Fusion, the New Zealand-based marine entertainment company, is now able to integrate its Fusion-Link audio system with the Furuno NavNet TZtouch2 interface. “We are excited to extend FUSION-Link capabilities to Furuno’s latest and most advanced TZtouch2 displays,” said Chris Baird, managing director of Fusion.

The integration of the two products means that as well as being able to control audio systems from the bridge the NavNet allows the user to access video entertainment as well. Fusion-Link centralises the music libraries from all connected iPods, iPhones, Androids, CD and DVD libraries into a single library, organised by track, artist, album or playlist.


“As a second generation NavNet TZtouch, TZtouch2 boasts a number of refinements in design, hardware and user interface,” said Ryo Yamasaki, NavNet TZtouch2 product manager, Furuno Marine Electronics Products Division. “In addition to its quick and easy audio control with the touch screen, TZtouch2 features a new Fusion Auto Volume option which automatically adjusts sound volume based on the speed of the boat. With TZtouch2, FUSION audio control is simpler and more convenient than ever before.”
