple docking solutions for your phone or mp3 player you’ll have the best access to your music while on board.
Fusion is on the leading edge of technology in the marine entertainment industry. Come in and check them out today!
The TSM800 is an 8” dedicated touchscreen that comes preloaded with Maretron’s N2KView® vessel monitoring and control software. The N2KView® software allows you to configure as many favorite screens as you want with exactly the information you want to see. The TSM800 provides an extremely simple touch interface for monitoring and controlling critical systems from anywhere on the vessel.
The TSM800 is ruggedized for marine use and includes a solid state disk drive to withstand the pounding associated with waves. Since the TSM800 only dissipates 20 watts, there is no need for internal cooling fans that are noisy and wear out causing electronics to overheat and fail. The TSM800 can be mounted outside given the high bright screen and waterproof front.
As an alternative to controlling the TSM800 through the touch screen, the TSM800 includes two USB ports for connecting keyboards, mouse, or trackballs. The TSM800 also has an Ethernet port for communicating with an NMEA 2000® network through Maretron’s Internet Protocol Gateway (IPG100). Although the TSM800 comes pre-installed with the N2KView® software, a separately purchased license plugged into the IPG100 is required. The Ethernet port is also used for connecting Internet Protocol (IP) cameras for viewing within the N2KView® software.
