Product Overview

Large, easy-to-read digits and graphs provide high contrast and high visibility.

The GNX™ series of marine instruments are the first glass-bonded marine instruments with a combination of directly driven LCD segments and a dot-matrix field to display graphical information. Large, easy-to-read digits and graphs provide high contrast and high visibility.

Their low power consumption is well suited for use on sailboats, and provides valuable instruments for cruising and fishing. Fully customizable user profiles display wind, depth and speed data. Glass-bonded displays with anti-glare lenses avoid fogging.

Displays are either positive format, with dark digits on a white background, or negative format, with light digits on a black background. The GNX Keypad allows ontrol of compatible GNX instrument displays from a distance with a push-button keypad interface which can be fixed-mounted near the helm.
