Raymarine gS Series Glass-Bridge Helm System
Starting at $4,999.99; www.raymarine.com
Raymarine’s new glass-bridge system gives boaters a touchscreen solution that works in tandem with a remote keyboard and wireless apps for full control. Each unit uses a fast dual-core processor, plus a dedicated graphics processor for responsive function and networking through Raymarine’s NMEA 2000-ready SeaTalk NG cabling system.
gS Series Multifunction displays come in 9-, 12-, or 15.4-inch sizes and have edge-to-edge glass surfaces for a clean, flush-mounted installation. The LCDs are engineered to eliminate blackout for users wearing polarized sunglasses, according to Raymarine.
The LightHouse user interface means a gS series unit can be a powerful, simple-to-operate, standalone helm solution, or can network with other components in the gS series or with the company’s a, c, and e Series.
The gS Series links to a range of components, such as Raymarine’s ClearPulse CHIRP sonar, color radar, thermal-imaging and IP cameras, a Fusion entertainment system, and more.
