It means that you can look at radar, sonar or charts and control your display remotely on your smart phone. Chores, such as plotting routes and waypoints, can be performed on your tablet, via this Raymarine fishfinder, from anywhere on your boat. Download a special application through iTunes and any Apple device serves as a remote to your Raymarine fishfinder. A 48-channel GPS receiver is built into this electronic device. Buy a wireless remote designed for this fishfinder and you can even control music at the helm from a smart phone which is stored in a dry, safe location onboard your vessel.
By connecting through a Sirius subscription, you can watch a NexRad radar display on your Raymarine fishfinder. Additional information can be viewed through this, such as sea surface temperatures, storm cells and wave height. With technology supplied by FLIR, Raymarineâs parent company, you can add thermal imaging cameras that reveal images in the nighttime, which are sensitive enough to show a person in the water up to 1,500 feet, or about 460 meters, away.
You can obtain a screen for a Raymarine fishfinder with size. Of course, they have seven-inch, or 18-centimeter; nine-inch, or 23-centimeter; and 12.1-inch, or 30.7-centimeter screens, like other fishfinder manufacturers create. But few make the Raymarine 15.4-inch, or 39-centimeter screen. A special screen coating stops a graying out of the screen when you wear polarized sunglasses.
Raymarine fishfinders come with or without pre-installed maps. You have the choice of several regional cartography software, as well as Navionics international edition that includes charts of Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and Southern Asia. Mapping software upgrades are available, handing you more in-depth charts of specific regions of the world.
