(CAMAS, Wash.) — It’s an instrument. It’s a data organizer. It’s a super display! While Furuno’s new FI70 instrument/data organizer may not make you able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, it will help you manage all of your vessel data in a stylish, compact, single display. This new super unit is a powerhouse when it comes to taking in information from all the different sensors on your vessel, processing it, and then displaying it clearly and concisely.
The FI70 sports a vibrant 4.1-inch color display that matches perfectly with Furuno’s NavNet TZtouch, TZtouch2 and NavPilot autopilot, allowing for a common family look on your helm. It’s visible even in the harshest sunlight conditions and has a night mode to make it easy on your eyes during nighttime operation. The power draw for this unit 1.8 Watts (0.15A/3 LEN) at full 700cd brilliance, making it an efficient instrument for applications where power consumption is a concern.
The unit itself is intuitive to operate, making it a breeze to use, while underway. The FI70 also allows you to customize almost every display property, making this data organizer your personal assistant; displaying the information you want, the way you want. It connects through an NMEA2000/CAN bus network to external sensors installed throughout your vessel. It even has a simple setup that asks you about the type of vessel you have, helping to customize operation.
A wide variety of display modes are available on the FI70, depending on the type of external sensors that are connected to the network. Traditional display modes like Heading, Wind, Rudder, and Highway mode are there, but you will also find an AIS display, Trim Tabs, Engine RPM (single, double or triple) and a variety of data displays. Can’t choose which display mode you like the best? Connect several FI70s side by side and then you don’t have to worry about choosing!
Keeping track of all the information that is being transmitted around your vessel can be daunting, and trying to display it on your MFD can take up valuable real estate. The FI70 data organizer is the perfect solution to your centralized data needs.
