Among these enhancements, NavNet TZtouch2 software version 8.01 adds the new Fish-It & Drift-It features, an extremely useful tool for fishermen and boaters needing to know the perfect start location to drift over a specific spot.
Create a temporary "Fish-It go-to point" by tapping a location on the chart, such as a pinnacle, wreck, charted artificial reef, or even a hot fishing spot on the Fish Finder screen. Dynamic range rings, a course line between the point and the boat, and a temporary track line are created. A Fish-It data bar with distance and bearing to the point as well as SOG and COG appears along the top of the display. Once a Fish-It spot is created, you can activate Drift-It. This exciting feature automatically calculates a starting point for the vessel to drift directly over your Fish-It waypoint. Just navigate to the starting point and allow the vessel to drift to the Fish-It location within the time selected, within a range of 3 to 20 minutes. Drift-It also helps with anchoring, letting the MFD determine where to drop anchor and get the boat where you’d like it to rest. Fishermen can now play by a totally new set of rules with features found only in Furuno MFDs.
The software update makes these exciting new features available on all NavNet TZtouch2 MFDs, including the TZTL12F, TZTL15F, and the black box TZT2BB. However, the update for the TZT2BB delivers several additional features, exclusive to the TZtouch2 Black Box and its more powerful processor.
PBG allows boaters with the TZT2BB and DFF3D Multibeam Sonar to quickly create their own “Survey Quality” Shaded Relief Maps. Bottom images are drawn with shaded relief, depth contours, and variable colors, making it easy to identify hidden structure and ridges that hold fish in a simple, easy-to-interpret presentation. Each ping covers approximately twice the depth at the time of recording, so at a depth of 100 meters, a 200 meter-wide area is displayed and recorded to your TZT2BB.
Also for the TZT2BB, SiriusXM’s Fish Mapping is a subscription-based service for the BBWX4 Satellite Weather Receiver. Fish Mapping provides eight distinct features for saltwater fishermen in North America, including Fishing Recommendation Areas for 6 fish species as well as information such as Water temperature, SST Contours, 30m Subsurface Temperature Contours, Weed lines, Plankton concentrations, and more.
These exciting new features in NavNet TZtouch2 software version 8.01 will provide boaters even more useful information at their fingertips, allowing them to save both time and fuel, making every day on the water simpler.
