, but also the professionals who use our productsTaking top honors in the Radar category for the thirty-first consecutive year was Furuno with the 1800/1900 NavNet vx2 series of radars. Each radar in this series is a workhorse, offering maximum performance in a compact and user-friendly 10.4-inch color LCD display package. Each Radar in the NavNet vx2 series allows flexibility to create a variety of bridge configurations, including single, dual and even tri or quad-stations, utilizing an Ethernet
Hub. NavNet vx2 is completely component based, so if you need to add a sounder, GPS
/WAAS, weather fax or a remote depth display, each component can be added to the network through a single cable and then accessed from any NavNet display. Each unit also has standard NMEA0183 ports that allow it to be connected to other NMEA0183 electronics
. In addition, the 10.4-inch color NavNet displays have the capability to display external video on screen and to send video out.
