New RayControl and RayRemote give boaters full MFD control and viewing from smart phones and tablets.
Raymarine announced the launch of two new mobile apps for smart phones and tablets. Available for both iOS and Android platforms, the new RayRemote and RayControl apps put boaters in full command of Raymarine's new c-Series and e-Series multifunction navigation displays. Taking advantage of the advanced wireless capabilities of the new c-Series and e-Series, these powerful new apps allow boaters to interact with electronic charting, sonar, radar, and even thermal night vision--right from their smart phone or tablet.
The new RayControl app transforms tablets, like the Apple iPad into a full function Raymarine MFD repeater with seamless touch screen interaction between the tablet and MFD. RayControl also provides a virtual slide out keypad that emulates the actual keypad of Raymarine c-Series and e-Series MFDs, giving boaters the freedom to interact with their Raymarine navigation system from anywhere on board.
The new RayRemote app is optimized for smart phone displays and offers full screen viewing and remote control. RayRemote lets boaters switch between a full screen repeater display and a full screen virtual keypad with just a tap of the display. The virtual remote keypad emulates all MFD controls, including cursor and rotary controls, allowing boaters to navigate features, rotate through menus, and make adjustments effortlessly.
The RayControl and RayRemote apps join the existing free RayViewer app in the Apple iTunes App store, Google Play Store for Android, and the Amazon Android Marketplace. RayControl is available for $49.99 and RayRemote is $29.99. Raymarine e-Series and c-Series owners can connect with Raymarine mobile apps by upgrading their MFD to v3.15 software, available at www.raymarine.com.
