New multifunction displays
Presented at the Miami Boat Show in February 2016, the new VesselView502 and VesselView702 multifunction displays are available this summer in France. They allow Mercury Vesselview's proprietary interface to be used to its full potential.
The 502 and 702 models are respectively 5 and 7 inches, in 16x9 HD format. They have a touch screen and can display data for up to 4 motors. They can be interfaced with sonar and sonar. They also include a Micro SD card reader and chartplotter, as well as an internal GPS. In addition, Wi-fi and Bluetooth connections and GoFree compatibility enable regular and easy software updates.
The VesselView702 has a keypad and rotary switch for easy operation.
The displays are NMEA 2000 and AIS compatible.
