Raymarine rolls out two new apps

Raymarine launched a new series of free apps that enable users to control e- and c-Series multifunction displays wirelessly from a tablet or smart phone. The new apps - RayControl and RayRemote - are available for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire.

RayControl transforms tablets into both a viewer and a full-function two-way control; the tablet syncs with the MFD and users touch the tablet screen to pull up charts, operate radar and thermal cameras, select menus and set waypoints in the same way as operating the MFD directly. RayControl also features a “pop-out” virtual keypad mirroring the MFD’s rotary controller and hard keys, enabling users to operate all available functions wirelessly and remotely.

RayRemote is designed for use on smart phones, switching their smaller screens between a full-screen MFD repeater display and a full-screen virtual keypad with just a tap of the display. The virtual keypad mimics the one found on the MFD, including cursor and rotary controls, allowing users to navigate features and rotate through menus.

Both apps work with all of Raymarine’s new e Series and c Series MFDs; e Series and c Series owners can connect their MFDs to Raymarine mobile apps by upgrading their MFD to v3.15 software, available as a free download at www.raymarine.com.
