V3 TZtouch software available

Postby Johnny Electron » Mon Jun 24, 2013 6:35 am

It was only a few months ago that we released the first major software update for our acclaimed TZtouch navigation network, with features such as FLIR camera control, fuel tank management, and an improved user-interface. We are now pleased to announce the release of another major update... TZtouch v3.01.
Some of the most anticipated enhancements included in v3.01 software include:

TruEcho™ CHIRP Network Fish Finder Compatibility - Version 3.01 lays the ground-work for our upcoming introduction of the DFF1-UHD TruEcho CHIRP Network Fish Finder. TruEcho CHIRP will provide exceptional broadband resolution, along with Bottom Discrimination and Accu-Fish functionality for the TZT9, TZT14 and TZTBB. Complete details regarding the DFF1-UHD will be announced in the very near future.

Fusion™ Audio Control - NavNet TZtouch v3.01 transforms into a hybrid MFD Media Player. When a Fusion MS700 series audio system is connected to a TZtouch network, you will be able to control features such as audio source, volume, zone control and much more, directly from the TZtouch MFD.

NavPilot 700 Autopilot Control - With v3.01 software, NavNet TZtouch MFDs become a remote control for NavPilot 700 or 711 Autopilot systems. With a simple RotoKey menu selection, a NavPilot control window will appear on your TZtouch display, allowing you to adjust course, select Auto or Nav modes, and even indicate the turn mode.

Additional features and enhancements:
• Compatibility with Axis H.264 video format. (Consult tech data for details)

• Mercury/Zeus Autopilot compatibility with IF-NMEA2K2 (Ver 1.03 and above)

• Compatibility with FAR2xx7 Series Radars

• Compatibility with the FCV1150 Fish Finder

• External touch screen mode (TZT14 only)

• Added Second Guard Zone and Blank Sector in the Radar display

• Weather data is now shared between displays via Ethernet

• Newly available TTA and DTA data in "Goto" box

Improved user-interface and visual presentation:
• Improved Wireless LAN Status indication

• SST color bar slider scale added to right side of screen

• Improved route and point transfer to NavNet 3D

• Optimized active route synchronization with NavNet 3D and MaxSea TimeZero

• Added ability to easily update software using an Internet connection

Instructions for updating TZtouch to version 3.01 can be found on our website under the software tab for each TZtouch MFD. If you are upgrading from v2.01, beginning the week of June 24th, you will be able to update the TZtouch software using an Internet connection. Check out our "Quick Takes" video below, which walks you through this process. We also offer a pre-programmed SD-card, which carries a $25 List Price (part #TZT-914-SD1).

For a more detailed description of these changes, plus many additional improvements, please review the NavNet TZtouch v3.01 Update document, which can be found under the "Software" tab of the individual TZtouch product pages.
