Furuno Brings Total Tztouch Control to Android Devices

Navnet TZtouch

In a world where frequent system updates for your phone, tablet and computer are the norm, it is great to see that the marine electronics field is keeping pace. When Furuno introduced the NavNet TZtouch system, they explained how they were using the very latest processors, which would allow the system to stay current for several years. Through software updates and new features, Furuno has done an excellent job keeping the system fresh. Now, they are taking it one step further by introducing more FREE Apps that connect TZtouch with Android devices!

Furuno has developed a new NavNet Controller app that provides TZtouch users with a wireless remote control for their TZT9/14/BB systems, simply by utilizing an Android phone or tablet. Just like you control your TV and DVD player from the comfort of your couch, you can now sit back in your captain’s chair and control everything TZtouch has to offer, right from your Android device. The NavNet Controller app provides on-screen cursor control, chart panning and a very convenient chart zoom feature. The clean and simple ergonomic design of this app allows you to easily control your TZtouch system without even looking down at the Android device.

In addition to the Controller app, Furuno’s current NavNet Remote and NavNet Viewer apps, (previously only available for iOS devices), are now also available for Android devices. All three of these apps are available for free on the Google Play Store. For Apple users, never fear, a version of the Controller App will be available for iOS devices very soon. So, no matter which device you use, Furuno will have a free app for your device, giving you the freedom of total control of your NavNet TZtouch system.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
