TZtouch user interface gets updated and refined

In 2012, FURUNO set a new standard for touch screen technology with the introduction of the marine industry's first multi touch navigation system.FURUNO continue to leverage the latest hardware and software technology with their newest MFD (Multi Function Display) introduction, NavNet TZtouch2.

This "next step" in the NavNet series takes the feature set of the award-winning TZtouch and refines it to make these new MFD units even more intuitive, while also adding new features, making this a must-have piece of electronics on any helm.

TZtouch2 is the updated and refined, but also familiar user interface. FURUNO designers used bright, bold colors, with easy to identify icons for the display selection of Radar, Fish Finder, Chart Plotter, Weather, Camera, Instruments and Nav Data. Creating custom display pages is as easy as dragging and dropping the icon onto the display creator. Accessing different displays is done by tapping on the Home icon, or utilizing the new "Edge Swipe" motion.

Just swipe down from the top of the screen and display page options drop down for quick and easy access. You can "Edge Swipe" from all four sides to access various options. Swipe the right side to view contextually appropriate menus, swipe the left side and you get navigation data, swipe from the bottom for chart and data layer options. Rather than digging through menus, all of the important options are now just a swipe away.

NavNet TZtouch2 is a component-based system that utilizes FURUNO's award winning network products. NavNet TZtouch introduced the capability to access tablets and smartphones via Wireless LAN and TZtouch2 continues that ability.
