Yamaha Helm MasterThe new Yamaha Helm Master EX offers greater control and fishability for boats powered by single outboard engines.

Perfect for all types of boats, this new joystick option (the same as used on multi-outboard systems) allows boaters who desire single-outboard power to enjoy the vast majority of the long list of benefits* associated with multi-outboard Helm Master EX applications.

Helm Master EX for single applications takes all the benefits of the original Helm Master system and improves on them. Helm Master EX has:
• Re-designed joystick with new smooth-shifting software and control capabilities
• Effortless autopilot that can be adjusted with the joystick
• Precise digital electric steering that can be added to any DEC-capable Yamaha outboard (except 3.3-litre F250 and F350A models)
• New digital electronic control box
• Sharp looks and design

Also new, Helm Master EX (or its properly configured system components) can be installed by the boat builder at the factory, or by dealers when re-powering customer boats at the dealership. This allows boaters flexibility in tailoring their Helm Master EX system to their specific desires.

Yamaha Helm MasterHELM MASTER EX - BENEFITS
• Enhanced joystick manoeuvrability with smooth, quiet, precise operation, new
single-function buttons, and new features like DriftPoint Track. Note that the StayPoint button is inoperative and the ability to move the boat straight sideways is not available in single engine Helm Master EX applications.
• Convenient Yamaha Autopilot features like course and heading hold, Track Point (NAV along waypoints), and two types of pattern steer that seamlessly integrate with Speed Control and Pattern Shift
• Increased comfort, control, and convenience with joystick-adjustability that allows fine tuning of Yamaha Autopilot and SetPoint without leaving current mode – ease of use and more capability
• Incredibly fast and responsive Digital Electric Steering (DES) means precise control with an uncluttered bilge (and can now be added to any current and most previous DECcapable Yamaha outboard models)
• Totally redesigned Digital Electronic Control (DEC) for ergonomic comfort and ease of use – all functions previously on the Helm Master control are now standard on all Helm Master EX system configurations
• Suits a wide variety of boats/applications – fits all current Yamaha DEC outboards and back-fits most for a wide range of re-power flexibility
• Yamaha PowerMatched® Limited Warranty applies to all components within the system

* Note that the StayPoint button is inoperative and the ability to move the boat straight sideways is not available in single engine Helm Master EX applications.

FURUNO'S NAVNET TZTOUCH3 FAMILY EXPANDS WITH INTRODUCTION OF NEW 9-INCH MFD

Furuno's Navnet TZtouch3In early 2020, Furuno introduced NavNet TZtouch3, setting the standard for MFDs by packing powerful features and functions into super-bright and responsive IPS displays. These units are not only the most powerful MFDs on the market, but also the easiest to use, with a variety of screen sizes and interface options to suit any boating style or size of vessel.

Now, Furuno is expanding that ground-breaking line of MFDs with the addition of the TZT9F, a new, smaller MFD that packs the power of NavNet TZtouch3 into a 9” IPS display, suitable for smaller helms, flybridges, and second stations.
