Raymarine unveiled a new gS Series with powerful glass bridge navigation system, edge-to-edge glass construction and slim-line bezels. Available in 9”, 12” or 15.4” screen sizes, each gS Series screen is a fully self-contained multifunction navigation display with a single display touch-screen navigation system. gS Series can be expanded into a multi-station system with remote keyboard control or network together with the full family of a, c and e Series MFDs. gS Series is equipped with a new dual core processor plus a third dedicated graphics processor, delivering fast and responsive performance and gigabit networking. Raymarine’s thermal night vision cameras, IP cameras, ClearPulse CHIRP sonar, 256 color radar, music via FUSIONLink can all be accessed through gS Series. NMEA2000 networking is achieved through Raymarine’s SeaTalkng cabling system and gS Series systems can also be linked directly to Raymarine's latest MFD range.
 
Raymarine’s LightHouse User Interface is combined with Multi-Touch for fluid touch-screen interaction and pinch-to-zoom chart controls to help make operation and navigation simple. The gS Series screens are engineered with LCD technology to eliminate the "blackout effect" caused by polarised sport sunglasses. gS Series can be controlled remotely, options include a keypad to give full control of single or multiple gS Series displays; the keypad can be used in portrait or landscape orientation (two key overlays are supplied) and is fully waterproof to IPX6 and IPX7standards. gS Series also has the flexibility of built-in Wi-Fi; enabling skippers to use RayRemote and/or RayControl apps to control the gS Series directly from smartphone or tablet, pulling up charts, operating radar and sonar, selecting menus, setting waypoints, and controlling settings and systems. Each gS Series display features an HDMI video output for connection to LCD TVs and monitors. The gS Series remote keyboard or Raymarine wireless apps give full control of gS Series from any onboard HDTV, monitor or display.

The gS Series powerful chart engine supports Navionics Platinum Plus charts, offering 3D chart images and aerial photo chart overlays. gS Series displays are supplied with waterproof remote dual microSD memory card readers for Navionics charts, software updates and data backup. The card reader uses a USB connection to the gS Series display and can be surface mounted or hidden away. Cartography can be shared across networked displays from a single card reader.

gS Series systems are available May 2013 through Raymarine’s network of certified gS Series dealers, who can help create and customize a gS Series system that is right for both vessel and owner.
