Boaters will now have access to endless information and data at the touch of a finger. The Navico Information Display has been designed to feed boaters all of the critical information they could possibly desire as soon as they need it.

The Navico Information Display is available with your choice of Lowrance, Simrad or B&G electronics. One or multiple displays can be bridged together to function as one integrated system. The centralized hub uses Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity along with Sonar, USB, CAN and NMEA 2000 ports to connect to all onboard systems. Importantly, the Information Display is fully upgradeable, with long-life display technology, making it a great investment for both boat builders and future owners.

“Information displays are the realisation of a long-term goal shared by both boat builders and Navico — a sleek, custom, fully upgradable, automotive-like, bonded-glass display capable of sharing information from all systems on board a boat,” said Leif Ottosson, CEO, Navico. “The days of cluttered, mixed-brand dashes with varying UI’s are now a thing of the past — as are the struggles of our boat builder partners to keep up with the latest in the design of marine electronics. Our information displays mark a new level of convenient access to navigation and critical vessel data and a new standard in boating.”
