Furuno Unveils Low-Cost Color Video Plotter — Literature Available

Furuno-qualty color plotting is now available for the smaller vessel with the GD-200 color video plotter. Based on the company's well-proven, computerized plotter control system, the GD-200 uses a high-resolution, low-cost color monitor to display a visual readout of own ship's course and navigation marks in seven ownerselectable colors.

The new unit offers many traditional Furuno video plotter features: accepts navigation inputs from Loran, satnav, or Omega; electronic selection of chart scale (from V3 mile square to 56,000 miles square); shifting of the entire display in any direction; and digital display of major system parameters on the CRT.

A bright, 14-inch CRT facilitates navigation, fishing, and other marine activities. Both true and relative motion display modes can be selected, and even individual courseline segments can be shown in different colors. A total memory capacity of 1,500 points is provided, and a built-in battery protects stored information. Even fairways and coastlines can be shown by interconnecting event marks. Up to 10 identified waypoints and a destination can be entered.
