MERRIMACK, N.H. and MIAMI, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Miami International Boat Show -- Raymarine, Inc., a world leader in marine electronics, today invited all Miami International Boat Show attendees to its "virtual sea trial exhibit," featuring an interactive simulator outfitted with the company's new E-Series Widescreen Multifunction Displays (MFD) with HybridTouch™. The simulator has two E140W multifunction displays connected to state-of-the art maritime simulation software. Located in booth A95, adjacent to Raymarine's main exhibit, the simulator will let boaters try out the E-Series display's new touch screen and redesigned user interface, while feeling as if they're really navigating on the water.

The simulator's design recreates the look and feel of a premium center console sport fishing boat. Realistic controls include an actual hydraulic steering system and twin engine controls with electronic shift and throttle. The simulation also features high quality audio, enabling visitors to hear and feel feedback from the virtual engines. A central big-screen display provides a realistic view of the boating environment through the windshield including navigation aids, landmarks, traffic and weather.

All of the Raymarine electronics receive virtual GPS position and instrument data enabling them to behave and respond in sync with the computer generated environment. In addition to the E140W's, the virtual helm is outfitted with Raymarine's ST70 Plus instruments, and fully functional SmartPilot autopilot system.


"The Miami Boat Show is a great opportunity for boaters to interact with our products first hand," said Dave Bimschleger, President of Raymarine, Inc. "With our 'Virtual Sea Trial' we are letting boaters test drive and experience our new E-Series Widescreen just like they are on the water. We are confident after a cruise on our virtual sea trial boaters will find E-Series Widescreen to be our most flexible and easy-to-use navigation system."


Raymarine's E-Series Widescreen with HybridTouch features an innovative interface that combines the ease of touch screen technology with the confidence of full keypad control in rough seas or inclement weather. The optically bonded LCD display improves contrast and readability, and offers superior sensitivity and accuracy to minimize false inputs from rain, spray and other contaminants. Additional features of Raymarine's E-Series Widescreen include:

  • Preloaded Navionics ready-to-navigate electronic charts for the coastal U.S.
  • A powerful 2D-3D chart engine utilizing Navionics Platinum+ charts powered by TurboView technology.
  • HD Digital Bird Mode, a new feature that automatically optimizes the radar display to track sea birds at a distance, giving anglers the long range intelligence they need to find schools of fish.
  • High speed radar scanning, which automatically increases the radar scanner's rotation speed to 48 rpm, providing optimal tracking of fast moving targets at short ranges.

 

Raymarine's "virtual sea trial" will be open during regular show hours and can be found at booth A95. To learn more about Raymarine's E-Series Widescreen with HybridTouch, please visit: http://www.raymarine.com.
