Mercury Marine introduced the VesselView903, which it calls its largest and most advanced multifunction display.
VesselView903 features a 16-by-9 aspect ratio, a high-definition glass touch screen with glare-reducing coating and dimmable lighting.
Similar to the VesselView703 launched at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show, the technology incorporates all of the Simrad accessories for the Go9 product line, including radar, sonar transducers, fishfinder transducers, AIS, VHF, Sonic Hub/Fusion Link/ SiriusXM, and C-Zone/Naviop digital switching.
VesselView903 features a built-in 10HZ GPS and chart-plotter capability — regional electronic chart cards are purchased separately.
The touch-screen interface (an optional remote-control button interface is available) offers auto notification of software updates through the embedded Wi-Fi.
“Our next-generation VesselView technology allows boaters the ability to simultaneously display information for up to four engines at a time in an easy-to-use touch-screen interface,” Mercury Marine VesselView program manager Zachary Savage said in a statement.
The technology supports 16 languages and multiple unit conversions. With VesselView Link, boaters have the ability to fully integrate the propulsion system and make their display multifunctional (included in the kit).
It also provides a descriptive fault text display, as well as up-to-date information for more than 30 engine parameters, including fuel level and range, oil temperature and pressure, battery voltage, water depth and genset.
