NavNet TZtouch Software Updates Adds New Features

Last year, Furuno introduced the first multi touch navigation MFD to the market place with NavNet TZtouch. Built on the latest dual-core processor, Furuno’s intention was to periodically refresh TZtouch with new software features, further enhancing the product. The first software update brought us unprecedented FLIR camera integration and sophisticated fuel management tools. Now Furuno has released version 3.01 software for NavNet TZtouch, delivering several new capabilities through tight integration with several peripheral products.

TruEcho CHIRP Network Fish Finder
One of the most anticipated additions to NavNet TZtouch has been Furuno’s TruEcho CHIRP DFF1-UHD Fish Finder. Version 3.01 adds TruEcho CHIRP functionality to the TZT9, TZT14 and TZTBB. With TruEcho CHIRP, you gain exceptional broadband resolution, along with Bottom Discrimination and Accu-Fish.

Fusion Audio Control
With this software release, TZtouch transforms into a hybrid MFD Media Player. When a Fusion MS700 series audio system is networked to any NavNet TZtouch system, you will gain control of the stereo directly from your TZtouch screen. Now you can control MS700 features like audio sources, volume, zone control, menu and more with a simple tap of the finger on your TZtouch display.

NavPilot 700 Autopilot Control
Your TZT9, TZT14 or TZTBB can become a remote control for your NavPilot 700 or 711 Autopilot system. With a simple selection from the RotoKey menu, a NavPilot control window is activated and will appear on your TZtouch display. Now you can adjust your course, select Auto or Nav modes, even indicate the turn mode you have set.

Version 3.01 of TZTouch software also allows for tight integration with several other Furuno products, such as their large FAR2xx7 Radar Series and the FCV1150 Fish Finder. Both can be connected to the network via Ethernet, allowing them to be selected as a Radar and Fish Finder source for TZtouch. If you need a remote or second station on your vessel already equipped with these units, this is an excellent option.

NavNet TZtouch is already compatible with both NTSC and IP cameras, giving you the choice of which type of camera you would like to use. However, with this software upgrade, Furuno has given you more flexibility. Previously, only MPEG-4 IP cameras could be used, but now you can also have a camera with the popular H.264 format. This gives you a greater selection of AXIS IP cameras from which to choose.

In addition to the enhancements, there are also several subtle changes that were made to the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the overall visual impression.
