Explore & Learn
We’ll help you navigate the complex and changing world of Marine Electronics with this in-depth resource center. Learn about the latest technologies available.
Stay Connected, Stay Safe
Get crew overboard alerts on your smartphone with the Pittman award-winning CrewWatcher Bluetooth MOB Alarm System. By clipping a small beacon to their life jacket or foul weather gear, the CrewWatcher actively monitors those onboard to ensure they’re not in the water.
Iridium-Based Communication & Tracking System
A reliable offshore email and text messaging communication platform that works almost anywhere in the world. Plus it keeps track of your boat’s bilge water level, the status of your shore power connections and provides theft-deterrent security. Meet the Mazu app, a new entry in the growing “smart boat” marketplace.
Combine Smart Boat Tech with Social Networking
Garmin calls their ActiveCaptain™ app an “all-in-one app for the ultimate connected boating experience.” With it, you can control your chartplotter from your smartphone or tablet and receive notifications and text messages on your chartplotter screen. See what else this app can do for boaters.
Amazing New Displays
If you’ve ever taken off your polarized sunglasses to see your chartplotter screen, some new developments in LCD displays will interest you. IPS (in-plane switching) displays are the next wave of technology and the major electronics players are all in the game.
Doppler Radar Helps Avoid Collisions
What’s the latest in marine radar? Doppler! We’re all familiar with the Doppler Effect, which we experience every time a fire truck roars by with its siren blaring. This commonplace effect that makes the siren’s pitch drop to a lower frequency as the truck passes is now harnessed in Garmin’s Fantom radar units. That’s good news for boaters navigating in crowded harbors.
