The National Marine Electronics Association has granted NMEA 2000 certification for Geonav's new Multi-Instrument Display.

The certification officially recognizes that Geonav's MID 110 adheres to the protocols of communications with the NMEA 2000 standard.

"Receiving this certification is important because it means boat owners who operate with a NMEA 2000 network can be assured that the MID 110 will communicate with all other NMEA 2000-certified components on their vessel," Bruce Angus, Geonav business director, said in a statement. "It also assures correct and easy installation within the network."

Geonav is part of Johnson Outdoors Marine Electronics, which also includes the Humminbird, Minn Kota and Cannon brands.
