    Garmin/Furuno BIG SCREEN KIT

    Hi guys and girls
    we have been working on a few large add on screens for the Furuno TZT3 , Garmin 84xx and 86xx range of MFDs and 8700 black box
    Basically, we had some clients with bass boats and flybridge boats that were going out and finding that a second big mfd wasn’t in their budget.. or that a smaller screen wasn’t suiting their eyes as they got older

    for ages, we have been running displays off mfs “mostly to TVs in large saloons or sportfishing yachts for… fun basically”
    but we wanted to bring a touch screen element to the party.

    So we wanted a touch screen monitor that would meet or exceed Garmin and Furunos specifications to be used in 2nd helm/fishing locations
    we came out with a 17.3″ a 18.5″ and a 24″
    We understand that these are big and not for everyone. nor is it the first of its kind. but we haven’t been able to find many that hit these levels of quality. but it’s just an option

    So some numbers
    The screens are Full HD 1920×1080 resolution
    IPS in-plane switching for viewing angles and polarised sunglasses
    1500nitts brightness for view-ability in sunlight (exceeding Garmin 1200)
    10 point multi-touch (not that it matters much for the Garmin operating system, which is a maximum of 2 point touch)
    1000:1 contrast ratio
    IP67 weatherproof with waterproof mil-spec plugs for HDMI,USB,DC,VGA

    We oped to use a VESA mounting pattern.. instead of a bracket… we felt this gave most amount of options for mounting footprint and allowed for the most amount of the angles
    The screens are only 48mm deep with a heavy metal body for heat distribution
    Membrane touch buttons on the back of the units for settings

    We are always looking for feedback and suggestions
    Thanks!

    So what are these worth?

    Pricing?

    are there any plans for a more basic display that doesn’t have touch screen? Like just to display what’s on the sounder to those at the back of a larger boat with a cabin where the sounder can’t be seen easily?
    Democracy: Simply a system that allows the 51% to steal from the other 49%.

    No imediate plans for a non touch version. this is in our scope but the dual interacting touch component is what makes these systems worth while.

    Currently the 17.3" kit is $2300
    18.5" kit is $2600
    24" kit is $3100
