OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN), today
announced that Yamaha Marine Group has selected the Garmin
7-inch GPSMAP® multi-function display (MFD) platform to power
its new CL7TM multi-touch display. As the primary display for
Command Link Plus® and Helm Master®, Yamaha’s
fully integrated boat control system, the CL7 is fully network capable
for NMEA 2000® and the Garmin Marine Network. Full-network
compatibility allows the user to add multiple Garmin screens, sensors,
sonar, weather, radar, autopilot, Fusion Link, IP cameras and more with
full system integration and sharing across the entire system. The CL7
will be standard for Helm Master and will be the premium display for all
Command Link Plus outboard engines starting in May 2017.
“It’s an honor to have been selected as the display choice for Yamaha’s
new CL7,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer
sales. “Built on the GPSMAP 74/7600 series platform, the CL7 offers
streamlined performance and integrated features that are pivotal to
improving the consumer boating experience.”
“The features and capabilities of the new Yamaha CL7 display make
command of Yamaha-powered craft easier and more informative than ever
before,” said Ben Speciale, President, Yamaha Marine Group. “We chose
Garmin to power this display to offer enhanced features for ease of use
and a more controlled, convenient experience on the water.”
The new CL7 touchscreen display becomes the primary display for Command
Link Plus systems as well as Helm Master. It is the required point of
access to Yamaha’s new Set Point™ boat positioning function, and offers
precise and user-customizable engine and boat systems data for up to
four outboards on one screen. The CL7 is offered in two models: one with
built-in detailed BlueChart® g2 U.S. coastal and LakeVü HD
maps, and one with a worldwide basemap.
