Furuno's New NavNet Is Compact, Seamless

Wednesday, March 14, 2001
Furuno has developed a networked bridge, compacted into one convenient unit - the NavNet series. The 7-in. color LCD radar/chart plotters include the 1722C, 1732C and 1742, are space saving, yet packed with innovative features.

Designed to suit myriad of vessels, the 1702C series is part of the new NavNet series of Ethernet networked products. NavNet allows flexibility to create various bridge configurations, including single, dual and tri or quad-stations - utilizing an Ethernet hub.

Completely component based, each unit can take on additional features such as a sounder, GPS, DGPS or a remote depth display - via a single cable, which can then be accessed from any NavNet display. Each unit also features standard NMEA0183 ports that can be connected to other NMEA0183 electronics.

Every NavNet Radar display includes an integral, full-featured chart plotter that can be displayed full screen or split screen with the radar for easy navigation.

A GPS receiver antenna developed specifically for the NavNet system is also part of Furuno's new product base. Incorporating a 12-channel GPS receiver that gives an accurate position fix within two minutes of starting up the unit, the compact, waterproof antenna connects directly to a NavNet display with a single cable.
