Electronics Update

chapter-6-open-helm-at-nightHand Held Future…Now!

Marine electronics leader Raymarine offers a next-gen addition to its line up of nav instruments

Raymarine is pleased to announce an all-new version of its popular Wi-Fish mobile app for use with Dragonfly-PRO and Wi-Fish CHIRP Sonar systems. The app has been expanded and now includes Augmented Reality Viewing of your saved waypoints and fishing hot-spots.

The app works with the GPS, compass and camera in your smartphone or tablet to show precisely where you are in relation to your saved waypoints. The name, symbol, bearing and range to each waypoint is displayed as a dynamic overlay on a real-time view of the waterway in front of you.

Simply pan your smartphone or tablet 360° across the horizon, the precise positions of your waypoints are shown on the live camera feed. This makes it easier than ever to locate your favorite fishing spots and navigate right to them!

Raymarine has also added a mobile-friendly mapping view to the app. You can now see a bird’s-eye view of your location with all of your waypoints plotted, right on your smartphone. You can easily select your destination and view it on the map or in Augmented Reality mode. The app also now synchronizes your stored waypoints using the Dragonfly-PRO’s Wi-Fi connection so your waypoints are always available – even when you are away from the boat.

Finally, the improved Wi-Fish app contain a new View-Switcher menu with an expanded selection of ways to look at your CHIRP DownVision™, fish targeting sonar, augmented reality view, map view, and combination views. Like always, you still have the ability to pause and rewind the sonar as well as capture and share screen shots right from your mobile device.

To use the Augmented Reality mode, you must be running the new Wi-Fish app on a GPS enabled smartphone or tablet. Tablets without built-in GPS will still be able to access all of the sonar features of the app, but won’t be able to switch into Augmented reality mode.

The updated Wi-Fish mobile app is available now in the Apple iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad devices. Android versions of the app will be available in their respective stores shortly. The Wi-Fish App is free and works with Dragonfly 4-PRO, 5-PRO, 7-PRO, and theWi-Fish Wi-Fi sonar system.

In addition to downloading the new app for your mobile device, Dragonfly-PRO owners will also need to update their sonar’s software to version 12.10, which is available at http://www.raymarine.com/software

M-618CS INTRODUCES GYRO-STABILIZED
THERMAL NIGHT VISION

 High-Resolution Thermal Night Vision with a Color TV Camera

FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced the release of the latest addition to its industry-leading M-Series family of thermal night vision cameras, the new gyro-stabilized M-618CS.

This exciting new M-Series camera offers powerful new features, including:

High resolution thermal night vision – 640 x 480 resolution, along with 2× and 4× E-Zoom, provide clear, detailed images from farther away than you ever thought possible, even in total darkness.

Extended range performance –  The M-618CS’s 35 mm thermal lens can detect small vessels from over 2 miles away, giving you more time to see and avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Active gyro-stabilization – Provides steady imagery, even in rough seas; this is critical for getting the most out of the M-618CS’s long-range cameras.

Color TV camera with 10x optical zoom – Continuous zoom can match the thermal camera’s e-zoom for easy operation when switching between cameras.

Housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure that provides continuous 360° pan and +/-90° tilt capability, the M-618CS provides horizon-to-horizon coverage, and incorporates cutting-edge Ethernet connectivity for easy installation and control. No one else has ever offered all of these cutting edge features at this price point.

The M-Series Control Unit makes for safe, easy, and intuitive operation.
