The all-new software features MarineTouch™ touch-screen control optimized for use with Windows 7 and 8 touchscreen tablets, ClearChart™ ultra fast, smooth and brilliantly clear chart presentation, SurePlanner™ simple, intuitive and efficient route and waypoint planning, and ClearDash instrument display for sophisticated and versatile instrumentation that integrates with the Actisense™ NGT-1 NMEA 2000® gateway or standalone instruments via NMEA 0183.

Fugawi Marine 5 is ideal for boaters who require ultimate flexibility for navigation planning or during on-the-water outings to maximize safety, fuel savings and enjoyment.

Boaters can plot GPS position, plan routes, program an autopilot, display Automatic Identification System (AIS) vessels, and view important data on elegant and crystal-clear instrument displays.

Fugawi Marine 5 has a suggested retail price of $299.95 and will be available for purchase at the end of March from leading marine and boating stores throughout North America, Europe and Australasia. Instrument Suite software add-ons are available for $99.95, and an upgrade from any previous Fugawi Marine ENC version to Fugawi Marine 5 is $149.95.
