Getting a good education


Even after many years of electronic charts being a mainstay of marine electronics, the fact is that many mariners still aren’t familiar with all the features and capabilities of these software products. Education is the answer and at the recent Miami show, Furuno and MaxSea took this to heart by setting up a 20-seat classroom at the Furuno booth.

A MaxSea instructor worked through the various features of the program, the latest release is MaxSea 12.5, and show attendees were able to follow along on the big screen. Wonder when we’ll start seeing screen this big on voyaging boats? The cockpit of the future might be billed as “cockpit/home theater!”
