Enhanced readability in direct sunlight is achieved through the in-plane switching touchscreen displays.

Retrofitting it in a larger variety of dashboard designs is quick and simple thanks to its slimline display borders, glass that extends to the edges, and decreased unit size.
Auto Guidance technology, which includes the most up-to-date data from Garmin and Navionics, is included in the preloaded mapping such as LakeVü g3 and BlueChart g3. By pairing the built-in Wi-Fi networking with the free ActiveCaptain app, users can access OneChart, smart alerts, software upgrades, and more.
