Simrad MX612 Navigation System

A New Generation

Designed to system match the new generation of Simrad Autopilots (AP60, AP70 and AP80), the sleek new design, complete with low profile bezel and colour display, offers a new look to the more traditional navigation systems. The 5” LCD bonded screen delivers a clearer and fog-proof display with wide viewing angles.
Functionality & Configuration
The MX612 features hot keys for direct access to info such as position and navigation data, and you can enjoy the convenience of heading and AIS data when an appropriate GPS compass or AIS unit is available on the NMEA 2000 network. Operators also have the opportunity to save and restore navigation data using a USB memory stick. The USB port can also be used for optional software updates.
The new generation of Simrad Professional navigation systems offer more NMEA 0183 serial ports. The MX612 includes 12 ports. This multi-port interface allows simple plug-and-play connectivity to other NMEA devices such as ECDIS, AIS, Gyro and other navigation information systems.
Although you can purchase a complete MX612 system including an MX521A smart antenna, the control unit is also compatible with a range of current Simrad antennas making replacement of previous CDU models like MX420, MX510 or MX512 easier. Integrate the MX610 with the Simrad MX575C DGPS Compass, GS70 antenna or HS80 GPS compass.
