Sail-World.com : Using your phone to control your MFD on any size boat
Using your phone to control your MFD on any size boat


'Raymarine a series'    .

Using an App on your smart phone or tablet to control your Multifunction Display has just been made possible for any size of boat. Raymarine’s just released new a65 and a67 WiFi multi-function displays (MFDs) deliver all the powerful practicality of the company’s award-winning e-series and c-Series MFDs in compact, affordable and easy-to-use units that are ideal for boats of 9 metres and under.

Thanks to the built-in WiFi, owners of these new a-Series models will be able to use Raymarine’s popular RayRemote and RayControl apps, available for free, to control their MFD directly from virtually any smartphone or tablet.

With RayControl, a tablet becomes both a viewer and a full-function two-way MFD control; users simply touch the tablet screen to control the MFD: pulling up charts, operating radar and sonar, selecting menus, setting waypoints and more. With RayRemote, owners can, with just a tap of the display, use their smartphone to switch between a full screen MFD repeater display and a full screen virtual keypad. Both RayRemote and RayControl are available for Apple iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, and can be purchased via the Apple iTunes App store, Google Play Store for Android and through the Amazon Android Marketplace.

Both rugged new a-Series models have been specially engineered for trailer powerboats and small yachts where space at the helm is limited. Both feature intuitive touchscreens and a supplied mounting bracket enables the skipper to choose exactly where to best position the unit.

The two new WiFi MFDs also come with Raymarine’s intuitive LightHouse user interface, a 50-channel internal GPS and the ability to display Navionics Silver, Gold or Platinum Bathymetric Fishing charts on microSD. The a67 MFD also includes Raymarine’s revolutionary new ClearPulse® digital sonar.

Both a-Series displays can connect with NMEA2000 networks using Raymarine’s SeaTalkng network, allowing owners to display AIS, autopilot and engine instrument information.

The new Raymarine a65 WiFi and a67 WiFi are now available through good marine suppliers
