Fusion, Furuno reveal Fusion-Link usage on Navnet TZtouch Series

FUSION-Link on Furuno NavNet TZtouch FUSION Electronics
Fusion®, a worldwide leader in marine and car audio, announced today its Fusion-Link audio access system is now supported by the Furuno NavNet TZtouch series. Providing the ability to control all Fusion 700 Series Marine Entertainment System capabilities and functions directly from the TZtouch true multi-touch display, Fusion-Link makes it easy for Furuno owners to enjoy their onboard audio and video entertainment from their Multi-function Display (MFD).

'We are very pleased to partner with Furuno to bring Fusion-Link integration to their truly advanced TZtouch displays,' said Chris Baird, CEO, Fusion Electronics. 'Now, Furuno owners can enjoy the convenience of our award-winning marine audio at their fingertips.'

The only ‘True Marine’ entertainment solutions on the market, Fusion stereos give Furuno owners unparalleled reliability and performance, and multi-zone audio configuration specific to their vessels. Fusion’s innovative Fusion-Link allows boaters to navigate all stereo sources from their Multifunction Device (MFD) and provides full control of iPod/iPhone music libraries via track, artist, album or playlist with the same ease-of-use and familiar control as on the 700 Series itself. Boaters can control the individual audio zones of a vessel separately or together. Bass, midrange, treble and subwoofer levels are also adjustable. Fusion-Link uses a boat’s ethernet network to connect the Furuno NavNet TZtouch to the 700 Series stereo. Furuno version 3.0 software is required for Fusion-Link capabilities; a Wi-Fi network installation guide is available from Furuno.

'We are pleased that the NavNet TZtouch can now offer an audio solution in addition to its intuitive multi-touch user interface and expandable wireless solutions,' said Yoshifumi Tamura, NavNet TZtouch product manager, Furuno Marine Electronics Products Division. 'Users can control their Fusion 700 Series marine stereo right from NavNet TZtouch display, choosing which songs to play, and controlling frequently-used functions such as volume and source selections – all while navigating from the bridge. Our advanced user interface together with Fusion brings a new level of simplicity to the operation of our MFD’s.'

Fusion-Link will be compatible with the Furuno NavNet TZtouch series models TZT, TZT14 and TZTBB in May 2013. Compatible Fusion stereos include the MS-IP700, MS-IP700i, MS-AV700 and MS-AV700i. Information on the Furuno NavNet TZtouch series is available at Navnet. For more information on Fusion-Link, Fusion or its entire line of 'True Marine' audio products, please contact 800-722-5551 or visit www.fusion-us.com.
